Unity 4 beta is now public
Unity 4 beta is now public
November 1, 2012 | By Eric Caoili

Unity Technologies has made the next version of its popular multiplatform game engine, Unity 4.0, available to the public for the first time with a free beta.

The development platform features a new character animation system (made possible by Unity's acquisition of animation tools company Mecanim), DirectX11 support, exporting options for Flash, a preview of game deployment to Linux, and more.

Unity has billed the 4.0 engine as one that will make it possible for even small studios to create AAA-level titles, thanks to a promised boost to visual fidelity made possible by the platform's new features (e.g. real-time shadows on mobile) and optimizations.

Just a heads up for anyone installing 4 Beta that has 3.x installed, rename your 3.x Unity folder first.

You won't forget it. Small games can be prototyped in 2 hours, big ones in a week or two at most.

SWEET! Been waiting for the beta.

And thank you, Unity Technologies, for also recognizing our Linux community as well.
