Whats the difference between SteamCore and SteamCore PRO?
  • SteamCore PRO features it's own Online Subsystem and is not locked to the Online Subsystem included with Unreal Engine, this allows for more customizability and flexibility without having to modify engine source code
  • PRO includes the latest Steamworks SDK version. (Currently 1.57)
  • PRO sessions are not region locked
  • Invite friends to your game/multiplayer sessions with PRO
  • Dedicated Server and Listen Server Authentication/Game ownership verification
  • PRO: Connect to dedicated servers via IP and listen servers via P2P relay network using the same configuration, no need for different game configurations.
  • PRO version is the only version that will be recieving new feature updates.
  • The regular SteamCore was released many years ago and is considered feature complete. It will no longer be receiving new feature updates, only critical engine updates and bug fixes.




Supported Engine Versions
  • Epic does not allow plugin updates for older engine versions, this means only the 3 latest engine versions are supported. Older engine versions will have an older and outdated version of the plugin.
  • If you need support for older engine versions you can purchase the plugin on Gumroad.com.
  • It's also possible to obtain Source Control access to plugin source code through Gumroad.
