Learn to create your first game in Unreal Engine 5 using Blueprints


The course “Learn to create your first game in Unreal Engine 5 using Blueprints” is designed for beginner game developers who have no prior experience with Unreal Engine. The primary focus of the course is to guide absolute beginners in creating small games using Unreal Engine 5 (UE5), leveraging its powerful features and tools.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Navigation in Unreal Engine: The course begins with fundamental skills in navigating the UE5 interface, crucial for any game development process.
  • Blueprints: A significant portion of the course is dedicated to Blueprints, Unreal Engine’s visual scripting system. Students will learn how to add functionality to their game elements without writing code, starting with basic programming concepts.
  • Gameplay Effects: The course covers how to enhance the gaming experience by creating various gameplay effects, such as camera shake and environmental details like water.
  • Pause Menu: Students will also learn how to create a pause menu, a common feature in games that enhances user experience.

Course Description: The course is structured to transition learners from complete beginners to individuals confident in creating small-scale games. It covers the entire process of game creation in UE5, starting with prototyping a simple level using the latest tools provided by the engine. One of the highlights is learning to model directly within Unreal Engine using its new modeling tools, eliminating the need for external 3D modeling software.

Blueprints are a core component of the course, where learners are introduced to the basics of programming through a practical, hands-on approach. For instance, creating a movable platform involves understanding how to create Blueprints and add movement functionality. The course also covers how to add and adjust position variables and use splines for more complex movements.

To polish the game, students will learn to apply materials, add water, and incorporate a camera shake effect, which adds to the game’s visual and interactive quality. Finally, creating a pause menu is included to ensure learners can implement essential game features that improve playability.

Course Content: The course is divided into a single section comprising 13 lectures, with a total length of 59 minutes. Each lecture is short and focused on a specific aspect of game development:

  1. Navigation in Unreal Engine 5 (06:20)
  2. Modeling the platform (05:12)
  3. Creating the Blueprint Platform (04:45)
  4. Adding movement to the platform (03:29)
  5. Adding position variables (04:43)
  6. Adding splines (04:01)
  7. Prototyping the level (02:29)
  8. Decorating the level (06:25)
  9. Adding water (04:33)
  10. Making platforms fall (04:25)
  11. Adding a camera shake effect (04:16)
  12. Creating a pause menu (08:20)
  13. Final words (00:47)

Target Audience: The course is specifically tailored for beginner game developers who are just starting with Unreal Engine. It provides a comprehensive introduction to game development, making it an excellent starting point for anyone interested in entering the field.

By the end of the course, students will have created a simple game that they can share with friends, gaining foundational skills in game development using UE5’s powerful features.
