Unreal Engine 4.7 released this week, and Mike Fricker and Ray Davis joined us to discuss some of the excellent features in the build. Come find out about them all, hear about upcoming GDC news, and find out the winners of the February Unreal Engine game jam!
The Unreal Engine team is thrilled about this upcoming GDC next week, and we've got quite a lot in store. Aside from the GDC talks mentioned earlier, Epic Games will have a sponsored theater in Moscone West and an open theater in our booth where expo attendees will see demonstrations of all kinds and interact with Epic developers. All the details and more inside.
Last week, we launched Unreal Dev Grants, an avenue for individuals or teams working in and around Unreal Engine to be rewarded for their inspiring creations. Epic Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney joined the stream to discuss the program and answer questions from the community. Get the recap here.
Unreal Engine 4.7 is our biggest release yet, with the power to render huge numbers of instanced objects in large worlds, beautiful rendering of leaves and foliage, HDR texture support, in-editor animation editing, along with hundreds of optimizations and improvements.
Attending GDC? Microsoft’s DirectX team is providing the opportunity for Unreal Engine developers to test their game running on DirectX 12 at the show in their DirectX 12 Quick Start Challenge! Bring your project to the conference and have your game running on top of DirectX12, and learn how to start to further optimize its performance.
Are you ready to forge ahead with Unreal and the future of VR? Epic and Leap Motion have joined forces to create an official plugin for Unreal Engine 4. With this introductory Windows plugin, developers can quickly and easily add virtual hands to their games. Here's how to get started today!
Since Unreal Engine 4’s launch, we’ve been amazed at the groundswell of cool projects in development by the Unreal community. One thing we’ve heard many times: While development can be fueled by creativity and determination alone, finishing and releasing a commercial project often requires money.
With the Game Developers Conference just around the corner, we thought you might like to see where Epic’s developers will be presenting as part of the official GDC line-up. If you’re attending the show, we’d love for you to swing by these sessions. We look forward to seeing everyone in San Francisco soon!
GDC is just around the corner, and we’ve got a fantastic lineup of Unreal Engine 4 games available to play. Watch as Ray Davis and I highlight the selections, give updates to 4.7, and kick off the February Unreal Engine game jam.
