Features and Highlights

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
The app supports both 2D and 3D development with features and functionality for your specific needs across genres.

AI pathfinding tools
The app 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.

User interfaces
The built-in Unity 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 the Asset Store, which features thousands of resources, tools, and extensions to speed up your projects.

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 the program.

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 the software'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 optimize your scene with Mixed Lighting Modes for the best result per target platform.

Real-time rendering engine
Produce amazing visual fidelity with Real-Time Global Illumination and Physically Based Rendering.

Native Graphics APIs
The program supports multi-platforms 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.

More platform support
25+ platforms across mobile, desktop, console, TV, VR, AR, and the Web. With Unity Hub app, 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.

Work faster together
Save, share, and sync your projects and use simple version control and cloud storage, all seamlessly integrated with this app.

Real-time insights with live-ops analytics
The app Analytics gives you fast, easy access to important information that helps you improve your in-game economy and the player experience. Complete set of live-operation features (game & player analytics, heatmaps, performance monitoring) to monitor player activity.

Discover app errors
The tool Performance Reporting addresses issues in real-time. Find and address the high priority issues that your customers are experiencing. Collect and react to application errors, in real-time, across devices and platforms.

The simplest way to increase revenue
Revenue-generation solutions: Ads & IAP. A complete set of live-operation analytics features for monitoring player activity. Continuous improvements: Optimize the performance of your live games in real-time, without redeployment, and increase user Lifetime Value (LTV) with the power of analytics data.

Note: Unity Personal is free, but it can only be used if your revenue is below $100,000 or you have raised less than this amount in funds. Users who do not meet this requirement need to purchase a Pro or Plus subscription, which also offers advanced support features.

Changed:
- Editor: ObjectField label is now shown with 70% opacity for null values. This applies to both UI Toolkit and IMGUI
- Editor: EditorGUIUtility.ObjectContent will no longer include an icon when the value is null. When the type of object is stated in the label, there is no need for the type icon to be shown. Showing an icon when the value is null can create confusion and when the value is "Missing" it can be perceived as there is a texture there named missing. If you still wish to have an icon you can use AssetPreview.GetMiniTypeThumbnail(type);

- Physics: Related to the entry of UUM-58304, the main issue of the joint frame is fixed and the old behavior when no extended limits are present functions as expected. When extended limits are used in conjunction with a motorized hinge, the hinge joint local body frame no longer gets an offset based on the current transforms of the bodies attached to the joint. Previously this would happen due to the internal PhysX joint being recreated as either a 6-dof or hinge joint depending on a motor/spring being used or not

- Scripting: Changed: The class HierarchyNodeTypeHandlerBase constructor no longer has any parameters, the default constructor will be used now, and is guaranteed to be called
- Scripting: Changed: The class HierarchyNodeTypeHandlerBase no longer implements the IDisposable interface, so that Dispose cannot be called manually on instances. There is still the Dispose method with a disposing parameter available to override if needed

Changed:
- Android: Prefer to use android.view.WindowMetrics.getBounds instead of DisplayMetrics.getMetrics/getRealMetrics when device API level is 30 or higher
- Build System: include bee_backend.pdb next to bee_backend.exe on windows installs.

Fixed:
- Android: UTK input field cursor will be always visible now when TouchScreenKeyboard opens, independent of hideInput value, when running on GameActivity. The reason is TouchScreenKeyboard.hideInput doesn't do anything on GameActivity, input field is always hidden

- DX12: Added support for indirect Dispatch Rays (part of DXR 1.1). The method is similar to RayTracingShader.Dispatch, but the three dispatch dimensions are retrieved from a GraphicsBuffer. Added RayTracingShader.DispatchIndirect and a new CommandBuffer.DispatchRays signature. Added SystemInfo.supportsIndirectDispatchRays capability status.
- Editor: Added a custom menu on IRenderPipelineGraphicsSettings.
- Editor: Added a piercing menu that you can open with Ctrl + Right-click in the Scene view. The piercing menu provides a UI that lists all GameObjects under the pointer. GameObjects in the menu can be highlighted and selected.

- Editor: Added Additional App IDs to Steam ID Provider Editor Settings for Multiple App ID support.
- Editor: Integrated new build profile icons.
- Editor: Introduced IRenderPipelineResources to host SRP resources, which uses the ResourcePath to auto-load resources.
- Editor: The Build Profile Diagnostic checkbox is no longer available because the Build Settings window has been replaced with the Build Profile window.
- Graphics: Added a new backend rendering path for rigid GameObjects in Unity that puts them through the Batch Render Group API when the option is enabled on the Render Pipeline asset ('GPU Resident Drawer'). This functionality creates a persistent GPU state for these objects and they will be rendered by the same fast batching path as used by the entities renderer.
- Graphics: Added small-mesh culling for gpu-driven instances.
- Graphics: Added support for GPU occlusion culling of instances that are compatible with the 'GPU Resident Drawer', which can be enabled in the Render Pipeline asset.

History textures are wrapped and stored in types which contain all the textures, additional data, and API methods specific for that history.
History textures are useful for rendering algorithms that accumulate samples over multiple frames or use data of previous frames as input.

- Android: Fixed
- Android: Fixed .androidlib default build.gradle, it will correctly apply android library plugin + targetSDKVersion.
- Android: When producing the symbols.zip package, Unity will prompt Gradle to produce the zip, which means the symbols.zip package might contain more symbol files, allowing for better stack trace resolution. This also allows you to regenerate the symbols package from within the Gradle project.
- Android: You can now embed Debug symbols into an app bundle (e.g., in the Build Settings window, choose Debug Symbol > level and format to IncludeInBundle) when uploading .aab files to the Google Play Store. The symbols are uploaded together with aab, which means you don't need to upload the symbols separately.
