| Back in May we saw the Unity game engine offered up free for developers on Android, iOS and Windows Phone and while there was no BlackBerry 10 support, it was said to be coming soon. Today, Unity Pro 4.2 has released an update that now fully supports BlackBerry 10. This means that BB10 devs can take advantage of all the great tools that Unity has to offer and create some awesome game titles for the BlackBerry 10 platform. BlackBerry has also teamed up with Unity to offer select Unity Pro License holders a free copy of the add-on license if they submit a game developed with Unity to BlackBerry World, plus they will also be eligible for a free BlackBerry Z10.
Unity 4.2 comes with three new platforms: Windows Phone 8, Windows Store apps and BlackBerry 10. That’s right, we’ve doubled the number of mobile platforms Unity supports! Now it’s up to you guys to create new games and port existing titles to these platforms so even more people can benefit from your creative talents.
In Unity 4.2, all users of the free version of Unity can publish to any mobile platform they wish, be it Windows Phone 8, Windows Store, iOS, Android or BlackBerry 10 without it costing a dime. In addition, Unity Pro users can use the Windows Store Pro deployment option (which includes the Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store apps platforms) absolutely free of charge.
Plus, Unity Pro users can benefit from advanced Unity features when deploying their iOS, Android or BlackBerry 10 projects by purchasing Unity iOS Pro, Android Pro or BlackBerry 10 Pro Add-On products from the Unity Store.
