Epic to hold London developer event

Developer Day and Unreal University come to city for first time in July

Epic Games will hold a two day developer event in London for developers using, or interested in, Unreal technology.

The free event will see senior members of Epic's engine team and hand picked experts in UE3 offering hands on instruction and advice for anyone using Unreal Engine 3 or the Unreal Development Kit.

July 13 is Developer Day, for anyone currently covered by Epic's NDA for commercial Unreal Engine 3 evaluation or full license. The sessions and speakers are yet to be announced, the day will include a question and answer sessions and trouble shooting from Unreal veterans.

"We think European Unreal Engine 3 licensees, and prospective licensees, will get a lot of out the Epic Developer Day," offered vice president Mark Rein. "It replicates some of the successful sessions we hold behind closed doors during GDC in San Francisco minus the large travel expense of actually going to California."

Unreal University takes place on July 14, and is an introduction to using UDK, with speakers covering subjects like level design and mobile gaming.

"Unreal University is open to anyone and is great way to get a leg up on learning how to use Unreal Engine 3 via the Unreal Development Kit," added Rein.

"Participants will get hands-on experience building games, including a playable iOS game. We ran Unreal University at the East Coast Game Conference this year and participants absolutely loved it. It's a great way to get started with the Unreal Development Kit which has already been installed by over 800,000 developers worldwide."

Attendees should register online for both the Developer Day and Unreal University
