Free Download

Photon Thunder Features

Add matchmaking, punch-through (STUN) and an advanced relay service to your Unity Multiplayer HLAPI game. All at an unbeatable price.

Unity Integration

Thunder is tightly integrated with Unity. Just use Unity's free HLAPI as you usually do, but benefit from Thunder's punch-through, matchmaking and relay features.


In case a peer-2-peer connection fails, Thunder's punch-through feature tries to create the direct connection between the clients. 100% connected

Cloud Relay

Cloud relay guarantees that no player gets lost. When a peer-to-peer connection cannot be established, the game clients connect seamlessly via the globally distributed Cloud Relay. 100% connected

Matchmaking API

You match players into games randomly or by parameterized searches. Or you create a list of open rooms and let players pick one. It works. Reliably. On mobiles, PCs, Consoles and in the web.

Global Scalability

Thunder runs in the Photon Cloud and guarantees low latency, shortest round-trip times and seamless scalability for your players - worldwide.
