Is this the game that will be using the HeroEngine?

AmbikanAmbikan Orlando, FLPosts: 54Member

It was announced on 8/8/2006 that BioWare was the first licensee to use the Simutronics HeroEngine. Is this the game they are using it for?

Waiting for:

-Games-
-Re-Launch of Hellgate:London US/EU Servers
-Diablo 3

-A PvE centric MMORPG with-
-Fast paced twitch-action combat that requires hand-eye coordination, where you can manually aim your attacks instead of having to acquire/lock target(s) first.
-FPS-style WASD and mouse control that determine your overall success when attacking or defending.

    Yep, it 's this one. Using the HeroEngine.

     

    Sadly, not much was shown yet of what they have done with it. Only some pre-Alpha screenies...with waaaaay too big Lightsaber-Handles. Though they've already stated those would be sized down.

    Hmm too much focus on the HeroEngine, might this be why I dont hear anything about Hero's Journey anymore?

    Hero's Journey has about another year left on development, it was delayed whilst they updated the engine for BioWare and other license holders.

    However, after seeing Hero's Journey running I believe BioWare have made the right decision to go with the Hero Engine, it's infinitely more capable than most engines on the market and will suit the linear storyline approach that BioWare are going for with SWTOR.

    Out of these two games utilising the HeroEngine, Hero's Journey definitely sounds the more interesting.

    Dynamic quests tailored to your character? Yes please!!

    Ive often contemplated your in game actions, such as how you do quests (given you have choices) , who you kill etc, how you kill them etc etc, being the determining factor on the type of toon you end up with. ala fable to some extent.

    Didn't see much in the way of it's features when I saw it running, but it looks really pretty and combat seems to be quite fast and varied.

    And that is what TOR is planning to do, too. As far as I understood them anyway. Your actions and how you interact with NPC's/Companions etc will determine your path in the universe and will have effects on you and your associates.

     

    *shrug* That's what they say anyway.
