A new Unreal Engine 5 Spider-Man tech demo has surfaced, and you’ll see the web-slinger exploring New York City like never before. This is not footage from an upcoming game, although the character is inspired by Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man model, but a fan-made demo, complete with open-world exploration. Aside from the beautiful city render, you may notice a few graphical glitches as well as framerate drops.
It was created by a developer who goes by “dwr” online and utilizes Epic Games’ Matrix Awakens city environment for its assets, while the Spider-Man model, along with its animations, are from Lewis Fiford’s Unreal Engine 4 fan project. For those interested in running the tech demo, it requires a very powerful system to run smoothly as it is quite resource intensive to say the least. This is definitely as cool as the Tokyo 2020 Unreal Engine studio that the BBC used.

The project is more of a coding exercise than a finished product and as such is not particularly polished and does have some bugs. That said it does have some cool features and interesting systems which I hope will be of use as an educational tool or project basis for those wanting to learn about game design in UE4,” said its creator.
