By combining simple C++ classes with the power of UE4\’s visual scripting language Blueprints, a procedural arena will be constructed to stream for a player to endlessly navigate. Additional topics will touch on the basics of UE4’s physically based material system, lighting and atmosphere, Unreal Motion Graphics, and more. The evening will wrap up by compiling the game into a distribution ready executable, and a quick look at the setup behind some existing Unreal Engine 4 games currently in production.

This tutorial assumes prior 3D game development experience, but no knowledge or familiarity with Unreal Engine. It is meant to give the viewer an overview of the various tools found in the Unreal Engine, and the overall process of creating a simple game from scratch all the way up to a distributable executable.
