Epic Games, the creator of popular video game engine Unreal, has announced that starting today their latest revision of the engine will be offered completely free to schools and universities in a new educational program.

The new educational initiative will open up unlimited access to the Unreal Engine 4 for schools and universities, an engine that has seen substantial pickup in the industry. Those wanting to apply for access can head over to the official portal for more information.

“Nothing is stopping students from honing the skills needed to enter the range of fields using Unreal Engine technology, from entertainment software and film to visualization, healthcare simulation and military training,” said Ray Davis, general manager, Unreal Engine. “Students who know Unreal Engine technology have a huge advantage when it comes to job placement.”

That's actually pretty sweet. Pretty much the $19/month subscription deal without the fee.

I think UE4 wont have trouble holding its own.



Also, you're forgetting the tools, UE4 has a pretty damn awesome toolset, might not be as flashy as fancy lighting and post processing effects but its a pretty huge part of making a good engine. And they're working on adding global illumination to the engine as well I believe

yeah it's the great thing about UE3/4 that i've seen has helped dev teams with developing a production workflow and that's the creative poly mesh/content merging tools that just aren't there in the other realtime raytracers without signing up to some daunting commercial licensing bizniz

Also, you're forgetting the tools

That's what all engines are about now. If the tools are useless, the engine is just as useless. UE has always (always) been about providing the full package of tools and mods, including hundreds of hours of video how-to's and the likes. Epic aren't that interested in making games for profit anymore.
