What is UE3Redist?

UE3Redist is a redistributable package that is installed with various games that utilize the Unreal Engine 3 developement kit. It is required in order to run the game(s) that distributed this and removing it would cause those games not to function properly. During installation of the game, it will install the UE3Redist (Unreal Engine Redistributable) package which is not an option. Typical Epic games that utilize this redistributable package include Unreal Tournament, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Bioshock, Borderlands, Gears of War, Mass Effect, Medal of Honor: Airborne, and many more games. The reason that this is installed as a stand along program than being bundled into the game itself is that it allows multiple games that utilize the UDK to not have to install the core engine multiple times.


The setup package is about 68.87 KB (70,524 bytes) when donwloaded.
