Unreal Engine 3 for Free
Today, nVidia and Epic released a free version of the Unreal Development Kit, that allows one to use it as long as the game doesn’t create any revenue. This is very exciting for everyone who’s interested in Game Engines and also very interesting for people who want to evaluate engines before they buy one for hard cash. Another interesting thought that comes to my mind is that this may be a direct answer to other engine developers like Unity or Emergent, which provide free and academic licenses of their products.
Oh and by the way – you can get the UDK here.
