Is there a Unity Sample available for the new Multiplayer Preview?

Hey! Our Project is being made with Unity3D, and going through the documentation of Multiplayer Servers 2.0, it seems from the FAQ, that making the new Servers work with Unity3D is not a straight forward Experience and mentions a Unity Sample will be made Available by January 2019. Is the sample Available yet?

Also, Regarding the Pricing, will there be charges for using Matchmaking and using Real-time Servers for Development?

Thank You!

As far as I know, there is still no Unity sample for Multiplayer Servers 2.0. However, some customers have gotten the C# GSDK to work with their Unity-based game server e.g. in this answer: https://community.playfab.com/answers/26785/view.html.

For pricing issue, please check Billing for PlayFab Multiplayer Servers 2.0. A basic allocation of multiplayer server capacity is included with every paid PlayFab tier: 100 Av2 virtual machine hours and 100 Dv2 virtual machine hours. This is typically not enough to launch a live game but can help you evaluate the service and get started.

Hey! Thanks for the Answer. Very Helpful! I

s there a way to use Playfab Thunderbird multiplayer servers in the free tier? Currently only paid tiers get hours on the server for development purposes. We're wiling to pay the costs for the server usage, even during development. Just don't want to waste money on services we'll not be using yet like player segmentation and stuff. But it looks like one can't access the multiplier section in the game manager unless in the paid tiers or use the legacy servers or external servers.

Unfortunately, free tier users can't use Thunderhead now. You will need to upgrade to a paid tier and PlayFab is free until you get to 1,000 Monthly Active Users (MAU). So it would still be free during development.

Thank You! If we exhaust the 100 hours per month limit that comes with the paid tiers, can we continue to use the servers by paying cost per hour, after the 100 hours?
