Unreal Engine Goes Free For All

Posted Mar 02, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Unreal Engine Goes Free For All

Epic has announced that the Unreal Engine will now be available free to all developers. Previously, use of the Unreal Engine cost developers $19.00 per month and a 5% royalty above $3000 per month. Epic is still asking developers to contribute 5%, though the engine itself remains free and will include all tools and future updates.

"Our goal is to give you absolutely everything, so that you can do anything and be in control of your schedule and your destiny. Whatever you require to build and ship your game, you can find it in UE4, source it in the Marketplace, or build it yourself - and then share it with others. The state of Unreal is strong, and we've realized that as we take away barriers, more people are able to fulfill their creative visions and shape the future of the medium we love. That's why we're taking away the last barrier to entry, and going free."
