How do I download UE 5.5?

JSFILMZ is suing 5.5 in this video: and I noticed comments were saying you can get it on the github but all I’m seeing is 5.4.2:

How do I get 5.5? Thanks

at my understanding whenever new version is out, the release branch is being versioning up so now release is 5.5, be sure you know what ur doing.

The ue5-main branch gets all the latest updates as they are being developed.

So I’m confused. 5.5 is avaliable though? Is this the page with the instructions I should be following? Downloading Unreal Engine Source Code | Unreal Engine 5.4 Documentation | Epic Developer Community

My understanding is that UE5-main branch is 5.5, the latest release branch was 5.4.2. Basically the main branch gets all the latest updates, (it was updated 3 hours ago as I’m writing this.)

You need to follow the the documents to download the engine’s Source Code, then Build the engine using Visual Studio*

*You’re gonna need 200 - 300+ GB storage space to build the engine and it’ll take around 1 - 4+ hours to build depending on the number of CPU cores and the amount of RAM you have.

Okay seems simple enough. NOT. Do you have anything specifically on doing this or how to? Thanks for the replies
