Irish award-winning games technology company, Havok, today said that it is providing its 3D interactive game development technology to a suite of Ubisoft's most hotly-anticipated titles.
These include Assassin's Creed Unity, The Crew, Tom Clancy's The Division, Far Cry 4 and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.
Havok Physics is also used to power Ubisoft's fastest-selling open world action adventure-game, Watch Dogs.
With a legacy of powering the industry's most influential titles, Havok Physics continues to be the solution that leading studios turn to for dynamic physical simulation and realistic gameplay.

Havok's technology has helped Ubisoft's development teams to create the realistically compelling Revolutionary world of Assassin's Creed Unity, the massive open-world recreation of the United States in The Crew, the ravaged ruins of New York City in Tom Clancy's The Division, the wickedly dangerous Himalayan land of Kyrat in Far Cry 4, and the intense fire fights of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Havok's tools offer fast and consistent performance across multiple platforms, easing the transition for each project from one system architecture to the next.
