Square shows off Luminous engine

Square Enix has shown off its new ‘photo realistic’ Luminous engine in Japan.

According to Edge, the new, in-house only engine, is designed with native DirectX 11 support and includes photo realistic graphics and cloth and fluid simulation, realtime reflections and highly efficient tessellation techniques that lower the level of detail of 3D models with minimal memory usage cost.

Square reckons that the Luminous Studio can reduce game development costs by up to 30 per cent, as well as reducing time on development.

No games have been announced which are based on the engine at the moment, although Final Fantasy XIII Versus is thought to use parts of it.
