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"

Yes, but not for free. Epic will take a 5% cut.

For legal information, visit: https://www.unrealengine.com/faq#legal and https://www.unrealengine.com/release where you can find more information and e-mail addresses you can ask for more information.

Allar is correct about the way of going about publishing and letting us know. One thing to note however is the 5% royalty is only owed after the first $3,000 per business quarter. So you can earn up to $3,000 without paying royalty fees on it, then the money you make past that will require a royalty be paid from that.

You do not have to pay if your app does not make revenue.

https://www.unrealengine.com/release Here is all the information you need. A step by step guideline.

Once you send the information. Epic will provide payment instructions.

Most probable that you have to send it them by yourself. A system that detects your revenue transered to your bank account made by your ue4 game is not present. But you are due to have a legit administration. (Like any other organisation)

Hi. I also have this sort of question but probably not worth to make a new question on top of it. If my game uses other assets, from the marketplace (like the free Epic games materials for example), can I publish my game? And if I can, what do I need to do to publish it? Thanks and have a good day! :D

Yes, you are allowed to release a game to the public that uses Marketplace assets under the terms of the EULA.

When you are ready to publish the game, please follow the steps outlined on https://www.unrealengine.com/release.
