The headline seems to have two seemingly unrelated topics clashing with each other for dominance, but it’s actually all part of the same thing. Epic’s Unreal University tour will hit Montreal this November, and for Unreal Engine enthusiast you can win a free GeForce 460 just by commenting on Epic’s Facebook page about what you like about the Unreal Engine.
The Unreal University is the “first of its kind” in Canada, so says the press release, and gamers and game developers in training can learn a thing or two about the UE3 and the UDK (Unreal Development Kit) from two veteran instructors, Markus Arvidsson and James Tan.
The instructional will walk newbie (and seasoned) developers through the series of features and functions of both the UDK and the UE3, which lays down the groundwork for using the powerful, next-generation game engine technology.
If you’re worried about costs, don’t. The Unreal University will be a free two-day crash course on Epic’s prized proprietary tech and let me reiterate that it will be free. All you have to do is schedule to show up. A keynote speech is also planned by Epic’s Senior Gameplay Designer Lee Perry, who will give an address on prototype designing, entitled “How Prototype-Based Design Shaped the Gears of War Series.”
Need to get more details? Sign-up to participate? Comment on the Facebook page so you can win a free Nvidia GeForce 460 GTX? Well, just head on over to the Official Unreal University Page for more info on dates and locations and feel free to drop a comment on the Facebook Page for your chance to win the 460 graphics card.
