Unity 5.0 Pre-order FAQ

High-end shaders for all

We bring all the advantages of physically-based shading to Unity users everywhere.

Learn more

Physically-based and better

Our new shader is set up to make your materials look good in any lighting environment. One shader provides amazing out-of-the-box visual fidelity across metal, plastics, wood, ceramics, cloth and many more. Use it across 95% of the materials in your game.

Artist-driven shading technology

Artists have been heavily involved in every step of the development of Unity’s physically-based shader. Our team has spent over 18 months hard at work behind the scenes to make sure that the workflows involved in using it are as pared back and intuitive as possible. For that reason alone, we know you’re going to love it.

Cross-platform real-time Global Illumination

With Enlighten-powered real-time GI for high-end mobile and more we’ve broken new ground and raised the quality bar several notches.

Lighting that dazzles

Animate lights, environment lighting and emissive material properties in real time with our physically-based Global Illumination solution that builds on Geomerics Enlighten technology. Use Global Illumination to light characters and dynamic geometry from your environments for polished results on high-end mobile, desktop and consoles.

Rapid iteration in the editor

No more tweak, bake and repeat. Even when you move static geometry, Global Illumination updates immediately. Powered by Imagination Technologies.

A revolution in game audio

Imagine the game audio system of your dreams, then add some. That’s our vision for audio in Unity 5, and we’ve already brought so much of it to life.

Truly awesome sound

Our new audio mixing system brings never before seen audio functionality to gaming software. Yet, with simple workflows and processes familiar to audio engineers that are easy for the rest of us to get to grips with, anyone can improve the audio in their game massively, and do so without incurring prohibitive performance overheads.

So many new features
