          The King is dead... Long Live the King... (UDK -> UE4)

          Epic was getting a lot of love before... I can only imagine the free-love orgies taking place at Epic HQ after this

          Seriously... For an awful lot of people it will be difficult to see the competition as anything other than: Why bother?... Every big player, every small studio, every Indie, anyone coming out of college, will graduate towards UE4 now. A game changing decision...

            Wow, I almost dropped my coffee twice as I read and reread the announcement again and again..
            For me this is the most epic event in game development ever and everything will change from now on.

            Although I will probably never ship a game (just tinkering around), I'm proud to have been a paying subscriber for almost a year and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. I wish you the very best and hope you will succeed. (Are there T-Shirts "Have been using UE4 as it wasn't free"?)

            Thank you so much EPIC, this is unbelievable and still completely unreal, love you guys

            And thanks to this great community too, you really rock

              The $19/m was a barrier to keep kids from making sh*t games and giving unreal a "bad name", look at how down hill unity has gone with all the little 12yr old's making sh*t quality games. Now when somebody says there game is made on unity everyone automatically thinks its gonna be a bad quality game and they become a joke! I personally had absolutely no problem with paying the $19/m and would happily start paying again if it mean't keeping all the little kids out!

              Look, i have no problem with indie devs and i especially don't have a problem with young ones either, its just the little kids on there laptops that want to make a bad clone of slender or five nights and then brag that it was made on unreal and makes unreal look like PG rated movie. Look how professional cry-engine looks because nobody can afford there license's (before there subscription based service). I could ramble for hours on the many reasons why i dislike that this engine has suddenly became free with no regard to the consequences.

              Now i'm going to just look like a troll/hater because people just want free stuff and are going to argue my comment to the ground. RIP my opinion.

              May i request one thing for the future, since the engine is free and a load of kids are going to be complaining that the engine is too complicated. PLEASE DON'T water the engine down and make a "Water Button" etc. (pun unintended)
              $19 isn't/wasn't a barrier. If you can't afford that, you've got other issues to deal with before making a game...I think this was a great move on Epic's part.

                            This is amazing. It was already fantastic value for money for those serious about building their own games but I love the fact that you're giving ordinary people like me the chance to have a look at your world-class engine and tinker about with it completely free of charge. I have no serious plans in game development but I'm definitely going to try it out and see how far I get.

                              When I was first playing around unreal1 editor back in 1998, I wouldn't believe it f somebody told me by then, after 17 years, we'd get this amazing engine for free.
                              This is cliche but this news is EPIC!!!
