Middleware developer BabelFlux LLC says online game company Trion World Network has licensed its NavPower AI solution for multiple upcoming titles.
NavPower provides AI pathfinding and motion planning technology for both PC and console platforms. It includes an auto-generation library and a runtime engine that automates stitching of hundreds of meshes for large open worlds.
Trion says the solution minimizes additional work by its content team, making it valuable in the creation of their server-based games. Specifically, Trion aims to publish and develop games as "dynamic broadband service."
"We are thrilled that Trion selected NavPower to help deliver on the promise of creating a new generation of server-based interactive entertainment," says BabelFlux CEO David Miles. "Trion provides another great example of a AAA customer using NavPower to push the boundaries of the videogame experience."
