Hi, 

We're so sorry for unacceptable delay in our response. It seems your question fell off our radar but it's better late than never!

Currently, Rider for Unreal Engine can be used for free due to Early Preview program. It can be used for your project without any issues (especially non-commercial projects). Though it is another question once it's officially released because our license conditions come into effect. Maybe you will be able to use one of the community programs but your game must be non-commercial for sure. In case you have any additional questions on that, it's better to contact our Rider support exactly: https://rider-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200410195-General-Discussion

Rider is incredible. I've been using it for three years and don't think I'll ever go back to Visual Studio. It's much faster and has more features than VS. Also, the integration with Unity is far superior to what VS has to offer.

I believe JetBrains offers a 30-day free trial of Rider, which I highly recommend.
