Gerudo Valley from Legend of Zelda Looks Awesome in Unreal Engine 4
Cernescu Andrei / 4 years ago
The Zelda Unreal Engine 4 project by CryZENx has just received a brand new addition in the form of a new map. This time around, the recreated map is Gerudo Valley from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Using Unreal Engine 4.11, CryZENx has done a great job as usual, and the great news is that you can actually download this demo right here and try it out on your own rig. What’s really impressive is that the entire map was recreated from scratch, which means that it required quite a lot of work in order to be complete. The map is based on the 3DS version of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and even though we’ve definitely covered some of CryZENx’s projects before, this one is definitely one of the most impressive.
The lighting and the sharp textures immediately catch the eye, but a closer look reveals more subtle details such as a heat wave effect, dust particles and depth of field. The project shows off exactly how effective Unreal Engine 4 can be at recreating classic titles, and I think it goes without saying that a complete recreation of this game would make us all very happy. However, given the fact that that’s quite unlikely to happen, all we can do for now is enjoy the work of talented modders.
