Xbox One gets Unity game engine support in 2014, licenses free for all ID@Xbox devs

Keep in mind Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program from this previous summer time, the place Xbox One devs get free improvement kits and entry to Microsoft’s instruments? Properly it seems just like the devs concerned are getting yet one more freebie: the Unity recreation engine. The add-on for Unity enabling Xbox One improvement launches sooner or later in 2014, and makes porting video games to Xbox One from the favored middleware all the better.

Working with Unity, devs can implement Kinect and SmartGlass performance as properly — and sure, the work devs do in Unity for Xbox One transfers particularly simply to Home windows and Home windows Telephone platforms (the middleware is free for devs on these platforms as nicely). Ought to that degree of Unity entry not be fairly sufficient for you, “particular Xbox One-solely” Unity Professional licenses may also be offered for devs enrolled within the ID@Xbox program. Now all we have now to do is wait, like, no less than a yr for the fruits of this effort.
