Unreal Engine and Godot Developers Now Have Access to Multiplatform Test Execution, HPath Object Identification, Simulated Input, and More
GameDriver™ — the leader in test automation solutions in the gaming, AR, and VR industries — announced at Gamescom Asia that the latest beta for their flagship software brings with it support for Unreal Engine 4 and Godot. Expanding the ecosystem of supported game engines and test frameworks in this way enables more developers to experience the positive impact GameDriver has on testing workload, development time, and overall product quality.
The GameDriver team is constantly working on ways to improve their software and offerings in order to deliver the best product for developers and testers. With Unreal Engine 4 and Godot support now in beta access, developers using those engines have access to many of GameDriver’s most impactful features, such as HPath object identification, simultaneous automated test execution across multiple platforms, and simulated input of mouse, keyboard, tap, touch, and VR devices. The GameDriver team is also planning Unreal Engine 5 support in the near future.
“GameDriver support for Unreal Engine 4 and Godot is a crucial step towards making reliable and accessible test automation a standard across the industry,” said Shane Evans, Co-founder, Chief Product Officer, and Evangelist at GameDriver. “The ubiquity of Unreal Engine 4, and the open source nature of Godot made these two development engines the natural choice for expanding GameDriver’s useability.”

GameDriver was founded in 2018 to introduce standardized, reusable, and scalable automated testing to an industry in desperate need. Video games, VR, AR, and other forms of interactive entertainment rely too heavily on manual quality assurance practices. This can lead to additional labor cost, unideal working situations, and an overall lower quality product. GameDriver mitigates these issues by streamlining the testing process and making the best use of manual testers’ time. https://gamedriver.io
