Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 to utilize Havok
Popular engine for physics, animations, and cloth will be used this year
Havok has announced that it is working with Konami Digital Entertainment to provide advanced physics, animation and cloth simulation technologies in Pro Evolution Soccer 2014.
“Player movements and physics are key components of a lively game, so it’s a true honor for Havok to power these elements in Konami’s incredible PES 2014,” said Arnaud Saint-Martin, Asia Regional Director at Havok.
PES 2014 promises advanced Havok Physics, Havok Animation Studio and Havok Cloth technology, for a comprehensive simulation of each on-field player. Each player’s movements are represented according to the individual players’ mass and physique, and each uniform reacts realistically according to the players’ moves and speed.
The news further amplifies the tech behind this year's soccer title, which is already set to use the brand new FOX Engine from Kojima Productions.
PES 2014 will launch this Fall on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
