Create a multiplayer RPG with Unreal Engine’s Gameplay Ability System (GAS)!
In this ” Unreal Engine 5 – Gameplay Ability System – Top Down RPG ” course, we will create a top-down RPG style game, filled with systems architected using Unreal Engine’s built-in Gameplay Ability System (GAS). This is where you will learn how to architect a shipped game, and code it expertly so it can be easily expanded, upgraded, and maintained. We follow SOLID coding principles, and balance the Blueprint/C++ ratio in a way that AAA shipped games do, such as Fortnite. My experience with AAA shipped game code, as well as consultations with industry veteran developers has allowed me to reveal to you the way a real shipped game’s code base looks like. If you’ve ever wondered how much of a game can be kept in Blueprint versus C++, look no further. This course is the answer.
The assets in this game project were made specifically for this course, and will be provided in an asset pack. This includes:
Characters, including Aura, the main character, as well as enemy characters including Goblin Warriors, Goblin Rangers, a Goblin Shaman, Red and Black Demons, the Ghoul, and a Shroom.
A modular dungeon pack that can be pieced together to make basic dungeons
A waypoint shrine and obelisks
Particle Niagara System Effects, including explosions, level up effects, slingshot rocks, hit impacts, electricity beams, fireballs, fire bolts, flames, stars for stun effects, and more!
Sound effects for enemies, footsteps, spells, and more!
Textures for the HUD, including high-quality buttons, frames, dynamically-animated spell globes, progress bars, XP bar, and more!
Full animation sets for Aura and all enemies
