“Without CCD we would have to implement a lot of the versioning, file IDs, and environments ourselves, which did not work as well in our previous ad-hoc solutions.”

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a CDN?

Two major challenges for game developers are keeping players engaged over time and reducing download waiting times. CDNs solve these challenges by providing access to a steady content pipeline and reducing initial app download sizes.

How do I sign up for Cloud Content Delivery?

You can get started today in under an hour – with no fees for any delivery volume until you surpass 50 GB monthly. This allows you to test our enterprise CDN with no commitment. Click “Sign in to get started” to begin or add Cloud Content Delivery directly from your Unity dashboard.

Do I need to sign up with a credit card?

When signing up for your free trial, you will be asked for your credit card information to activate Cloud Content Delivery. Your credit card will not be charged until your monthly usage goes beyond the included free bandwidth amount (50 GB/month). If you already have a Unity enterprise account or have questions about alternative payment methods, contact us.

Is my game right for Cloud Content Delivery?

Are you building a game that requires regular content updates? Free-to-play games with player economies, microtransactions, in-game events, and calendar milestones need an asset management and delivery solution.

Can Cloud Content Delivery only be used with Unity engine?

No. Our downloadable content service can easily be configured to work with any engine.
