Unreal Engine 4 Source Code "For All"

During this week's Game Developers Conference, Epic Games announced that the Unreal Engine 4 source code is now "available for all" for a monthly fee of only $19.00. The Unreal Engine 4 has been used by many game companies including Microsoft, Sony, Square Enix, Lionhead.

“This is our complete engine, with everything Epic provides to leading game developers, priced accessibly for teams of all sizes, budgets and aspirations,” said Tim Sweeney, founder of Epic Games.

With the release of UE4, Epic is moving to a community-centric model built around forums, a Wiki and AnswerHub Q&A, with GitHub hosting the complete C++ source so developers can utilize its robust collaboration functionality for experimentation and sharing.

“This is smart. It's an enlightened way for developers to create great games and easily bring them to Steam,” said Gabe Newell of Valve.

“Now is a great time to be an independent developer,” said Sweeney. “There are amazing platforms and distribution opportunities available, and with this release we hope the Unreal Engine can help developers build cool new things.”
