Unity is finally coming to Linux

One of the best game engines Unity has been presented yesterday as a preview version. Now the new version of Unity supports Linux apart of Windows, Mac OS X, Android, Wii and other platforms. Furthermore, a new animation system, support for DirectX 11 and Adobe Flash have been added to the game engine.

Today, Unity is used for developing of a big number of computer games, both indie and AAA titles. In the near future Unity is also going to be used for the implementation of Wasteland 2.

In the press release to the new version, Unity developers have explained the decision to support Linux with the fact that the estimated 10% of the PC players use Linux and are very "hungry" for more game content. A more detailed demonstration of Unity 4 is planned for the Unite developer conference that takes place from 22 to 25 August 2012 in Amsterdam. The pre-release version can already be purchased here. More detailed information to the new version can be found here.
