Free for All? Unreal!
So have you heard the rumour? Okay, actually this one isn't a rumour at all. If you're a game developer or if you've been interested in the engine and its capabilities, you have a chance to get it for free. No lie. Whether you're learning it or using it for commercial products, Unreal Engine 4 is all yours for free.
The only catch is that Epic Games gets 5% royalty of what you make – which actually sounds pretty fair. Sure, 5% can really stack up if you're aiming to play the numbers game, but really, it's a small price to pay for something as cool as this. You will have to sign up to download the programme, but that's not a big deal, right?
Epic Games is planning on having a keynote speech March 4th at 9:30AM PST. If you want to know more about the speech or Unreal Engine 4 itself, you can check it out on the main home page. I'm actually really excited about this – enough to try it out myself!
