More free tech

We’ve decided to make a number of existing Unity Pro features available to users of the free version of Unity:

  • Realtime shadows (one-directional light only; hard shadows only).

  • Text-based serialization of materials, prefabs, scenes etc. for easier version control.

  • NavMesh baking (OffMeshLinks still require Pro).

Now, games created using the free version of Unity can benefit from realtime shadows and game actors navigating intelligently. In addition, as a developer using the free version of Unity you can cooperate with your colleagues using any version control system, because text-based serialization no longer requires a Unity Pro license
