The Legend of Zelda Looks Right at Home in Unreal Engine 4 Demo

Posted 1 year ago

‘CryZENx’ has released a new video showcasing Link from the legendary Legend of Zelda series, running around in the Unreal Engine 4 Kite environment. As with the previous projects made by ‘CryZENx’, with Mario and Sonic, the latest features somewhat rough animations, but Link does seem a bit more at home in the open world environment of the demo, as The Legend of Zelda is more akin to a meadow environment compared to the other recent offerings.

You can enjoy a tease of what a “Next-Gen” Zelda title would look like below:

Other notable Unreal Engine 4 projects include the gorgeous Absention, a new survival horror title inspired by true survival horror greats such as Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness and Silent Hill so fans can expect a mixture of mental challenge, intense gameplay, and immersive environments.

Unreal Engine forum member ‘koola‘ has recently released two screenshots from his latest project, that looked just absolutely mind-blowing, and now he has released two more images from the map and a video showcasing fully procedural ground textures. Koola mentions that big rocks come from the Epic Kite Demo.


Koola has previously delivered some hyper realistic real-time architectural visualizations using Unreal Engine 4. Taking advantage of both the power and accessibility of UE4, the results of his work have wowed colleagues and has garnered attention from the international press and the Unreal team at Epic. Earlier this year Koola became the very first recipient of the inaugural Unreal Dev Grants program, a financial development fund designed to incentivize and reward innovative projects designed in Unreal Engine 4.
