This Spider-Man Unreal Engine 5 Demo Looks So Realistic, And Is Free To Download

Even just a few weeks after release, Unreal Engine 5 has spawned a number of incredible fan projects as users use the state-of-the-art technology to create their dream games. The results have been amazing so far, and it makes us very excited about the future of gaming.


Recently, we shared an incredible Superman demo (which is completely free to download) made within Unreal Engine 5 and it’s quite honestly the Superman game we’ve always dreamt of. The next superhero to get the UE5 treatment happens to be Spider-Man.

In case you missed it, check out the reveal trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 below.



Admittedly, we already have the Spider-Man game of our dreams. Yes, I’m talking about Insomniac GamesMarvel’s Spider-Man, but this demo certainly demonstrates the graphical quality we’d love to see in the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

The demo was posted to YouTube by dwr, but was in fact made by user Menterial. The demo adapts The Matrix Awakens: The Unreal Engine 5 Experience - using the same city, whilst adding in Spider-Man and his swinging mechanics.

As with similar demos, creator Menterial has focused largely on the demo’s graphics alone, as animations remain slightly clanky. That being said, the graphics alone are enough to marvel at (pun intended). Viewers took to the video’s comment section to share their own awe.


Evan Wheeler commented, “This game really makes you /feel/ like Spiderman,” whilst Adi Hakami added, “Man, can you imagine Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 with this graphics. I really hope Insomniac push the graphics to the next level.” KillerTacos echoed that sentiment by saying, “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has so much potential.”

If you fancy swinging your way through the demo, you can download Spidey’s Unreal Engine 5 outing for free. It could tide you over nicely until Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 hits next year.
