New Vegas Looks Amazing in Unreal Engine 5

Fallout: New Vegas has aged over the years, but it’s still a fantastic entry in the series, and this video shows what a modern take could look like.

Released in 2010, Fallout: New Vegas stands out as a landmark entry in the long-running post-apocalyptic franchise. Easily considered by many to be the best fallout game to ever be released, its fantastic story and writing has made it more memorable than the other installments to some, especially when compared to the modern take added to the games since Bethesda took over in 2008. However, Fallout: New Vegas has aged over the past decade or so, and a recently released video shows what the game could look like in a more modern engine.


As spotted by DSO Gaming, footage created by the YouTube channel TeaserPlay shows what Fallout: New Vegas might look like if it were to be remade today in Unreal Engine 5. As can be imagined, the Mojave Wasteland looks pretty spectacular in this development kit, demonstrating intricate detail as well as some fantastic lighting, as many have come to expect from this engine . It should be pointed out that the video does not represent any remake, official or otherwise, that’s currently being worked on and is just a concept trailer.

If this idea sounds familiar, that’s because TeaserPlay has put out numerous trailers of this ilk. Recently, they released a video showing what Grand Theft Auto 3 could look like in Unreal Engine 5. They’ve also done concepts for Vice City, Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil 4, Red Dead Revolver, and many more. It’s an interesting project, as not only does it show the potential for reimagining older games in newer toolkits, but it also gives some insight into how advanced gaming technology has come even in a short span of time.

Unreal Engine is one of the most popular game engines in the world, being used in all manner of AAA and independent titles. The latest version was made available not long ago and is being used in the development of a number of anticipated games, such as red fallthe new Layers of Fearand CD Projekt Red’s upcoming The Witcher continuation.

As for the series itself, Bethesda recently confirmed Fallout 5 will be made at some point. Admittedly, it’s quite a long way off, as the studio wants to work on The Elder Scrolls 6 first. This means it could be a very long time before a new fallout entry sees the light of day. Still, videos like the one TeaserPlay has recently put out is a fun experiment in seeing what could happen if a game more than a decade old were to be remade using current technology.

Fallout: New Vegas is available now for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
