Unreal Support in Hiro

Unity developers have been the only ones benefiting from Hiro’s groundbreaking feature set and capabilities for long enough! We’ve been hard at work to bring these same capabilities to the passionate community of Unreal Engine developers - and after over a year of development that day has arrived! Read the full blog post announcement here.

We didn’t stop at adding Unreal support however, there’s lots of exciting new features in the latest Hiro release for our existing Unity developers! A host of improvements to our Analytics system and integrations, updated Event Leaderboards and Tutorials features, as well as an entirely new Progression feature!

Heroic Labs @ Gamescom

Gamescom is a can’t miss event for the gaming industry and one of the events we most look forward to each year. This year’s event was as big as ever with more than 300k attendees!

It was great to see some old friends in person again, such as our close partners from Small Impact Games, Codewizards, Com2us, and Madfinger Games.

Equally exciting is getting to meet and speak with many of the new studios and developers, and learning about the exciting and innovative projects they’re working on.

But even over a full week in Cologne there’s just not enough time to speak with everyone you want to. If you were at Gamescom and we didn’t get a chance to meet, we’d love to hear from you and set up a time to talk and learn more about your studio and projects. Contact us and let’s chat!
