New STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 project available for download

Remember the unofficial port of STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 we shared a while back? Well, from the looks of it, there is another similar project. Developed by RedProjects, this new STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 project looks ambitious, and there is a build that you can download right now.

This new UE5 project will support the entire STALKER trilogy. As such, once it’s complete, you’ll be able to play Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat.

It’s also worth noting that this isn’t a simple port of STALKER in Unreal Engine 5. Instead, RedProjects describes it as a hybrid. All internal processes, NPC behavior logic, shooting, quests, and A-Life are from the original X-Ray engine. However, the graphical part has been replaced with Unreal Engine 5.

In this public release of this project, the entire Zone from Shadow of Chernobyl is fully functional. The level logic, quests, firefights, and A-Life simulation work flawlessly. However, there are some minor bugs. For example, due to an unfinished attachment system, the flashlight remains in Sidorovich’s bunker and does not follow the player. And while the weapons and the player’s hands are not displayed, shooting and interaction are fully functional.

You can download this new STALKER in Unreal Engine 5 project from here. I’ve also included below some screenshots from it. These screenshots will give you an idea of what you can expect from it. As this project uses the default game assets, you should not expect miracles. Nevertheless, you’ll immediately notice the more advanced lighting system, courtesy of UE5.

In short, while this project does not look as impressive as this fan remake of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in Unreal Engine 5, it appears to be better than its RTX Remix.
