"Microsoft HoloLens unshackles game and app designers from traditional screens creating a freedom to completely reimagine how we view and interact with information, education, entertainment, creative tools, social networks, remote healthcare and more," said Steffen Toksvig, VP of strategic technology at Unity.

As part of the agreement, Unity tools will be included in the Unity Personal and Unity Pro packages for HoloLens.

"Expanding our relationship with Unity Technologies was a natural next step in bringing content to Microsoft HoloLens," said Yusuf Mehdi, head of Xbox business strategy and marketing at Microsoft. "We are excited to unveil this partnership and look forward to the possibilities it will open for developers creating experiences for Microsoft HoloLens."
