Cyberpunk 2077: This is what Cyberpunk looks like in the UE5 engine

The YouTuber Enfant Terrible has taken the trouble and parts from the now more than presentable role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 (from 24.00€ at buy) recreated in the new Unreal Engine 5.

The optical leap is amazing. After a few updates, Cyberpunk has now almost become the role-playing game that the developers of CD Projekt Red had actually promised at the launch.

Aside from a few minor technical niggles that still plague the walk through Night City here and there, the game as it stands is almost a GOTY contender. It was only recently announced that the developers were saying goodbye to the in-house RedEngine for a new game from the Witcher universe.

Instead of the graphics engine that was previously used in all CD Projekt Red games, the new and apparently quite powerful Unreal Engine 5 is now supposed to provide unprecedented graphic splendor for the open world and the characters romping around in it.

The tech-savvy YouTuber Enfant Terrible doesn’t seem to want to wait at least 4 more years for the new game and has thought about what Cyberpunk would have looked like if the developers had had this flash of inspiration earlier.

He has recreated numerous areas and even some characters from Cyberpunk 2077 and the result is absolutely stunning. In addition to greatly improved textures, light and surface effects, the extremely realistic faces of the game characters thanks to Metahuman inspire. From that point of view, there is no question: using Unreal Engine 5 would not have been a bad choice for Cyberpunk 2077.
