Unreal Engine 4.16 Preview 1 Now Available

By Chance Ivey

We’re nearing the next release of Unreal Engine 4, and 4.16 is packed full of updates and features that are nearly ready for developers everywhere to get their hands on. Today, the first Preview release of 4.16 is available for download so early adopters can test new features such as Volumetric Fog, FFT Convolution Bloom and numerous Animation and Physics additions.

To get Unreal Engine 4.16 Preview 1, head to the Library section on the launcher, select “Add Versions” and choose Unreal Engine 4.16 Preview 1.


You can get an idea of what’s in this release by checking out the forum thread from Stephen Ellis. Remember, Preview releases are still very early glimpses into upcoming features and are not yet ready for prime time. We strongly recommend waiting until the full release before upgrading your projects to this version of the engine.

Happy development!
