Reach more players by bringing your game to multiple platforms.
Shipping your game on multiple platforms helps you reach more players, wherever they play. This not only gives you a larger potential user base at launch, it also offers an opportunity to reengage your most dedicated fans as their hardware preferences change.
As new platforms with more complex APIs evolve, Unity advances our strategic partnerships to ensure that our platform support keeps growing alongside the industry, so you take your game anywhere your players are.
Optimizing for multiplatform
Performance and graphic fidelity vary by console and device. To ensure players have a great experience anywhere, consider:
- Prioritizing testing on your minimum-spec device to pinpoint baseline performance and use Unity’s profiling and debugging tools to prevent, identify, and fix performance problems across all platforms
- Using the Addressable Asset System for content delivery when optimizing for web and mobile to ensure download size isn’t an issue
- Optimizing team collaboration and project version control with solutions like Plastic SCM
- Working directly with experts at Unity through Accelerate Solutions to achieve optimal performance across platforms
Maximizing reach with multiple platforms
When shipping your game on multiple platforms, it’s essential to ensure that your game is ready to grow so you can reach as many players as possible.
Scale your games efficiently with Unity’s Data-Oriented Technology Stack (DOTS). It enables you to iterate faster with C# code that’s easier to read and reuse across other projects.
Unity Gaming Services can help you build live games with tools for multiplayer services, game operations, user acquisition, and monetization.
Deliver performance and flexibility to your gaming infrastructure and provide the best experience to your players with Cloud Game Server Hosting (Multiplay) for multiplayer games.
Understanding multiplatform costs and roadblocks
Multiplatform games come with challenges as well as opportunities for success.
You’ll want to make sure your game isn’t crashing or lagging on any of your target platforms. Unity Cloud Diagnostics enables you to filter crash and performance data, link it to different response teams, and set up custom dashboards to ensure your game runs smoothly on targeted hardware.
It can also be helpful to hear from creators who have taken their games from concept to launch. Unity Roundtable: Learn the true costs and tips for creating a game features industry-leading experts who share advice and game creation experiences.
