Unreal 4 Engine is free

Unreal Engine 4 is now available to everyone for free, and all future updates will be free! You can download the engine and use it for everything from game development, education, architecture, and visualization to VR, film and animation. When you ship a game or application, you pay a 5% royalty on gross revenue after the first $3,000 per product, per quarter. It’s a simple arrangement in which we succeed only when you succeed.


I still want the Elysian Shadows Toolkit but I may be bias.

5% royalty is not "free". I think it's a great business move, but it's definitely not charity.

Either way, it's great to have another professional tool available for education and hobbyists alike.

The source code, which was part of the subscription, is now free as well.
