Engine gets new particle effect system, pathfinding, and Google Chrome native client

Unity 3.5 released

Unity Technologies released a new update to its popular game engine today, and claims the improvements are the biggest and best yet.

Unity 3D has made a swift rise to fame as a 3D game engine capable of putting triple-a production values in a browser window.

Unity 3.5 now supports Flash, and includes a preview mode for publishing to Adobe SWF format.

Changes include a new particle effect system, dubbed ‘Shuriken’, which makes it possible to group particle effects and treat them as a single entity, and a built in pathfinding system.

The update also includes Google Chrome native client deployment support, and automatic hyperthreading which places most of rendering and driver overhead onto a seperate core on multicore systems.

A complete listing of new features and changes can be found here.
