Have you ever been to a festival and wished you could return to the awe-inspiring stages somehow? Well, that reality is getting closer. One intrepid programmer with a passion for Ultra Music Festival decided to recreate the entire festival grounds from 2014 using Unreal Engine 4. Unreal Engine 4 is one of the most cutting edge video game rendering systems in existence right now, and it will be used to create to create many video games on Xbox One and PS4.
As you can see from the video, the infamous Vortex stage has been recreated in stunning detail. In fact, the recreation is so accurate that the audio even mimics how it would sound as you move further from the stage. Now you could walk around the main stage just like a level in your favorite FPS. In addition to the mainstage the recreation also includes the Live stage and other basic landmarks of the Bayfront Park grounds. While the virtual grounds are still quite empty, the plan is to completely recreate the entire festival including everything you might find there. Check it out below and somebody tell Ultra to hire this guy ASAP!
