Social gaming platform developer Emote and Sweden based Avalanche (Just Cause) have announced a new partnership to create a yet-unnamed "cross format socially enabled game" in the third quarter of this year. The title will be the first to launch on Emote's so-called "PARTICIPATE" platform, which the company says will introduce "a new style of socially enabled game" that is character and community based. For its part, Avalanche will be using its Avalanche 2.0 engine to lend "unparalleled real life landscape technology" to the social gaming title. Emote says games on its PARTICIPATE platform can utilize an "exclusive suite of social features" that it says integrates games and communities and broaden 'participative gaming' experiences. Said Avalanche founder Christofer Sundberg, "We're very excited about this partnership with Emote Games. The PARTICIPATE platform opens the door to a new level of gaming which offers a deeper and more enhanced game experience. The Avalanche technology complements this new genre of gaming by combining the social gaming attributes of PARTICIPATE with our real world landscape architecture to create an amazing life like social gaming experience".
