Should you get UDK or Unreal Tournament 3? What are the differences between the two? Which one should you start with and why? What about UE3? What are the differences?
These are very common questions when it comes to deciding which way to go.
UDK or Unreal Tournament 3.
In this article I will cover the main differences between the two. This is an overview and does not include all the differences between UDK and Unreal Tournament 3.
I'll also cover a common misconception of UE3.
But, after going through the article, you'll be able to make the decision and you will know the difference between the two.
UE3 is Unreal Engine 3.
UDK and Unreal Tournament 3 are both powered by Unreal Engine 3.
Some people referrer to UE3 as Unreal Editor 3, but UE3 stands for Unreal Engine 3. There is no such thing as Unreal Editor 3; Unreal Engine 3 Editor would be more accurate.
So, Unreal Engine 3 = UDK and UT3.
Unreal Editor interface between the UDK and Unreal Tournament 3 are essentially very similar. There are differences of course, but if you work with Unreal Tournament 3 you'll have no problem working in UDK and vice versa.
Majority of tutorials for Unreal Tournament 3 Editor will work with UDK.
So lets get down to each version.
I personally prefer UDK. I love the new features, new lighting and constant updates on the engine. In my opinion it is the ideal solution for game designers and game environment artists.
