As every month, the Unreal Marketplace is offering some assets for free. If you are an Unreal Engine user, it is a good idea to keep an eye on the Marketplace every month, as there may be stuff you will like.
This month, we have scene sets, an animation set and a modular character creator. Let’s take a look.
The first one is titled Supermarket and, as you can guess, it’s a supermarket scene. What’s nice about this one is that it includes the exterior and interior, with populated shelves, karts, parking items, and even maintenance equipment. The entire scene reminded me of the movie The Mist, and it can be interesting to make a game set in this place.
The next is the Boss Enemy Animation Pack, a set of animations meant to be used on a slow boss. However, I see no reason why you can’t use these in your character as well. The set includes attacks, stagger, parry, battle intro, walks, runs, one idle, and hit reactions.
If you want to create snowy forests, you can use the Winter Forest Set. This is a scene that includes a lot of props you can use to create your own exterior winter scene.
The next asset is the Stylized Modular Character. This is a system that lets you create your own characters out of a set of preset heads and body parts. The set uses “Fortnite-style” characters, and, while I am not a fan of that style, I think the important element here is learning to use the system so you can create one with your own characters.
Lastly, the Industrial Area Hangar is another scene. This set includes a big hangar, some buildings, shipping containers and other props to populate the scene.
And that’s it for this time. If you find assets that interest you, go ahead and download them. Just remember these are given for free to use in UE4. This means you can’t grab a scene and send it to Unity to make your game there.
To get the assets, you just need to go to the Unreal Marketplace and, under Free, click on Free For The Month.
