Havok, the Emmy award winning Irish technology company that provides interactive software solutions for the global games and entertainment industries, has announced that Havok Vision Engine is now available for development on the Wii U platform.
By this addition, Havok's full product suite is now available to license for the Wii U.
This new offering follows an initial agreement between Havok and Nintendo last March, making free binary downloads of Havok's Physics and Animation technologies available to Nintendo Wii U developers.
In addition to being able to access free binary downloads of Havok Physics and Animation, Wii U developers worldwide can now purchase a source license for any or all of Havok's products including Havok Vision Engine, Havok Physics, Havok Animation, Havok Behavior, Havok Destruction, Havok AI, Havok Cloth, and Havok Script.
"We have shared a long-term partnership with Nintendo and are pleased to offer licensing of our entire product suite for Wii U developers worldwide. With several great Havok-powered launch titles recently released, we are pleased to see Wii U developers pushing the hardware with Havok's tech. We look forward to seeing Havok Vision Engine power some great high-fidelity games on the new platform," said David Coghlan, Managing Director of Havok.
Recent Havok-powered Wii U titles include Darksiders II, Skylanders Giants, Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
