Epic Games Acquires Twinmotion

The tool is available free of charge as a permanent license until November 2019.

Epic Games continues its wave of big acquisitions.

At the beginning of May, the company purchased Psyonix Inc. – the creators of Rocket League. Less than two weeks later Epic announced the acquisition of Twinmotion. This company deals with providing real-time, final-quality rendering through a simple and intuitive interface, using UE4 as a technical base. It’s a great solution for visualization professionals in the architecture, urban planning, and landscaping industries. Being a more approachable package, Twinmotion helps artists quickly produce images, panoramas, videos, and VR content for very demanding clients.

The good thing is that now anyone can play around with this product. You can go to the official website and download Twinmotion for free up until November 2019. You will be able to “keep using this version forever at no charge, with no royalty and no strings attached”. The brightest minds at Epic will continue perfecting the tool and adding new features for architects and designers. Additional features and pricing will be announced at a later date.
