Upgrading to Fantasy Grounds Unity from Classic

Licenses for Fantasy Grounds Classic are no longer for sale and FGC has been phased out almost entirely. As of the time of this update, it is still downloadable for current FGC license-holders, but no further FGC licenses are for sale.

Beginning on June 24, 2021, Fantasy Grounds Classic will no longer receive any product updates or DLC releases. Please consider upgrading to Fantasy Grounds Unity.

What happens to my Fantasy Grounds (Classic) installation?

Your Fantasy Grounds (Classic) installation and campaigns will remain operational and unaffected by Fantasy Grounds Unity (FGU). The applications, their data folders, and the license keys are completely different. Any DLC or add-ons that you have purchased through Steam or through the Fantasy Grounds store, however, will also be installed for FGU.

How do I move my current campaign to Fantasy Grounds Unity?


Is There a Discount for Upgrading from FGC to FGU?

There currently is no discount for upgrading from a Classic to a Unity license. We do, however, have various sales throughout the course of the year, and licenses are often on sale. Keep an eye on our newsletter for sale announcements as they happen.
