Unity Lets Devs Sign Up for Early Access to BlackBerry Add-on Open Beta

Unity Logo

We told you earlier that Unity was working on an add-on for their platform to make it easier to bring games to BlackBerry 10. They are letting developers sign up for early access to the add-on before the open beta which starts later this spring. They want developers to sign on to influence what features will be prioritized and provide feedback on the tool.

You can preregister now at this link. Here are some important notes from Unity:

The hardware – You will be able to publish games to all BlackBerry 10 devices including the Z10 and the Q10 along with future devices. Once BlackBerry releases BlackBerry 10 for Playbook you will also be able to bring games to the tablet as well.

Publishing to BlackBerry AppWorld – You will be able to port your existing games to the BlackBerry 10 platform using the Unity 4.2 alpha/beta builds. We will provide a two month trial license key for all registered beta participants that will unlock BlackBerry platform support in the Unity toolset.

Please note that any project deployed with a trial license will be watermarked and not for commercial release. Developers who wish to publish their games on BlackBerry App World using our alpha/beta builds should contact the Unity Sales Department.

Be cautious about signing up if you’re on a tight deadline – It’s not ideal to become a beta-tester if you have any time sensitive dependencies to release your Unity product in BlackBerry App World. This Unity Beta product will not be fully functional nor contain a full commercial feature locked set of tools. New users to Unity should wait to develop in Unity for BlackBerry until after the public commercial release.
