What is UPK file?

Users may create files that use the .UPK extension by using the Unreal Development Kit. This is a program related to the free gaming engine called Unreal Engine 3. The engine is best known for popular games such as Mass Effect and BioShock.

Files with this extension serve as a container to keep the necessary content used in games. You can load them while playing, and they can include a variety of data. The information they hold can be meshes used by the game, maps, music, 3D models, and game settings. In addition, users can use them to save textures, as well as game rules and other files.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the UPK file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the UPK file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the UPK file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the UPK file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the UPK file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
