Unreal Engine 4 Free for Students Through Github

By Ray Davis

Back in August we made Unreal Engine 4 free for academic use and the response has been overwhelming. Universities and schools around the world are now integrating Unreal Engine 4 into their curriculum and their classrooms. We’re humbled by the opportunity to help a new generation of game developers gain the skills that are vital to successful game development. To reduce friction even further, we're offering a new way for students to get Unreal Engine 4!

Starting today, through a collaboration with GitHub and their newly revamped Student Developer Pack, we’re able to give students direct access to Unreal Engine 4 for free! All that’s necessary is to sign up with your student information at GitHub’s site and we will grant you a free subscription to Unreal Engine 4 to use in all of your academic endeavors. So if you’re a student, go sign up today and download the tools, check out our learning resources, and show the community what you’re creating in our forums!
