Unreal Engine 4 - Now Free.

Hi,
Thought some of you may be interested to know this:

https://www.unrealengine.com/blog/ue4-is-free

Now would be a good time to take a good, sharp pointy stick and jab it towards anyone still working on Thievery 2 devs. .

Chief.

2 days later and I still haven't got enough time to plunge deep inside.

Yet, for those still on the fence here's what the thing is about.

You download a "Epic Games Launcher" that once installed gives you the option to install and run 3 diferent programs:
- Unreal Engine 4 (essentially the shinny brand new UDK, now with Unreal 4 flavour)
- Unreal Tournament (still in pre-alpha but you can shoot bots in offline mode already, and yes it is indeed free)
- Unreal Tournament Editor

Im assuming the new "UED" behaves more or less like UDK but tailored to UT's innards.

I will try to explore some of it in the upcoming days, but so far it seems to be a lot like UDK in the sense that it relies a lot on external assets having to be created first.

Tbh I would distance mentioning any link between UE4 and UE3's UDK because of how overhauled the whole system is now.

I was a subscriber from when UE4 was first announced publically until they went free and it's such a vast r/evolution for the engine that anyone who has yet to use it is in for a shock (and treat)
