Bohemia Interactive, creator of DayZ and Arma series, has launched a new engine-“Enfusion”- Public website And show its impressive video abilityThe studio confirmed that “any potential new Arma game” will be built in the engine.
Bohemian shooting games have a strong tendency to simulate, a complex system combined with impressive (and heavy) graphics fidelity. Bohemia hopes to maintain high standards through Enfusion while reducing hardware requirements.
“Games built with Enfusion will run better than before,” Bohemia said. “We want your 16-core PC Master Race version to sweat, but we also want to make sure that everyone can enjoy their content in various versions and console generations.”
Bohemia also seems to hope to cause more sensation in the console field through its future projects. The retail version of DayZ is the only console game to date, and it was made with a prototype version of Enfusion (the game is “a mix of old and new technologies,” Bohemia said). Regarding the future console version, Bohemia said:
“They don’t have to [release on console] But they can, because the engine can run on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Games built by Enfusion do not need to be’ported’ and can be developed for all three platforms at the same time while sharing common code bases and assets. “
This sentence also leads to another key point of the Bohemia announcement: ease of use for developers. Enfusion will support asset creation through open source programs such as Blender, and will also have a dedicated module backend. Bohemia said it hopes to embed its own module studio directly into its future games.
Bohemia’s developer experience that is so keen to tout its new engine shows me that it is keen on the mod makers and other studios that will adopt it in the future. There is no doubt that Bohemia hopes to do everything possible to prepare for the success of another runaway modification, just like the original iteration of DayZ.
Compared to Epic’s Unreal Engine 5, Enfusion’s promise is particularly interesting, and was recently shown in the console-only Matrix Awakens demo. In addition to the expected cutting-edge photo-realistic graphics, both Epic and Bohemia promise to provide hardware scalability and ease of use for developers, which may provide gratifying relief for developers and players in the era of continued austerity and silicon shortage.
Approximately 30 engineers and programmers are developing Enfusion, and 8 are open Job Offers On the website of Bohemia.
