Visual Studio and Unity: Seamless Integration

The Visual Studio and Unity integration enables you to be more productive and improve the developer inner loop. When working with scripts, you can use Visual Studio features like IntelliSense. You can also directly implement Unity API messages in MonoBehavior scripts and take advantage of the MonoBehavior wizard for adding method definitions. Visual Studio also enables you to view Unity scripts in the “Unity Project Explorer” and makes it easy to debug games with its powerful debugger. Ready to see your changes? Enable “Attach to Unity and Play” to automatically switch to the Unity editor and begin playback of your game.
