Fan favorites Technical Director Mike Fricker and General Manager Ray Davis returned to tell us about many of the exciting new additions to version 4.7 which released earlier this week. On top of that, the team discussed some of the upcoming plans for GDC, though you can certainly expect even more to roll out in the future!
Version 4.7 had a little longer of a development cycle than previous releases, and you’ll see why! It’s our biggest release to date, and we’re stoked to deliver it you this week. The Preview process allowed us to identify a ton more bugs before the full release, and we appreciate your patience during this process. Check out the release notes here. We also expect an updated release to hit sometime soon, so stay tuned!
The February #ue4jam had an excellent set of 40 submissions, all of which you can download here! Here are the best games from this month’s jam:
