Unreal Engine 3 now FREE!!
« on: November 05, 2009, 16:51 »

If you have not heard already, EPIC has released unreal Engine 3 (and licencing options) today.

Here is one link to it:  http://www.shacknews.com/oneart61138 icle.x/


You can even create commercial for sale games with this $99.00 for a royalty licence, in which epic gets some of your profits or $2500.00 for you to buya FULL LICENCE! Folks, this thing used to be over a half a million dollars for the priveledge. (I can only assume that current UE3 licencees who paid the big bucks get UE4 for free or something but thats pure speculation.

I can only hope that these tools can help Gildor and who knows..maybe he can sell it commercially and fully licenced!!

These tools will not help me with umodel development. But it may be very useful for me to learn UE deeper.
Of course, I'll support UDK with umodel - like I did with UE2Runtime.

This is truly awesome and important to support, as UT3,Mirrors Edge,GOW was the only other way of publishing data. It was not an elegant solution. Now with the UDK we can acually publish things, like movies. This creates greater value and relevance to Umodel.

What is UDK, like some other format for games or just from that program that UT3 released? Can't really understand how umodel will effect with UDK.
