Unreal Engine 4 goes free for academic use
Unreal Engine 4 is now free for academic use, including personal copies for students enrolled in accredited video game development, computer science, art, architecture, simulation, and visualization programs! All educators can now have unrestricted access to the engine simply by contacting Epic Games at unrealengine.com/education. Schools can integrate the same fully featured version of Unreal Engine 4 previously available only to developers, along with all future updates. Students will retain indefinite access to any versions of the engine they used during their coursework so they'll always have the option to take their class projects and turn them into shipping projects any time in the future.
