Gaming News:Unreal Engine 4 Available for Everyone

Today, Epic Games announced that they would be instituting a much more reasonable pricing model for developers to license Unreal Engine 4.

 

Previously developers would have to pay an arm and possibly a leg or two in order to access an Unreal Engine. Luckily, with the rising costs of game development becoming apparent to everyone, Epic Games decided to lower the entry cost for video game creators looking to start out with top notch software. Beginning today, developers may license Unreal Engine 4 for 5% of whatever money they make from their product as well as $19 per month per Unreal Engine 4 user. This is a huge boon for smaller indie devs that couldn't afford the high, flat cost of creating a game using Unreal Engine 3.

 

What does this mean for gamers? We can look forward to more visually impressive from smaller studios who will be free to pursue their creative visions and more features in games from larger studios that don't have to spend quite as much time focusing on the visual aspects of their blockbusters.

 

 

For any fledgling game developers out there, now seems to be a great time to get into the trenches and start cranking out games.
