Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5 promises to be the next major step and engine for game developers out there, with many impressive tech demos showing off its capabilities. Of course, for gamers, it's less about the technology and more about the quality of experience the game delivers. The fact that CD Projekt Red chose Unreal Engine 5 for the new Witcher game instead of its proprietary engine speaks volumes in this regard though.
Furthermore, there have been tons of Unreal Engine 5 concept videos made online that have only boosted hype for games made with its capabilities. It all remains to be seen, of course, but some of these videos stand head and shoulder over others.
Assassin's Creed Japan Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
Assassin's Creed fans have wanted Japan in the franchise for years, and it seems safe to say that this concept trailer captures that perfectly.
Assassin's Creed Persia Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
Another AC video takes fans to Persia/Iran, one of the rumored AC Infinity settings, and shows off ruins, deserts, and landscapes. It doesn't really show off any potential UE5 gameplay, but it does show off the graphical fidelity capable of the engine.
Bloodborne 2 Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
If there's one concept game on this list that fans have wanted for a long time, it's this one. Bloodborne is one of the most popular games of the PS4 era, and whether it's a remake, a next-gen update, or a sequel, fans want Sony/From to do more with the IP. This fan-made Bloodborne 2 trailer scratches that itch perfectly.
Breaking Bad Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
This fan-made Breaking Bad Unreal Engine 5 trailer isn't the most impressive demonstration of its capabilities, with simple gameplay and disturbing facial animations, but it's the idea that sold the video. A Breaking Bad game would be a slow burn and would perhaps be suited for a few select genres, but there's no doubt many would love to play in this universe.
Fallout: New Vegas Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
This New Vegas Unreal Engine 5 trailer shows off the landscapes of the Mojave Wasteland, with impressive visuals and a newfound sense of exploration, and even shows off the city's lights from a distance. New Vegas is one of the most popular Fallout titles, and the city itself is a reason for that. It would shine in any form of Fallout: New Vegas Remake.
Grand Theft Auto 6 Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
Recent reports suggest that Grand Theft Auto 6 will take place in the Miami-inspired Vice City, and this video shows off recreations of it in Unreal Engine 5, as well as other GTA cities. It's impossible for GTA 6 hype to intensify any more than it already has, but this concept video is promising nonetheless.
God of War Remake Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
There's certainly a case for the original God of War trilogy to be remade for the PS5, with this Unreal Engine 5 concept video showing what that could look like. A lot more detail is put into Kratos and his surroundings, while the gameplay definitely seems more reminiscent of the one-shot approach in God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarok.
Resident Evil 4 Fan-Made Unreal Engine 5 Trailer
Visual capabilities are paramount in any horror game, and the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake is certainly aware of that. However, this concept trailer is too, and it continues to show off the potential of the engine, especially when compared to the upcoming game.
