Hideo Kojima unveils his new Fox game engine

first_imgMetal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima won’t be at E3 this year showing off a new game in the MGS series. That isn’t because he isn’t working on a game, but because most of his time is being spent developing a new cross-platform game engine instead called the Fox Engine.MGS fans may read that and demand to know why he doesn’t get someone else working on the engine. But then we all know Kojima is a perfectionist and that if he intends to use this engine for future games, he wants it to be exactly right.AdChoices广告While there will be no new game on display at E3, GameTrailers did manage to capture some footage of the new engine in action, and it does look lush. The demo shows off a dense forest landscape with the now mandatory HD visuals and a lot of movement going on with the vegetation while the main character runs around.Kojima made it clear this demo was not a game that will be released, it just forms a test area for the development of the engine. However, Kojima Productions will be using the Fox Engine for all future games.The other good news is it is multi-platform meaning we can look forward to simultaneous game releases across Xbox 360 and PS3, but probably PC as well. We’re sure the Wii 2 and other future consoles are being catered for as well.Kojima does have a new game in production, this he confirmed in the video. Is it MGS related? I’m sure his fans hope so, but at the same time the Fox Engine looks like it could handle most concepts he could come up with regardless of whether they form part of the MGS series or not.via GameTrailerslast_img
