Unreal Engine Licensing

Need to license the best game engine technology for your government-related project? You have come to the right place! ARA/Virtual Heroes is partnered with Epic Games to offer UE licensing. With Epic, we built the Unreal Government Network (UGN) - a portal for the government user of Unreal® technology.  This support channel is the mechanism for government contractors and users to become part of a larger community of developers, receive premium support from the experienced professionals at Virtual Heroes, and leverage literally millions of dollars of investment by Epic each year in cutting-edge engine refinement and advancement.

Unreal Engine 3 is integrated with numerous leading middleware technologies through Epic Games’ Integrated Partners Program. Continual optimizations are made to the Unreal Engine’s highly mature tool pipeline, massive world support and multi-processor performance. Unreal Engine 3’s advanced toolset is designed specifically to accelerate developers’ productivity for ultra-complex, next-generation, mission-critical applications.
