Epic Games announced that it has licensed its Unreal Engine 4 to YAGER, the independent outfit behind the thinking-person's shooter - Spec Ops: The Line, making YAGER the first independent studio in Europe to license the tech.
“Unreal Engine 4 is, hands down, the best toolset for creating next-generation, AAA games,” said Timo Ullmann, managing director at YAGER. “Unreal Engine 3 enabled our great team to tap its full potential for the development for our award-winning game Spec Ops: The Line and beyond.
“YAGER is thrilled to be utilizing Epic’s latest technology for our foremost project as the new workflow is incredible, and Blueprint visual scripting gives us more control over building our games than ever before.”
Although rather unimpressed by The Line's rather average action, its engrossing, mature narrative made the game one of the must-play titles of last year. You can read our Spec Ops: The Line Review here.
