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.

      Who We Are
      We are Forged Interactive, a small team of like-minded game developers with the sole purpose of making games we love! Currently, we're progressing very quickly with our first project and there are plenty of opportunities and work for new interested programmers. With this project, our development platform is Unity 5.5.2 and C# as our behavioral language. Since this project is our first release, the game itself is a smaller project though progress is moving quickly. We are looking to finalize the current project and get started on future projects in the near future and are expanding our team to do so.
       
      Who We Are Looking For:
      Programmer Level Designer  
      About the Game
      Ours is the tale of two siblings, thrown into a world of chaos. Living in the shadow of their parents' heroic deeds and their Uncle's colorful military career, Finn and Atia are about to become the next force to shape our world. How will you rise through the ranks of Hereilla and what will be your legacy? Once defeated your enemies turn coat and join you in your adventures. Players can enjoy a range of troops and abilities based on their gameplay style which become more important as maps introduce more challenging terrain, enemies and bosses. Strong orc knights, dangerous shamans, and even a dragon are out on the prowl. Knowing when to fight and when to run, and how to manage your army is essential. Your actions alone decide the fate of this world.
       
      Previous Work by Team
      Although we are working towards our first game as Forged Interactive, our team members themselves have worked on titles including and not limited to:
      Final Fantasy Kingsglaive FIFA 2017 Xcom 2 Civilization  
      What do we expect?
      Reference work or portfolio. Examples what have you already done and what projects you have worked on academic or otherwise. The ability to commit to the project on a regular basis. If you are going on a two-week trip, we don't mind, but it would be good if you could commit 10+ hours to the project each week. Willingness to work with a royalty based compensation model, you will be paid when the game launches. Openness to learning new tools and techniques
       
      What can we offer?
