Unity Hub: Editor installation#

You must download and install the Unity Hub to install the editor.

Which version to install#

It's generally recommended you install the latest LTS (long term support) version of Unity. When choosing a version from the Hub, there will be an LTS tag, and it should be marked recommended version.

Alternatively, when starting a project it can be helpful to have up-to-date features, with the aim to be on an LTS when your game is released. In this case you can choose a non-LTS version, the "Tech stream", or a Beta or Alpha version, at increasing levels of risk of unexpected or unfixed editor issues.

Versions listed in the Hub#

  1. Select the Installs page from the left side of the Hub.
  2. Select Install Editor from the top right of that page.
  3. Select Install on the version you wish to install.
  4. If you do not have any version of Visual Studio installed, it's recommended you install it here and later check it's configured for use.
    1. Install the platforms you wish to support. Anything on this page can be installed later by modifying an install in the Hub.
