Ageia adds six PhysX partners
Following the launch of the first retail
PhysX cards yesterday, Ageia is now announcing support for its
physics accelerators from no
less than six new studios and publishers. Three of those companies
are touting support in announced titles. This includes Ukrainian
developer Crazy House, which will support PhysX in its upcoming WW2 tank
simulation game Tank Killer in order to allow "awe-inspiring explosions"
and "totally destructible vehicles and environments." HD Publishing will support PhysX in "all future game titles," as well, including
the upcoming PC version of the real-time strategy game Joint Task Force
in which the company promises similarly destructible environments and
"military vehicles that are modeled down to the last rivet." Kuju
Entertainment will also support PhysX in its upcoming Rail Simulator
train simulation game, although there is no word on what effects the
physics accelerators will enable.
Along with Crazy House, HD Publishing, and Kuju Entertainment, three
other companies—GFI, Illusion Softworks, and NetDevil—have pledged to support PhysX in "upcoming game titles." It's unclear what those game titles will be, however. Nonetheless, the six companies will be joining the long list of developers
and publishers that have announced support for PhysX accelerators.
This list already includes the likes of Epic Games, Microsoft, and
