    I was a little confused at first, but then it seemed to be true after all! Thank you big time!

    On the welcome site it still states its 19$/m, might want to update that to prevent missing out on newcomers trying the engine for free.

    I am sure there will come trolls who try to anger Epic, but just ignore them and think about future that there are more good things coming. It was good idea to create marketplace for UT4+UE4 stuff because this is futuristic way to earn money by content creators and by Epic. 5% of sales is very generous and Epic is worth everything. New era is beginning as of 2015.

    I already suggested UE4 to local university if they need something to make in 3D.

    Final word is if you do not like UE4+Epic philosophy then there are lot of engines in world.

    When Tim Sweeney posted video then in beginning i listened and when i watched second time it was like sound of prophets talking from sky that UE4 is free.

    Thank you EPIC again and i wish best for every Epic staff.
    This is gonna sound like a low blow but it's almost like they had a change of heart after CliffyB left. Not meant to sound insulting as Epic without CliffyB is different for sure, but in a very good way.

    That's not to say CliffyB was bad, he had great ideas.

    Alright no problem

    I do intend to spend it on Your market place so you guys get my money either way

    In the original post, this was mentioned:

    In going free, we’ll be issuing a pro-rated refund to current subscribers for their most recent month’s payment. And, everyone who has ever paid for a UE4 subscription will receive a $30 credit that can be spent in the Unreal Engine Marketplace.

    In regards to the marketplace credit, I do not believe these are transferable. However, you can contact accounts@unrealengine.com for further information.

    a quick question regarding subscriptions..

    I kinda talked my company into getting a UE4 subscription and they literally bought it like a day before it went free. I mean it was only $19 so obviously it's not a biggie at all, however, it is a little awkward lol.
    also they don't really have any need for a $30 marketplace voucher. are they transferable?
    do you guys have anything planned for people who bought it a couple of days before you decided to offer it for free? just curious.

    thank you!

    They said that they would issue a refund for the last payment so all good

    Tim!....That's...totally EPIC!. The move demonstrates LOVE to the community and to all starving developers trying to make something Unreal or any imaginable vision in question.
    Thanks Tim and Epic TEAM.

    What about codes (from game jam) which I didn't redeem? Will you give other prize?
    I'm also interested in the use for the codes, any new info on this?

    I have had my eye on UE for years now. It's amazing how far everything has come in UE4.

    Even though I fully agree that the 19 dollars-a-month was affordable, for a game design hobbyist like myself, I wanted to be able to learn on my free time, but the commitment to a monthly payment kept me from doing so. To students, or simply, any young kid with a computer who wants to learn, free access means everything.

    I look forward to UE4's future.

    Thank you everyone at Epic!
