Experimental Features

Content Hot-Reloading

Significantly improved support for reloading packages from disk on the fly. All in-editor source control operations are more stable, and a "Reload" option is now available to force asset reloads from disk.

UE4 can now output to High Dynamic Range displays taking advantage of higher contrast and wider color gamut displays.
