Check out this gorgeous Mirror’s Edge inspired Unreal Engine 5 project

If you’re a longtime Mirror’s Edge fan, 3D environment artist Thomas Ripoll might be creating something that will put a smile on your face. Built with the shiny new Unreal Engine 5, Thomas has tweeted screenshots of their own project, and it looks like they’ve made it work.

Linked above is a tweet containing multiple screenshots of this early project, all of which feature the perfect mix of minimalism and modernism, with clean primary colors pasted on a sea of ​​bright white urban sprawl. Everything in the image above is homemade and immediately fits the Mirror’s Edge aesthetic.

According to the creators, they want to have something playable in this loving Mirror’s Edge-style game, and despite no coding experience, a dedicated parkour motion system may not be available at the moment. Still, even running in these settings is lush and will undoubtedly invite a surge of nostalgia.

These scenes also appeared quickly, with Unreal Engine 5 only being released to the public earlier this month. We’ve seen some great-looking projects in the wild, like the excellent Matrix UE5 demo and the fun Simpsons Hit and Run project released a while back. Now that the engine is available to anyone, it’s only a matter of time before we see an influx of more cool projects.

What do you think of this? Would you like to see the new Mirror’s Edge game using Unreal Engine 5? If this is the case, let us know below and be sure to give Thomas some love!
