Unreal 4 now free for academic use
Unreal engine version 4 since its release this past spring has carried a small monthly price tag; this was waived the other day for the purposes of academic use.
Taken directly from an official Epic Games blog the company mentions; "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 us at unrealengine.com/education."
You can read more about this here, this is indeed a very welcome move and bound to give the popular engine an even bigger boost and bigger user base.
