Midway Grabs Unreal Engine 3

Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools set to be development base for Midway's Next-Generation console and PC Games.

Midway Games announced a multi-year licensing agreement with Epic Games giving Midway use of Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools for next generation console and PC game development. Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools are now in use at Midway's internal studios including: Midway's Chicago studio, the makers of NBA Ballers and the Mortal Kombat franchise; Midway's Austin studio, developers of Area 51; and Surreal Software, the creators of The Suffering.

Midway sees this deal as a way of securing front-line positions in the next-generation battlefield and top development technology and talent in the industry. The relationship also allows Midway to build on Unreal Engine 3 technology to create specific tools and assets that will be utilized across all Midway internal studios. This studio-wide effort is expected to be instrumental in the development and progression of major franchises as well as the creation of new game properties. The agreement also underscores Midway's commitment to the premium PC games market.

Hmm might not be a game that even has Unreal in the title. that is a rendering made using the game engine called Unreal 3, The engine name isn't necessarily the same as the game made using it. And that loks f**king amazing, I saw the shots at the site also, really nice; the environments look awesome.

"For something that has a GeForce 6800 as minimum requirements, the unreal engine actually looks pretty shit..."Go to[url removed] watch that. Watch it and tell me it looks like shit. Having seen this, I am acutally surprised the 6800 can even run it at acceptible frame rates.
