Panzar Studio has announced
its development of Forged by Chaos
, which will use the popular CryEngine 2 engine, which powered the PC game Crysis
. From the looks of the character concept art, it needs all that power. CEO Vladimir Valkov says "For such a game as this we were searching for a modern graphics engine that was capable of utilizing DirectX 10 technology ... We were also impressed by their handy Sandbox 2 editor, which was designed to work with very expansive and highly detailed locations, their modern dynamic lighting model, and their character animation systems, including inverse kinematics and dynamics."
There is currently no information on actual game mechanics or release date, but there is some lore on the site, as well as some concept art. We'll keep an eye on this title and provide more news as it develops. Doesn't some of this look like the Warhammer
aesthetic? Tons of doodads and gewgaws dangling from every available surface? This is the true definition of fantasy warfare.
