Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer Remade In Unreal Engine 4 Is Breathtaking – SW

With the Star Wars celebration on the horizon, it’s understandable why so many fans have their minds in a galaxy far, far away. One in particular decided to put a modern spin on a 20-year old adventure, bringing pod-racing into this generation with the help of Unreal Engine 4.

The modder in question goes by Robjin and they created an amazing demo for the Unreal Engine 4 version for Star Wars fans to enjoy. Though there are a few optimization issues, something that the modder was very clear on, it definitely still runs and when it’s going smoothly — it looks beyond stunning.

Missed out on the original Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer? Here’s what you need to know:

“Take the controls as Anakin Skywalker, or any one of over 21 Podracers, and feel the full-force blast of two massive jet engines at simulated speeds of up to 600 mph. Rein in a turbine-driven chariot through 8 spectacular worlds. Negotiate through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, ant-gravity tunnels and much more in a pulse-punding, do-or-die fight to the finish where anyone will do anything to cross the finish line. How far will you go?”

• Relive all the thrill and excitement of the Podracer sequence from STAR WARS: Episode I.
• Hang on tight – with afterburners on, Podracers max out at a simulated 600 mph!
