It's Episode I: Racer, Remade In Unreal Engine 4

A fan of both Star Wars and the finest sci-fi racing game this side of Wipeout has gone and got some of Star Wars Episode 1: Racer running in Unreal Engine 4, bringing the 1999 game well and truly into the 21st century.

It was made by CG artist Rob Jin, and is the result of around 10 months of work. What’s available now is more of a demo than a game—you can only race as Anakin on one map—but that’s still enough to push pretty much every racing game button I have.

Jin even made this trailer to go with the project:

But if you want to see it in action, here’s some gameplay:

As of yesterday the demo was free to download and play, but after YouTuber Bluedrake42 shot some footage of it the link got slammed and is no longer available.

    They just really need to make a new one of these. With an unlockable Storm Trooper on speeder bike.


    Too bad Disney and EA dont give a crap about Star Wars games.

    Apeiron had the problem of showing their game too early and it looks like this has as well.

    Especially remakes. You're asking to be shut down by the big corporations.
