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"

What happens when I cancel my subscription?

If I buy UE4, and right after that cancel subscription will I still be able to download updates, use marketplace etc. for a month?

Hey Ogniok,

Your $19 grants you access to updates and new marketplace assets for a month. Cancelling your subscription stops future payments but does not invalidate your access for the time you've already paid.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for a quick response. That's exactly what I needed to know. :D

I would add that your current build continues to work forever, and you can launch products using that build for as long as you like.

Hi there,

So let me see if I got this right: If I subscribe to UE4 and at a certain point I cancel the subscription, I can still use it and I can produce games (and pay the royalties). The only thing I loose is the updates and the access to the market place.

If that is true, does that mean I can subscribe only for a month in order to use and learn UE4 and eventaully, when I'm confindent that I can do something with it, re-activate my subscription?

That would be fine

Have the re-activation any additional cost?

yeah, it's true.

There's no extra fee for renewing a subscription; it just costs the normal amount for a subscription.
