Look Who’s using Unity 3D!
We’ll it’s official, the Unity secrets is out of the bag….now even Electronic Arts is using it! There is a nice article about how EA used Unity to create the online Tiger Woods PGA tour.
The part in the article I really enjoyed was:
“Nothing like this has ever been done at EA before and so we had to invest in new technology and create a new infrastructure to reach our goal of an online, streamed version of Tiger. This includes a new technology called UNITY 3D which allows for fully 3D games to be played within a web browser, a host of custom backend technologies for serving up content, peer-to-peer communication, web services and game servers. All of this new technology allows us to create a version of Tiger for the web that will have the same level of quality as the console versions, while also providing us with the ability to stream the game to you instead of having to install it from a disc or download a huge file. Instead, you simply install the UNITY web player, which takes about 30 seconds, and the rest of the game is streamed.”
