CEO David Helgason said: "This is one of the most spectacular additions we've ever made to Unity. Recognising that Unity was being pushed harder and harder, we launched our initiative to upgrade Unity with high-end capabilities that larger studios are accustomed to and smaller studios don't usually have access to.

"We want to make Unity the best choice for everyone, and Unity 3.5 is a massive demonstration of our commitment to that goal."
