Hi, I just started getting into game development myself after downloading Unity. I tried it out and thought it was daunting but I'm willing to become familiar with it over time. I also know that there is the Unreal Dev Kit 4 and I was told it was easier to use (please someone confirm this to be true or false if you can).

I would like to make a first person game myself and eventually would like to make it melee based (Think Chivalry Medieval Warfare and to a lesser extent, Skyrim and Dishonored). Which engine would you prefer me to learn if I were to take on an ambitious project like this?

Of course, i would have to make something easier via the official tutorials so I can just learn the interface of both engines , the above game is something I am thinking about down the line as my skills hopefully improve.

Thanks in advance

Well, there are advantages/disadvantages to both of these engines.  Generally, most people find Unity easier to use and learn overall.  But Unreal Engine 4 has more powerful capabilities out of the box.  There are also price differences, one being with a free version, then 1500 for pro version on a single system, the other being $20 a month subscription based, which can be cancelled, stopping you from getting upgrades, then with a 20% gross on any earnings.  You would have to look up the Unity vs UE4 threads to find more differences as I'm not going to go into all of them.

Please don't start identical topics in multiple forums -- just pick the one you feel is most appropriate and post there -- a moderator will move it for you if they feel it would be better answered elsewhere.

 

I'm closing this one since the other has more replies, so please take all further discussion to the other topic.
