Cyanide Studios Supports AGEIA PhysX ProcessorTo be used inupcoming action RPG Loki (December 19, 2005)
AGEIA Technologies, Inc., the pioneer in hardware-accelerated physics for games, today announced that renowned French developer Cyanide will support the AGEIA PhysX processor in its upcoming ACTION RPG Loki. Known for its popular sports titles such as Pro Cycling Manager and Pro Rugby Manager, Cyanide is taking full advantage of AGEIAs PhysX system in its bold leap into the world of role-playing games (RPG).
The AGEIA PhysX processor is designed to work in concert with the CPU and GPU to balance the computing demands of physics, gameplay and graphics in PCs. As a result, gamers can experience unprecedented levels of action, strategy and visuals in next-generation games.
Loki puts the player in key epochs of history surrounded by legendary heroes, powerful divinities and mythical creatures such as hydrae, dragons and minotaurs. With Lokis extensive population of characters and dynamic real-time action, Cyanide developers chose to optimize the game for the real-time action acceleration of the AGEIA PhysX processor. The dedicated physics processing horsepower of the AGEIA PhysX processor enables much more realistic characters with joints, convexes and other intricate geometry, as well as dazzling real-time effects.
AGEIA Technologies, Inc. is a fabless semiconductor company and the pioneer of hardware-accelerated physics for games. Its flagship product, the PhysX processor, is the worlds first dedicated physics processing unit a completely new hardware category. The PhysX processor and supporting software deliver the processing horsepower to calculate real-time interactive worlds. Developers can define these worlds to obey the laws of classical physics, or create their own physical laws that make their game a unique, hyper-dimensional experience.
AGEIA seeks to ignite innovation in the games industry by working with leading developers, publishers, add-in board vendors and console manufacturers to deliver the next generation of physically immersive entertainment. Consumer add-in boards and systems equipped with the AGEIA PhysX processor and games that take advantage of the technology will be available in the coming months.
