The world’s leading
real-time creation platform
Unity is used to create half of the world’s games. Our real time platform, powered by tools and services, offer incredible possibilities for game developers, and creators across industries and applications.
Rich & Extensible editor
An all-in-one Editor that extends to match your production workflow
The Unity Editor features multiple tools that enable rapid editing and iteration in your development cycles, including Play mode for quick previews of your work in real-time.
- All-in-one editor: Available on Windows and Mac, it includes a range of artist-friendly tools for designing immersive experiences and game worlds, as well as a strong suite of developer tools for implementing game logic and high-performance gameplay.
- 2D & 3D: Unity supports both 2D and 3D development with features and functionality for your specific needs across genres.
- AI pathfinding tools: Unity includes a navigation system that allows you to create NPCs that can intelligently move around the game world. The system uses navigation meshes that are created automatically from your Scene geometry, or even dynamic obstacles, to alter the navigation of the characters at runtime.
- Efficient workflows: Unity Prefabs, which are preconfigured Game Objects, provide you with efficient and flexible workflows that enable you to work confidently, without the worry of making time-consuming errors.
- User interfaces: Our built-in UI system allows you to create user interfaces fast and intuitively.
- Physics engines: Take advantage of Box2D and NVIDIA PhysX support for highly realistic and high-performance gameplay.
- Custom tools: You can extend the Editor with whatever tools you need to match your team’s workflow. Create and add customized extensions or find what you need on our Asset Store, which features thousands of resources, tools and extensions to speed up your projects.
- Better Collaboration: See what others are working on, right in the Unity editor where you spend most of your time.
Build once, deploy anywhere to reach the largest possible audience
- 25+ platforms across mobile, desktop, console, TV, VR, AR and the Web.
- More platform support than any other creation engine: With Unity, you can reach the widest audience and feel confident that your IP is future-proof, no matter how the industry evolves or where your imagination takes you.
Optimize your interactive creations with a top performing engine that keeps on improving.
- Advanced profiling tools: Continuously optimize your content throughout development with Unity’s profiling features. Check to see if your content is CPU or GPU-bound, for example, and pinpoint those areas that require improvement, so you can provide your audience with a smooth-running experience.
- Native C++ performance: Benefit from our cross-platform native C++ performance with the Unity-developed backend IL2CPP (Intermediate Language To C++) scripting.
- Scripting runtime Mono /.NET 4.6 / C# 7.3
- High-performance multithreaded system: Fully utilize the multicore processors available today (and tomorrow), without heavy programming. Our new foundation for enabling high-performance is made up of three sub-systems: the C# Job System, which gives you a safe and easy sandbox for writing parallel code; the Entity Component System (ECS), a model for writing high-performance code by default, and the Burst Compiler, which produces highly-optimized native code.
Unity’s new, highly-modular runtime lets you build instant games that are small, light and fast.
- Complete control over your file size
- Work with the Editor you know and love
- Unparalleled performance and scalability
Powering over two-thirds of VR and AR experiences
Unity is the preferred development tool for the majority of XR creators. Used by everyone from AAA game studios like Ubisoft, top creative agencies like Weiden+Kennedy, space pioneers at NASA, top Hollywood directors like Neill Blomkamp and Eric Darnell, and even our friends at Google for their Tiltbrush and Blocks experiences, Unity is your best and most valuable solution for jumping into the latest and greatest immersive technologies.
Create an evocative atmosphere that enthralls players
Bring your game alive in the day with sun shafts or take your players down midnight streets glowing with neon signs or into shadowy tunnels.
- Real-time rendering engine: Produce amazing visual fidelity with Real-Time Global Illumination and Physically Based Rendering.
- Native Graphics APIs: Unity supports multiplatforms, but still stays close to the low level graphics API of each platform, allowing you to take advantage of the latest GPU and hardware improvements, like Vulkan, iOS Metal, DirectX12, nVidia VRWorks or AMD LiquidVR.
Artist and Designer Tools
A workspace for creative people
The Unity Editor is a creative hub for artists, designers, developers, and other team members. It includes 2D and 3D scene design tools, storytelling and cinematics, lighting, audio system, Sprite management tools, particle effects and a powerful dopesheet animation system.
- Storytelling: The Timeline tool gives artists the power to create stunning cinematic content & gameplay sequences.
- Cinematic content: With Cinemachine’s suite of smart and dynamic cameras, you can control shots just like a movie director from within the Editor.
- Color grading and effects: Create the look you want with professional and fully featured Post Processing FX.
- Animation: Use Timeline, Anima2D, Particles, and tight integration with Maya and other 3rd party tools to animate directly within Unity.
- Level design and worldbuilding: With ProBuilder, rapidly design, prototype and play-test your levels, then blend textures and colors, sculpt meshes and scatter objects with Polybrush (beta).
- Round-tripping: Detail and polish your 3D models on-the-fly with Unity's seamless integration of digital content-creation (DCC) tools like Maya.
- Lighting: Get instant feedback with the Progressive Lightmapper, polish and hone your scene with Post Processing, and optimise your scene with Mixed Lighting Modes for the best result per target platform.
