Gazillion Supercharges, the people behind the upcoming Marvel Heroes PC game has just announced that the MMO will be made using the Unreal Engine 3. Gamers will be able to use the power of UE3 to play as characters such as Captain America, Spider-man and Iron man.
“We love Unreal Engine 3’s streaming system. It’s made our entire technical approach possible and is easy to work with,” said Jeff Lind, studio director of Gazillion’s Secret Identity Studios. “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.”
Secret Identity Studios Art Director Josh Book added, “Our artists love the Unreal Content Browser, the visual art pipeline, and how functional UE3 is with different 3D packages. We had assets in the game within hours of starting work with the engine. In addition, Unreal Lightmass is a very advanced global illumination tool that has helped push the look of our game further than we thought it could go.”
There is currently no release date for the Marvel Heroes MMO, but expect to hear soon.
