YouTuber CryZENx has released a video of Ocarina of Time’s Hyrule Field recreated using the Unreal Engine 4 game engine, and I gotta say, it looks fantastic! The video shows Link running around a much more realistic Hyrule Field, including views of Lon Lon Ranch, Death Mountain, and the gates to Castle Town. Everything from the grass, clouds (especially during sunset), and to Link himself looks incredibly detailed compared to the N64 and 3DS versions we’re used to. Link also shows off some new acrobatics, as he is not limited to simply rolling along the ground.
This video is just one in a series CryZENx is working on. Others released so far include Lon Lon Ranch, Gerudo Valley, Zora’s Domain, and the Temple of Time. The best part is, these are more than just videos. The description for each includes a link to download playable versions of these demos. Here’s hoping CryZENx keeps up the good work!
