MMO developer Mythic Entertainment, creator of the Dark Age of Camelot and the forthcoming Warhammer Online, has announced a publisher-wide licensing agreement with hardware and tools company Ageia in which Mythic can fully exploit the power of Ageia physX technology in developing its massively-multiplayer online role playing games. According to the statement, Mythic will make extensive use of the Ageia physX SDK in developing Warhammer Online, which will be released as an MMO for the first time in 2007. Players who have PCs equipped with the Ageia physX processor, which will be available on PC add-in boards from late 2005, will experience extra immersiveness and effects in the title. "At Mythic, we strive to continually upgrade our technology and improve the game experience for our online communities, and Ageia's physX technology adds a new dimension that will make Warhammer an incredible online adventure," said Mark Jacobs, president and CEO of Mythic Entertainment. "Mythic Entertainment is a proven leader in the rapidly growing market for online games, and an excellent partner for introducing Ageia physX technology to this target audience," said Kathy Schoback, vice president of content acquisition at Ageia. "With the dedication and talent of the Mythic team, we have high expectations for what they can achieve with Warhammer using the Ageia physX SDK and the Ageia physX processor."
