Having released Modern Combat: Domination on the PS3 a couple of weeks ago, a cracking little downloadable game in its own right, Gameloft have managed to sign up to use the Unreal Engine 3 to release a further 4 titles for PS3, iOS and Android users. If they all turn out like Modern Combat which we reviewed here then we could end up with some very tidy titles over the next couple of years – two in 2011 and a further two in 2012.
“Gameloft is very pleased to partner with Epic, especially with their ability to stay ahead of the curve and continually place the best game engine technology in developers’ hands at any given point in time,” said Julien Fournials, vice president of production, Gameloft. “Using Unreal Engine 3 allows us to push game visuals with remarkable lighting and high-fidelity environments. We are confident that players will enjoy the games powered by Unreal Engine 3.”
“There is no doubt that the four games running on Unreal Engine 3 will be visually stunning and take advantage of the powerful mobile gaming devices,” said Mark Rein, vice president, Epic Games. “We are thrilled to provide our technology to Gameloft and look forward to a lasting collaboration.”
