“I’m amazed at how much content this course contains and how effective it is at instilling the concepts. So far it has certainly exceeded my expectations of an online coding course. Highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to learn how to begin coding in C++. Worth every penny.”

– Jordan Heaton

This “critically-acclaimed” and “insanely successful” Unreal Engine course was created in collaboration with Epic Games.

Learn how to create and mod video games using Unreal Engine 4, even if you’re a complete beginner. Unreal is a free-to-use game development engine used by AAA studios and indie developers worldwide. It can be complex beast to get into, but we break it down step-by-step

Already know Unreal and want to learn VR or Multiplayer? Check out our other Unreal courses, just look for the green leaf for our other world-class Unreal courses.

We start super simple so you need no prior experience of Unreal or coding! With our online tutorials, you’ll be amazed what you can achieve. We believe project-based learning is the best way to learn Unreal Engine.

Benefit from our world-class support from both other students, and the instructors who are on the forums regularly. Go on to build several games including a tank game, and a First Person Shooter.

You will have access to a course forum where you can discuss topics on a course-wide basis, or down to the individual video. Our thriving discussion forum will help you learn and share ideas with other students.

You will learn C++, the powerful industry standard language from scratch. By the end of the course you’ll be very confident in the basics of coding and game development, and hungry to learn more.

“Any serious game programmer needs to know C++”Jason Gregory, Lead Programmer at Naughty Dog (creators of Uncharted & The Last of Us)

Anyone who wants to learn to create games: Unreal Engine is a fantastic platform which enables you to make AAA-quality games. Furthermore these games can be created for Windows, consoles, MacOS, iOS, Android and Web from a single source!

If you’re a complete beginner, we’ll teach you all the coding and game design principles you’ll need. If you’re an artist, we’ll teach you to bring your assets to life. If you’re a coder, we’ll teach you game design principles.

What this course DOESN’T cover…

Whereas this course is already huge, we can’t possibly cover everything in that time. Here are some things we will not be covering…

Team collaboration topics.
Editor plugins or modifications.
Physics engine modification.
Multiplayer features.

Note: access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and 3D models, as well as connect with other students.

Start to learn Unreal C++ now, you won’t be disappointed!

“Amazing and very well done. Especially for beginner / mid level skilled. Good for both C++ and Unreal as a starting point.”

– Alessandro Santarini
