Become a professional game developer
Unreal Engine has been awarded by Guinness World Records as "the most successful video game engine". If you’re looking to build complex games with Unreal Engine, this Learning Path is for you. This Path will give you a brief overview of the basics and move quickly to explore the amazing capabilities of Unreal Engine. The design complexity of each game increases gradually to give you a complete overview of Unreal Engine 4 and its amazing features. You will learn to implement advanced shading techniques, create stunning graphics, leverage the rendering power of Unreal Engine to get the best out of it.
Then, you’ll learn to implement an RTS-style free roaming camera from scratch. From there, you’ll move on to selecting Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) through mouse input, and using basic Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Pathfinding to have selected NPCs move around a level. Then, you will add a second unit to the game, make a unit attack, create destructible environments, and finally bring everything together with an RTS-style user interface using Unreal Motion Graphics (UMG).
