developer CCP Games
has announced a partnership with Epic Games China
that will bring Unreal Engine 3 technology to their forthcoming console MMOFPS known as Dust 514
. Set in the same universe as their successful PC MMORPG, Dust 514
is a console-only title that will enable players to interact with EVE
pilots as they battle for control of New Eden's resource-rich planets.
"The dynamic large-scale battlefields of DUST 514 presented an interesting challenge for us,"
said Hilmar Petursson, CEO of CCP
. "We determined Unreal Engine 3 to be the perfect solution because its tremendous flexibility allows us to easily integrate new technology and produce stunning results."
