Marvel Heroes to use Unreal Engine 3

Gazillion has licensed Unreal Engine 3 for its upcoming MMO, Marvel Heroes. According to studio director Jeff Lind, the choice of tech comes down to the engine’s flexible actor components, which have enabled “all kinds of customisations”, while other representatives praised the lighting and quick import of pre-existing assets. Epic seems pretty chuffed about it, with licensing manager Joe Kreiner noting the team grew up with Marvel characters. That is all. The MMO has not been dated.
