    Goodbye Unity. Sorry but this is a better engine and Epic isn’t run by some
    ex-EA douchetard.

    This is pretty huge I hope to see many great things from devs across the
    world and of course from Epic

    The Unreal 4 engine is now free for developers and animators to use. Nice!

  10. Josh Boykin says:

    This is generous. Really generous. I’m thankful to Epic. Though I do hope
    they can make their money back. Though I know they will. The Unreal Engine
    is widely used by AAA studios, indies, MMMOs etc.

    HALLELUJAH!!! I guess I can forgive them for taking UDK out to the back
    with a shotgun now. UE4 is FREE! I can live with 5% royalty for commercial
    projects, better than what UDK had (15% – 20% royalty).

    All that still remains however is user-mod support but since UE4 is free
    that means I can actually work around adding mod support to my game.

  15. Sylvia Vixen says:

    The last barrier of entry has been removed. UE4 is free for anyone, with a
    5% royalty for released games. I will be doing my best to move Vixen Games
    forward with this engine. Expect a very simple game from me, alone, as
    practice with this engine! =D
