The world’s first real-time game engine is ready for the big time: Ars Technic
In November, we covered the idea of “real-time” games that allow you to take your game on a journey that spans the world in a single frame of time.
That concept, which uses real-world events to tell a story, has been around for years and has its roots in video games like Diablo and Grand Theft Auto, but it’s only just begun to see a real-life application.
In fact, the idea may even be a bit outdated.
Today, Microsoft announced the first real time engine, codenamed “Turtle”.
And it’s already in the works.
Turtle is an open-source, “multi-core” game engine that runs on Microsoft Azure.
The team behind the engine is led by the likes of Jeff Kaplan, a co-founder of the popular indie game studio Arkane Studios, and John J. Shrout, a Microsoft engineer and former chief architect of Windows.
In short, Turtle is not a game engine.
Its core engine is a bunch of small modules that all work together in an ever-expanding network to create a full-blown game engine, with a new game engine built on top of that core.
Tornado is the first game engine to use this new approach.
In Tornado, you play a superhero fighting the forces of chaos as you fight against a shadowy army led by a mysterious and faceless villain.
The engine is based on Unreal Engine 4, a free-to-play, high-end engine that has been in the game engine spotlight for years.
It’s also a great fit for Microsoft Azure, which offers a full range of games.
The team behind Tornado has been developing a new engine called Tornado Engine 2 for years, but Tornado Engine 3 is a major upgrade.
Tornado Engine 4 has been under development since 2016, but Microsoft’s announcement today makes it the first engine to ship with a fully-fledged new rendering engine.
Tornado 2 already shipped with this new rendering pipeline, but not Tornado Engine 5, which is expected in the next couple of months.
This is an amazing step forward.
Unreal Engine is a powerful and flexible open-sourced game engine with a deep history.
This is the engine that powers Titanfall, Halo Wars 2, and many other titles, and it’s the engine I’d like to work with.
It will be great to see what they come up with in the future.
The developers behind the Unreal Engine, the Unity team, and Unreal Engine are working on new game engines, and this is the start of the next generation.
We’re excited to see the game world become the epic epicenter of the universe and the setting of the world.
That means we have to be ready to go into new territory and create worlds and experiences that will truly capture the imaginations of players.
I am really excited about what this means for us as game developers.
It is an opportunity to redefine the way we work, work on the engine, and deliver experiences that make games more engaging and engaging to the player.
