IDV's foliage tool to be used in 360 and Games for Windows titles

SpeedTree vendor IDV has announced Microsoft Game Studios has signed up to use its foliage-generating tool in a number of titles currently in development.

The games, yet to be announced, will be for 360 and PC. The partnership comes following use of the tool in the Bizarre-developed Project Gotham Racing 3 and 4.

“Our partnership with Microsoft ensures that their customers will continue to experience richer, more enjoyable gaming worlds,” said IDV president Michael Sechrest.

“We are very grateful that our technology will be included with Microsoft’s offerings.”
