What is the Unity Asset Store and how do I purchase Assets?

Symptoms

  • I would like to know what the Unity Asset Store is
  • Where do I find Assets to buy?
  • How do I purchase an Asset on the Asset Store?

Cause

The Unity Asset Store is home to a growing library of free and commercial assets created both by Unity Technologies and also members of the Community.

A wide variety of assets is available, covering everything from textures, models and animations to whole Project examples, tutorials and Extension Assets.

The assets are accessed from a simple interface built into the Unity Editor and are downloaded and imported directly into your project.

People use the Asset Store as the content helps them to improve their game or application and reduce the workload needed to create models or tools.

Resolution

You can browse and purchase Assets on the Asset Store in two ways:

1. Open the Asset Store through the Unity Editor itself 

Click 'Window' > 'Asset Store'. Or simply press (Command + 9) or (Ctrl + 9).

This will open the Asset Store window and allow browsing of Assets. There is also a search box function if you know the specific Asset you are searching for.
