How can I set a new character mesh to the 3rd person game character?

There is a nice tutorial on YouTube by MetalGameStudios. It should be just what you need.

Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial: Custom Character


For instance like in the latest screenshot posted on where they have the Samaritan character as the default playable guy. I’ve looked around for this info but can’t find it.

Could someone either point me to a place that shows how to do this in UE4 or tell me how? I know setting up the character itself for UE4 is pretty in depth, but what about if I just want to plop in that already made character instead of the blue guy?
