Master the fundamentals for RTS games in Unreal Engine!
Real-time strategy games combine the best of quick action and thought-provoking decisions. This has made them not only an immensely popular genre for developers to take advantage of, but one with room for a lot of creative expression.
You’ll explore foundational strategy game mechanics, such as unit movement, that are common to multiple kinds of RTS games. Along the way, you’ll construct a small unit combat-based game while practicing core functionality for Unreal Engine and the Blueprints Visual Scripting system.
Whether you want to build a space epic, historical battle simulator, or something else, these core techniques will ensure you’re ready to tackle any sort of RTS with expandable base mechanics.
This course assumes familiarity with Unreal Engine.
You will learn how to:
- Make units selectable and moveable
- Implement simple combat and enemy AI
- Use the Nav Mesh for auto-navigation
- Provide combat & selection feedback
- Create RTS-appropriate cameras
- Improve prototype-level aesthetics
… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
