This is How Jaw-Dropping Metal Gear Solid Could Look in Unreal Engine 4


There are several advanced video game development engines that are praised for making dynamic next-gen video game content for the latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, but among the most striking ones is Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4. Fourth in the family, the number of next-gen games being developed using Unreal Engine 4 is not huge, but its capabilities have been shown off many times with custom projects. Here is another project that shows how Konami's all-time hit Metal Gear Solid could look like in Unreal Engine 4.

Creating something that has already been created once in a fairly better way, using improved tools almost always gives out a better result. In past months, we have seen many staggering custom video game projects that involve reconstruction of environments and characters from already released video games, and almost all of these projects look way better than the original video games. Today we have another such project carried out using Unreal Engine 4, which is one of the top video game development engines that currently fall into the next-gen standard.

The fourth iteration of Epic's development tech has a lot of potential, and here is a good example to prove it. Polycount's member The_Distiller has shared some images and GIFs from a project that he has been working on for over a year now. Inspired by Konami's famous Metal Gear Solid series, the images show the series' newly redesigned characters with incredible detail and jaw-dropping textures, all developed in Unreal Engine 4. The close-up of faces in the images also shows the new skin shader that will be officially added to upcoming 4.5 version of Unreal Engine 4.

So without further ado, check out the screenshots and GIFs below and see for yourself how powerful Epic's latest video game development engine is.
