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

If you’re a jaded old fan of Mirror’s Edge, 3D environment artist Thomas Ripoll may be creating something that will put a smile on your face. Built with the new Unreal Engine 5, Thomas posted screenshots of his own project on Twitter, and it looks like they nailed it.

The link above contains the tweet featuring several screenshots of this first project, all of which feature this impressive blend of minimalism and modernism with clean primary colors glued against a sea of ​​crisp white urban sprawl. Everything in the images above is homemade and immediately matches the Mirror’s Edge aesthetic.

According to the creator, they would like to have something playable in this loving recreation of the Mirror’s Edge style, although without coding experience, a dedicated parkour movement system may be beyond their ability at this time. Still, even running through these environments would feel lush and no doubt induce a wave of nostalgia.

These scenes also came out quickly, with Unreal Engine 5 not being released to the public until earlier this month. We’ve seen some brilliant-in-the-wild projects before, like the excellent Matrix UE5 demo and a fun Simpsons Hit and Run project released a while ago. Now, with anyone able to play with the engine, it’s only a matter of time before we see even cooler projects coming along.

What do you think about this? Would you like to see a new Mirror’s Edge game using Unreal Engine 5? Let us know below if so, and be sure to send Thomas some love!
