Unity Studios and Exit Games are Cooperating to Bring the Market’s Best Tool-Set for Massive Multiplayer Online Game Development with Unity
Exit Games, the leading provider of network engines and Unity Studios, sister company of the leading 3D platform provider Unity, today announced a partnership to introduce the perfect product tandem for MMO game development with Unity: Legion and Photon.
Legion provides a powerful MMOG development framework for Unity developers, which is perfectly complemented by Exit Games Photon. Legion will provide an extension of the Unity editor, and seamlessly integrate easy-to-use MMO development tools with the existing Unity work-flow. With Legion the developer can concentrate on making great games, and let Legion deal with the complicated build processes and maintenance of MMO servers, client code, and logic behaviors.
Photon is a fast, reliable and powerful socket server and high-performance network engine for multiple gaming platforms. Photon is built on native C/C++ and features Reliable UDP for ultimate speed and performance while custom server code is written in .NET/C# which makes it an ideal choice for Unity-based development.
Legion and Photon together form the market’s most powerful and easy to use combination for MMOG development with Unity.
Lars Kroll Kristensen, Technical Director of Unity Studios states “Having researched the market for MMO packages, I found that Photon from Exit games was the perfect match for Legion, and that these two in tandem provide the best possible tools for MMO development with Unity.”
“Building an MMOG is a tough challenge and developers should choose their tools carefully. Legion from Unity Studios plus Exit Games Photon is an ideal combination and the most powerful tool-set one can find to build stunning MMOGs,” says Christof Wegmann, CEO and Founder of Exit Games.
