NCSOFT WILDSTAR - Hero Engine powered ?
« on: Feb 17, 13, 07:22:45 AM »



Hi there !


I just Took a look at the new NCSOFT game WILDSTAR ...
And very Litle is known About the ENGINE ....

NCSOFT says its a Custom Engine / So its not Unreal ....
Wich actualy they just licenced Unreal4

SO LICENSING Engines is in their Usual Deal ...

But Why not HEro Engine been licensed By NCSOFT AS WELL ?

THIS WILDSTAR to mee it cried HEROO...
Take a Look At the Gameplay And The UI and The Mechanics and the "Rendering look"
Also the Extreme customization of gameplay Mechanics ...
Thing that Hero Does alot well and unicly ..

Doesnt look like its a HEROENGINE ? Licenced and Modified Engine ?



I mean HEROENGINE is one of the Most easy to Customize Engines Outhere ...
WOuld not be Surprising that a Giant MMO Company as NCSOFT Would licence it To develop this game ...

BUT HEROENGINE ( For good or bad ) Got always that "cartoonish DX Rendering look" and that Haze and fog and Overall Graphics That we can Look at Distance and say "Hey this is hero Engine Powered game"

And thats exactly The feeling i got Once i Sow The gameplay Videos ...
It screams to me  Like : "This must be a HEROENGINE  modified System below this game" ... 

Probably no one knows What the engine is Because of NDA deals and such ...
But no one would do a MMO Engine From Scratch ... SO licensing HERO Engine for this game ...
Change it And then say its a "Engine on their own" Must hav ebeen the right Choiše for NCSOFT ..

ITS PURE SPECULATION on my part  ...

Lol...

But they didnt even change the Interface That much ....
And what Engine Would Power This kind of graphics and Giant Seamless levels ?

To Me its HEROENGINE of course ...


CHECK IT OUT !
