Need for Speed Most Wanted Remake in Unreal Engine 5

Need for Speed Most Wanted Fan Remake in Unreal Engine 5 looks better than ever

In August 2023, we informed you about a fan remake of Need for Speed Most Wanted in Unreal Engine 5. And a few days ago, NostalgiaNexus released a brand new gameplay video from it, showcasing its latest version.

This latest version of this remake features 8K textures for the roads, as well as numerous upscaled textures from the original game. Moreover, it now has the original TVR Cerbera sound for the BMW M3 GTR.

For those unaware, NostalgiaNexus has ported the map from Need for Speed: Most Wanted in Unreal Engine 5. And, contrary to other fan remakes, this isn’t just a map showcase. Instead, this project features a driveable car. As such, it can give us a better idea of what a faithful remaster could look like in a modern-day engine.

As its creator has already stated, this Need for Speed Most Wanted Remaster in Unreal Engine 5 uses the Chaos Vehicle System and FMOD for engine sounds. It also appears to be taking advantage of Lumen, though we did spot some lighting glitches here and there.

Overall, this feels like a proper remaster of this NFS game. Do note that this project aims to be a faithful remaster of Most Wanted, and not a full-on remake. So, with that in mind, it really does look great.

Speaking of Unreal Engine 5, I also suggest taking a look at these other fan remakes. For instance, we have these faithful remasters of Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3. Then we have this amazing fan remake of STALKER. Let’s also not forget this Grand Theft Auto 6 fan concept in UE5. There is also this amazing full-on remake video for Final Fantasy 9. And lastly, you can find fan remakes of Death Stranding, Fallout 4ARK: Survival AscendedFallout 4Resident Evil’s Spencer Mansion, and Skyrim’s Whiterun. All of them are cool, so make sure to watch them.
