Castles are simply part of a good fantasy game. No wonder we see so many magnificent virtual fortresses: think Skyhold from Dragon Age: Inquisition, Hogwarts from Hogwarts Legacy or Castle Boletaria from Demon’s Souls.
We have one in the Unreal Engine 5 Marketplace heavily impressive castle sightedwhich outshines almost all other play castles with its details. Now someone just needs to build a game around it!
Here you can see the gigantic fortress including the castle courtyard from the outside and inside. In addition, there are ominous sounds on the ears:

What is behind the chic UE5 project?
The castle was created by Artur Tschukes, a Tokyo-based environmental artist who specializes in 3D models. The game art studio Leartes Studios was also involved in the project, which was first started in Unreal Engine 4 and then ported to Unreal Engine 5.
For example, the studio has provided assets for cinematic trailers for Call of Duty: Warzone, HyperScape, and Dying Light 2: Stay Human, according to the portfolio. On the official Youtube channel you will find many more UE5 projects.
For the castle 143 unique meshes and 163 textures usedalso uses Lumen and Nanite. Unfortunately, the virtual environment cannot yet be explored by yourself, but the creators are already working on a demo.
If you happen to be working on Bloodborne 2 and are still looking for a spectacular level environment, you can purchase the castle from the UE5 Marketplace for $120. It should be optimized for games, i.e. not require too many resources despite the incredible data density. According to the description, it can also be combined with all platforms (how could a switch handle it?).
How do you like the gothic fantasy castle? What kind of game would you like to see her in – Soulslike, RPG, MMO or maybe even a horror game? The statues and the nocturnal mood are quite a bit spooky, so a few ghosts and demons would also fit – right?! Share your ideas with us in the comments.
