June 22, 2021
Are you ready to test out even more features coming to Unreal Engine? Then wait no more—Unreal Engine 4.27 is now available in Preview!

Explore exciting new workflows for virtual production and in-camera VFX that deliver whole new levels of creative freedom to filmmakers. Get your hands on updates to architectural and manufacturing pipelines such as Movie Render Queue improvements, OpenXR support, and enhanced Datasmith workflows. Then, share all of your progress with anyone, anywhere via the cloud with production-ready Pixel Streaming. And for game developers looking to optimize data compression and video encoding, Oodle and Bink are now built in!

Please remember, Previews provide a first look at upcoming features, but are not ready to use in production just yet. We recommend using copies of your projects to experiment with the Previews, and migrating them once the final Unreal Engine 4.27 release is available.

Check out a complete list of updates included in each Preview in the Unreal Engine 4.27 Preview forum topic; we invite you to share your feedback there.

Download the latest Unreal Engine 4.27 Preview from the Epic Games launcher to get started. You can also access the source code on GitHub—make sure you're logged into your GitHub account first, and that it's connected to your Epic account.
