EA Motive, the studio behind the recent Dead Space remake, has given a brief update on its upcoming Iron Man game, which is being developed in collaboration with Marvel Games. The studio has confirmed that it will use Unreal Engine 5, the latest and most advanced game engine from Epic Games, to create a realistic and immersive experience for Iron Man fans.
Iron Man game is still in early stages of development
According to Patrick Klaus, the general manager of EA Motive, the Iron Man game is still in pre-production and the studio is taking its time to set the best possible foundation for development. Klaus said that the studio is finding many opportunities to explore story, design and gameplay with Iron Man, and that it is exciting to see the fantasy start coming alive.
Klaus also revealed that the studio has put in place a Community Council, which is made up of Iron Man and Marvel fans, who will offer feedback on everything throughout the development process. This is similar to what the studio did with Dead Space, where they consulted with fans of the original game to ensure that they captured the essence and spirit of the horror classic.
Unreal Engine 5 will empower the dev team to work their magic
One of the most interesting details that Klaus shared was that the studio has chosen Unreal Engine 5 as its game engine for the Iron Man project. Unreal Engine 5 is the newest version of the popular game engine that powers many AAA games, such as Fortnite, Gears 5, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Unreal Engine 5 boasts of many impressive features, such as Nanite, which allows for high-fidelity graphics with millions of polygons, and Lumen, which enables dynamic and realistic lighting and shadows.
By using Unreal Engine 5, EA Motive hopes to create a stunning and immersive experience for Iron Man players, who will be able to feel what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man. The studio has not revealed much about the gameplay or story of the game, but it has promised that it will feature an original narrative that will explore different aspects of Tony Stark’s personality and history.
Iron Man game is one of the many Marvel projects in the works
The Iron Man game from EA Motive is one of the many Marvel projects that are currently in development across different studios and platforms. Marvel Games has been expanding its portfolio of games based on its iconic characters and franchises, such as Spider-Man, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Wolverine, Midnight Suns, and more. Marvel Games has also partnered with various publishers and developers, such as Sony, Square Enix, Firaxis, Insomniac Games, Eidos Montreal, and more.
The Iron Man game from EA Motive is expected to be released for PC and consoles sometime in the future. The studio has not announced a release date or window yet, but fans can expect more updates and details in the coming months. The studio has also said that it is working on other original projects that will showcase its creativity and passion for games.
