Unreal Engine Academy Preview Launched

Epic Games have just launched a preview of their upcoming Unreal Engine Academy.  This is a one stop location for Unreal Engine courses in video format which is completely free, although it requires you to log in with your Epic credentials.  The Unreal Academy will track your current progress through a course and even has motivational achievements that can be attained.  Currently the pickings are fairly slim, with 3 official courses and just over a dozen other courses available.  The new portal will most likely replace the existing Unreal Academy, with much of the content being shared.

This move comes in response to a similar portal launched by Unity just last week, Unity Learn.  It offers very similar content, although Unity Learn also offers some text based tutorials in addition to video.

Regardless to which game engine you use, never has it been easier to get access to excellent courses to get you up and running.  Check out the new Unreal Engine Academy in action in the video below.
