Unity expands support to include PlayStation Mobile

Sony's mobile platform added to long list of supported systems

Unity, the ground-breaking game engine that has helped drive an era of indie games, has expanded further to support PlayStation Mobile.


The engine, which has nearly three million registered developers, has been used to create hundreds of 2D and 3D titles, from Hearthstone to Hitman GO to Rust, The Room, Monument Valley, Broforce and Ori and the Silent Forest.

Expanded support for PlayStation Mobile adds to the engine's extensive list of supported platforms, which includes PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Facebook, Windows Phone 8, Blackberry, Wii U, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The engine is free to try, with subscription fees only applicable to commercial projects. Compiling a game to a certain platform, particularly consoles, often requires the purchase of a developer licence.

PlayStation Mobile is Sony's games platform used for its smartphones, such as the Xperia Z range. The platform is also accessible on PS Vita. Games on PlayStation Mobile includes Super Crate Box and Chaos Rings.
