Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Do I lose access to my game after my Unreal Engine 4 Subscription Has Ended?

As previously stated in another post, I'm really intrigued by what Epic has to offer with Unreal Engine 4, but my one issue is how the subscription service might work. If my subscription ends, does that mean I lose access to all my work or do I just lose publishing access?

No. You can keep what you have for as long as you want. You lose the ability to receive update but we don't take away what you have.


Do I have to worry about a billing contract or penalties for cancelling my subscription? Your subscription payment automatically recurs, but you’re free to cancel at any time. There’s no penalty for cancellation.

When you cancel your subscription, you won’t receive access to future releases of Unreal Engine 4,

however your login will remain active, and you are free to continue using the versions of Unreal Engine 4 which you obtained as a subscriber under the terms of the EULA.

What services are you loosing, except for software updates, when your subscription is inactive ?

In other words, would someone have reasons not to re-enable his subscription only once every 4-5 months to get the latest updates ? What would that person lose in between subscriptions ?

I guess maybe access to the marketplace, to some source files, or some documentation ?

Thank you.

With an active subscription, you will get access to marketplace downloads, Github access to our repository, and engine updates (including general bug fixes and feature additions). Without an active subscription you will not have access to any of that until you renew.

The Wiki, forum, and documentation will still be accessible without an active subscription.
