Tragnarion Taps Epic for Unreal Engine


Tragnarion unleashes Unreal Engine 3 on a new co-op first-person, storyline-driven shooter.

Developer Tragnarion Studios has licensed Unreal Engine 3 for a new cooperative first-person shooter codenamed “The Scourge Project.” Four players can play together, while each individual follows a different personal story.

Carl Jones, head of Tragnarion Studios, chose the Unreal engine because it lives up to its promised standards. “We’ve been amazed at the speed and quality of results on Unreal. We’ve only had the engine for a couple of months, yet we’ve already been able to build a great-looking, fully playable prototype, which we’ll soon show to publishers, featuring our innovative narrative system for multiple players and our unique co-op focused game play mechanics. Every single feature we want is easily implemented in Unreal – for all the major high-end platforms.”

Epic Vice President Mark Rein said, “When we saw the demo that Tragnarion produced, we were really impressed with the progress they had made in such a short time. The high quality visuals, innovative game features and co-operative story have come together in only a few months. It made us very proud to see how quickly they were able to learn Unreal Engine 3 and we can’t wait to get a look at this title again in a few more months.”
