Yesterday Unreal announced they are offering Unreal Engine 4 for a 5% royalty fee when quarterly sales reach $3,000. This isn’t just the engine they are offering. It is sample projects, asset packs, and tutorials.

Today I am seeing the release of Unity Engine 5. So, that starts to make since why they would release a free older version. Still pretty awesome.

But...... there is a Personal Edition and a Pro Edition of Engine 5. The Personal Edition is FREE, no royalty. However, if your games sells US$100,000 then you are expected to upgrade to Pro ($75/month), which at that point should be no problem.

Quoting from the Unity 5 announcement:

Unity 5 Personal Edition

Democracy is something we believe in. It’s in the DNA of those that work at Unity. It’s one of the things that drew me to the company. It’s also one of the things that is most important to the games industry. So with that in mind, we are launching Unity 5 Personal Edition. Unity 5 Personal Edition provides all the power of Unity 5 engine and editor. To clarify — this is important — it is the same Unity 5 engine and editor as in the Pro Edition. It comes with all the features including Profiler, Occlusion Culling, Render-to-Texture, and Post-Processing Special Effects as well as all the big Unity 5 features like Physically-based Shading, Enlighten, reflection probes and much more.

Unity 5 Personal Edition is free. No royalty. Free.

Unity 5 Personal Edition is for professional developers, Indies, hobbyists and studios with revenue under $100,000 and funding under $100,000.

You can see a full comparison of the licenses here.

Download Unity 5, play with it, experiment with it, and create something beautiful and lasting.

EDIT: Changed Unreal to Unity in a couple places... I spaced it.

Call me fear mongering. But there is no such thing as free lunch. Only fair trades.
