Where to get your free copy of Unreal Engine 4

In this lecture you will learn where and how to get your very own copy of Unreal Engine 4.23 at no charge! This amazing program used to cost over $10,000 a few short years ago, and then Epic Games decided to make it available to both professionals and newcomers alike free of charge! 

If you make a game with Unreal Engine 4 and publish it you will only pay 5% royalties on your game if you make $3,000 or more in sales in a quarter. A very generous arrangement!

If you use Unreal Engine 4 to make cinematics, tv commercials, 3d animation, feature films and product development there are NO ROYALTIES whatsoever! Epic Games is a very generous company and fully supports developers, artists and filmmakers. 

If you are new to Unreal Engine, you are in for a treat!
