    Announcing Unity 3.0! iPad, Android and PlayStation!


    View a video demo of the new deferred rendering features on Vimeo: Dark Unity


    Today we are extremely excited to announce Unity 3.0! Here is a link to the press release we put out just this morning:

    Unity Technologies Unveils Third Generation of Its Powerful Development Platform

    Please give the press release a read and stay tuned for site updates today as there will be lots of information coming forth. But let's just cover a few highlights in particular:

    - Unified editors (Unity and Unity iPhone now rolled into one!)
    - Improved physics
    - Built-in lightmapping (Beast)
    - Occlusion culling on the desktop/web
    - Improved rendering (deferred rendering!)

    - Of course iPad support is on the way (ASAP) but also...
    - Android!
    - PlayStation 3!

    There's more coming as well but these are just the first announcement highlights. We're going to begin pre-sales of Unity 3.0 right away, those that purchase a license will get a current license to work with and a 3.0 license when we ship that release. What's more is that we're offering pricing discounts during this pre-purchase period and those that purchase now will get pre-release build access! So go read that press release and keep an eye on our site today for more information.

    Release date: Summer 2010!


    For more details, read the press release or just visit our website:

    Unity 3.0 Coming Soon


    Anyone in town for GDC should stop by our booth (#1112, floor plan) and say hi, catch a demo and ask lots of questions!

    question about upgrade?

    the top of the purchase page reads:
    Below, you can now preorder Unity 3.0 with an early adopter discount. Get Unity Pro or Unity iPhone Pro for $1200 instead of $1500. Unity iPhone for $300 instead of $400. Upgrades from earlier verions are available at $500 for Unity Pro 2.x to 3.0 or Unity iPhone Advanced 1.x to Unity iPhone Pro 3.0 and $100 for Unity iPhone Basic 1.x to Unity iPhone. After 3.0 has been released the upgrade prices will be raised to $750 and $150 respectively.

    Am I reading that wrong, or is the iPhone 3 basic from iPhone 1.x suppose to cost $100 now? Cause the options on the page show $300?

    (Oh, and I am sooooo, buying the upgrade!! What ever you do, don't tell my wife!!! )

    Cheers,

    Galen

    The options only show the price for a full purchase. The correct price will be filled in on the following page after you fill in a valid Unity serial number containing an iPhone Basic 1.x license.

    (I will be working on updating the upgrade section in the next couple of days to make it more clear.)

    I was going to be the first the post a reply, but I fainted...

    Unified editor, source level debugging, android coming... did I just die and wake up in heaven?

    AWESOME!!!!

    Question about the upgrade: will the $500 upgrade cover both iPhone pro and Unity 2.x to 3.0?

    Is there going to be a free 3.0 eventually? Thinking about picking up an iPhone license, but still want to be able to develop for free on the PC / Mac.

    Absolutely phenomenal release!

    Quick question:

    If you have Unity Advanced 2.x and iPhone Advanced 2.x licenses and want to pre-order 3.0 right now what are the correct steps?

    I see that you can select "Upgrade to Unity Pro" for $500, but if you add iPhone Pro it adds $1200 rather than the $500 upgrade cost from 1.x in your press release.

    Thanks

    This is the update I was waiting for...

    I'm a bit surprised, especially for the Beast lightmap system, since a couple of days ago pureLIGHT announces their support for Unity...

    Anyway, this means that, by using deferred rendering, is possible to achieve a good real-time lighting system?

    I would like to know if even this 3.0 version will be free as the 2.6...that will be totally awesome!

    No, it will cost $500 to upgrade your 2.x Pro to 3.x Pro, and another $500 to upgrade your 1.x iPhone Advanced to 3.x iPhone Pro.

    NOTE: please take note, not only is our iPhone product jumping version numbers (1.x straight to 3.x due to editor unification) but there is a product renaming going on! Unity iPhone Basic will now be known simply as Unity iPhone, Unity iPhone Advanced will now be known as Unity iPhone Pro.

    Yes, as per the press release our free product isn't going anywhere (why do you people keep disbelieving that it's a permanent change!? ). We are committed to offering Unity [free] FOREVER. So yes, once we ship you'll have access to a free version, but only those that purchase a license (spend money) get pre-release access.

    Click option to upgrade your Pro license to 3.x, click option to add iPhone Pro and ignore the $1200 price for now. On the next page you'll be able to enter your current serial number and when it validates as 2.x Pro with 1.x iPhone Advanced the proper discount price will be shown.

    Don't mix the notion of 3rd parties doing cool stuff with whatever we might be building into the app natively. And yes, deferred rendering let's folks do all sorts of cool new things. Go to our site and check out that video!

    No, not at all sorry. That gets incredibly messy in a hurry and just isn't worth it from our end. So get your funds together and make your purchase when ready.

    Great thanks for the info Tom I'll be doing some license upgrades today. One thing I wanted to ask, I notice the page states early access to the Unity Pro 3 beta... is that currently available or is that coming soon?

    Sorry for the questions just wanted some clarification.

    So, just to pose an irritating question: how's the Android license going to work?

    We are upgrading PhysX but will be saving the specifics until later, let's just say it will have some juicy new features for sure!

    Thanks for the quick reply, being a UK potential customer would mean another $600 for VAT?
