Russian studio to use engine for upcoming 4x4 game

Avalon Style has licenced Epic's Unreal Engine 3 for use on an upcoming cross-platform title.

Off Road Drive will be launching on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and is the third in its 4x4 Off Road racing series. The company had previously used its own technology, but chose to use UE3 based on its cross-platform support.

“Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 is at the forefront of multiplatform game development,” said Vyacheslav Gordeyev, CEO of Avalon Style.  

“The technology has been successfully used in many critically acclaimed titles, and we feel fully armed to make the first off-road driving simulator on Unreal Engine 3 thanks to its built-in vehicle support, powerful PhysX system, and many other leading edge features.”
 
Mark Rein, vice president of Epic, added: “We’re excited to see Avalon Style combine their background in making realistic off-road driving experiences with our Unreal Engine 3 technology.

"More and more of our licensees are proving that Unreal Engine 3 is not only a great cross-platform engine but also that it can be deployed across multiple genres. This is yet another example of that, and we’re eager to see this game’s release.”
