Unreal Engine 101 – 3D Game Creation

This course is a subset of lessons from Intro to Unreal Engine Game Development, which is included as a part of our Subscription package.

Master the principles of Unreal Engine for 3D game development!

Unreal Engine is one of the most popular engines available, used widely by AAA and indie studios alike. With amazing performance, the ability to render high-fidelity graphics, and a built-in visual scripting system, it’s used across multiple industries such as video games, filmmaking, and more.

This course will help you get started with Unreal Engine and teach you fundamentals for manipulating game objects. Additionally, you’ll explore the basics of lighting and physics – and how to incorporate them into your projects.

Whether you want to build an action RPG, FPS game, or something else, these foundations will form the core knowledge you’ll need to build any sort of Unreal Engine game in the future!

You will learn how to:

  • Set up Unreal Engine
  • Understand the Unreal Engine UI
  • Manage levels
  • Change object position, rotation, and scale
  • Create actors and lights
  • Access Unreal Engine physics

… 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.

No prior knowledge of Unreal Engine is required.
