The Marvel hype has been absolutely crazy in the past year or two, what with Captain America, Iron Man 2, Thor, and the upcoming Avengers movie, so it makes perfect sense that an upcoming game about the franchise would only use the best of the best.
And it’s going to. Today it was announced that Gazillion Entertainment (through Secret Identity Studios) has licensed the Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games to use in the upcoming, hugely anticipated Marvel Heroes MMO.
Jeff Lind, director at Secret Identity Studios, states
“We love Unreal Engine 3’s streaming system. It’s made our entire technical approach possible and is easy to work with.We also love the flexibility we get from the actor components, which have empowered us to make all kinds of customizations without sacrificing the built-in features of the engine.”
The art director for SIS, Josh Book, talks about the love the studio’s artists have for the browser and functional ability of the engine, including easy of use in terms of designing.
