The end of UT4… hummm nope, finally!!!

For now, if you already had UT4 and the UT4 Editor in Epic Games Launcher (EGL) library, you can still download them. After January 24, those, will be remove and won’t be available anymore. It’s the official end date of UT4 and the UT4 Editor so be sure to have a backup of the game just in case before Epic remove the game from the launcher because after that, forget it, sadly 😦

Since Epic officially abandon the entire UT franchise and not just UT4 after January 24 2023, finally, a viable solution exist to continue playing UT4 😀 And that solution is Unreal Tournament 4 Unofficial Update or UT4UU in short! Clicking on the link will lead you to the official UT4UU Discord channel.

UT4UU dev is made by 1 guy only, named timiimit. Dev is not new, he started that project in 2019. He decided to create something which could add new features to the game. UT4UU is the resulting creation and is essentially just a plugin with a nice installer for it.

The latest version 10.1.2 can be downloaded from Discord. For that, you need a Discord account, join UT4UU channel and in the “#Self Role Assignment” channel, add yourself to the “React with” by clicking on the erase-like green icon. Then the sub-channel “Tester” will appear and the latest version will be available. I did all this process, download + install UT4UU. In fact, since I play offline, what I like the most about UT4UU is the faster loading time. It takes 8 secs instead of ±40 in my case to get to UT4 interface!

That means that I’ll be able to continue making levels for my favorite game! Lucky me AND lucky you since I share them with everyone 🙂

  1. Thx a lot for the information! It appears to be a little tricky on my side, to get this to work, but now it runs well!
    I hoped for a solution like this – voila! 😉

    Now I´m looking forward to what is happening next, especially to your upcoming work!
    Best regards,
