More details on GPU PhysX support in Hawken
As revealed in our previous article, online mech-based shooter Hawken, currently under development by indie company Adhesive Games, will include additional GPU accelerated PhysX effects.
In-depth interview, published today on GeForce.com website, sheds more light on GPU PhysX support, and various types of already implemented and upcoming physics effects (apart from other topics).
Lot of the stuff [uses] PhysX Particles, so when players are shooting at walls or other mechs you're going to see debris, you're going to see chunks of stuff go flying everywhere, looking very realistic, and those particles won't just disappear, you're going to see that stuff remaining on the ground, so when a mech takes a big jump off of a building and they land, and the ground cracks, and you see all the debris flying everywhere.Hurray for APEX Turbulence ?
That's one area we're incorporating stuff. Another is the turbulence fields.Finally, APEX Destruction support was mentioned as post-launch enhancement.
We want to get in some more heavy destruction, so when buildings and ships blow up you're going to see debris flying everywhere.To summarize:
Hawken ' promising F2P online shooter in unusual setting, heavy on GPU PhysX effects (Particle and Turbulence at release, Destruction ' post launch), coming out 12 . 12 . 2012.
