FAQ / DETAILS

What is Core?

Core is a radically accessible game construction kit, community of creators, and game-playing platform, all in one. With Core, you can create multiplayer games, using the power of Unreal Engine, with no coding or art skills required. When you're ready to share your creations, publish them to the Core platform where they'll be instantly available to play. Not only is Core completely free, select creators can also monetize their games to make a living!
Core is like having an entire game studio in your hands. It gives you the power of Unreal Engine; lets you access hundreds of free, high quality music, sound, and art assets; and enables you to bring immersive, multiplayer worlds to life.

Simply put, we want to help you create the game of your dreams. To get started, download the client at coregames.com.
