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"

Is the Community Allowed to create Unreal Tournament (Community Edition)?

A few of the community are wondering if it's alright to create a non-profit, not making any money at all version of Unreal Tournament using Unreal Engine 4 (Much like Timesplitters Rewind). It would be a community project that allows everyone to work together to create an Unreal Tournament and would be stated that it is not developed or produced by Epic in anyway. The community want a new Unreal Tournament and a few of us over on the forums have been talking about bringing that to life. Would that be allowed? We wouldn't sell the project, we wouldn't place ads or anything. It would be a completely free, no profit what so ever experience created by members of the Unreal Engine 4 community. Would Epic be alright with this?

Bump in hopes that an Epic guy/ gal gets a chance to look this over.

We appreciate your interest in both Unreal Tournament and UE4, but unfortunately we cannot authorize a community driven Unreal Tournament game. But if you want to make a spiritual successor that doesn't use the trademarks or copyrighted content (like characters), definitely go for it.
