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...
- 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!
