Unreal Engine 5 powers an enchanting John Wick open-world game concept!

TeaserPlay is a renowned YouTube channel and always comes up with a fascinating concept trailer for an entity that has no official video game. In the past, this channel has presented impressive trailers for Wolverine, Black Panther, and Venom open world titles.

But recently the team of developers at TeaserPlay managed to come up with a concept trailer for none other than John Wick. It was the result of the rumors of a real game project being made by Lionsgate. Therefore, these rumors served as inspiration for TeaserPlay to create a concept clip featuring Keanu Reeves’ cinematic action avatar in a virtual environment, based on the Unreal Engine 5.

As you can see, the open world concept trailer for John Wick looks absolutely stunning to say the least. The one and a half minute clip shows Keanu’s iconic character in different settings. Moreover, he is also seen driving his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS across the deserts, fighting several henchmen.

TeaserPlay said they created John Wick’s character in the trailer using Unreal Engine 5’s MetaHuman. The latter is a framework that makes it possible to create photo-realistic digital people within a reasonable time frame. All things considered, after watching this trailer, fans will definitely want to own a real video game based on Keanu’s beloved action movie franchise.
