Tech Demos From Next-Gen Star Wars Game

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 15, 2007


The folks over at LucasArts are showing off some pretty cool new tech that’s planned for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, planned for next-generation consoles.

The first video shows off the enhanced AI engine (called “Euphoria”) which provides each enemy with a “central nervous system,” which makes them intelligent and emotional reactions to stimuli in their environment:

The second video shows off “Digital Molecular Matter,” which provides objects with much more realistic physical properties than seen in other game engines. Surfaces such as wood don’t simply break into pre-determined pieces, they actually splinter and fragment like they would in real life:

It’s pretty amazing what the hardware in today’s gaming systems can enable. Let’s hope these technologies make it to the final game, and that other developers follow suit.
