This Unreal Engine 5 Portal Fan-Remake Will Make You Wish for Portal 3
It’s been a long time since the launch of Portal 2, but fans still hope to see the next mainline entry from the franchise. Although Valve just doesn’t seem interested enough in returning to this franchise anymore, a Portal remake could still be somewhere in the company’s plans!
Unlike some other companies that usually stop modders from creating remakes or remasters of their IPs, Valve is mostly kind towards modders and supports them when they really have something worthy of release. The best example of this is Black Mesa, an unofficial remake of the Half-Life franchise that was released on Steam.

Now, an environment artist has recently recreated the first level of Portal in Unreal Engine 5 with modernized visuals, high-resolution textures, and Ray-Tracing, which could be a good signal for passionate modders that how great a remake of Portal would look like in UE5.
Portal Remake in Unreal Engine 5 Looks Incredible, But It Won’t Be Released!
While Alfred Beddow has done an incredible job recreating Portal in Unreal Engine 5 with 8K textures, it is not going to be a full project, which means there wouldn’t be a playable version of it.
This Portal remake is only a demo to show what Unreal Engine 5 is capable of as well as the quality of the artist’s work in this brand new engine from Epic Games.
That being said, this could already become a great idea for modders and developers to really work on a remake of the Portal franchise in a modern-day engine like Unreal Engine 5.
Such a project would definitely find a huge community of supporters if Valve would allow it to become a commercial launch in the future.
