BioWare used Idea Fabrik’s development platform HeroEngine to help create its huge MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Fabrik said the SWTOR developer chose its engine because of its “integrated offering of development tools that provide live collaborative development and real-time updates”.
HeroEngine is a 3D game engine and server technology platform designed for creating MMO-style games.
SWTOR marks the first “major release” of a game built using the tool.
The middleware provider also revealed that Zenimax is using the engine as part of development on an as yet unannounced MMO.
