Gears of War teaches Epic, UT3 benefits

ut3Founder Tim Sweeney, and the rest of the team at Epic, have learned much from the blockbuster Xbox 360 title, Gears of War. Now, Sweeney says that Unreal Tournament 3 will benefit from these lessons.

"The Gears of War experience on Xbox 360 taught us to optimize for multi-core, and to improve the low-level performance of the key engine systems. This has carried over very well to PC," said Sweeney. "Also, the 360 work we did resulted in an engine that also runs well on low-end and mid-range PCs. This is very important for games today; the high-end PC gaming market alone is not big enough to support next-generation games with budgets in the USD 10-20 million range," he added.

Since UT3 will be coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3, as well as the PC, it is important that it run well in all environments. Gamers can expect to play the game this fall.
