No free UDK

Why does the new Unreal Engine 4 costs money now?

Mike.

because now you get the full license version (meaning including full sourcecode of the engine and additional things you would not have with UDK).
If you don’t like paying for it, you are free to continue to use UDK (UE3), as before.

Hi Bytterman,

If you would like, you can make a one-time purchase for $19 and then cancel your subscription to give it a try. You do not have to pay the subscription to use the engine, just to get the initial download, updates and additional content.

Have a great day!
Adam

Is the UDK Februari 2014 release the same as UE4?

No, UDK is unreal engine 3.
