Mold3D Studio also shared an awesome trailer made with Unreal.
The Unreal Engine team introduced Slay, an animated sample project rendered entirely in UE4 with Windwalker Echo, the main character of UE5 demos, as its hero.
The team also announced the character asset used to create this performance capture-based trailer are now available to download for free, and the full project will soon be released, too.
With this project Edward Quintero, CEO of Mold3D Studio, and his colleagues wanted to explore animation and virtual art department techniques aimed at film and TV content. "The project contains everything you need to create this video trailer, which was rendered entirely in Unreal Engine 4; the content is free for you to use in your own projects, too, noted the Unreal team".
Today, you can download the hero character, Windwalker Echo, for use in Unreal Engine 4.27 or Unreal Engine 5 Early Access.
