Is this what Arma 4 will look like? Bohemia Interactive reveals new engine

Bohemia Interactive, the creator of DayZ and the Arma series, has unveiled its new engine–“Enfusion”–with a public website and a video showcasing its impressive capabilities. According to the studio, “any new Arma game” can be made in this engine.

Bohemia’s shooters are intense in simulation, with complex systems and special (and taxing!) graphical fidelity. Bohemia wants to keep Enfusion at a high standard while lowering hardware requirements.

Bohemia stated that Enfusion-built games will run better than ever before. “We want your 16 core PC Master Race builds running smoothly, but we also want everyone to be able to enjoy their content on different builds and console generations.”

Bohemia also looks to make a bigger splash in the console market with its future projects. DayZ’s retail edition was its first console game and was created with an Enfusion prototype (the game was “a mix of old and modern technology,” Bohemia states). Bohemia provided the following information regarding future console releases:

They don’t have [to release on console], but they do have the option, since the engine can run on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox. Enfusion-built games do not have to be “ported” and can be developed simultaneously for all three platforms while sharing a code base and assets.

This quote also reveals the main focus of Bohemia’s announcement, which is ease-of-use and accessibility for developers. Enfusion will allow asset creation using open-source software like Blender. It will also have a modding backend. Bohemia indicated that it would like to embed its mod workshop directly into future games.

Bohemia’s enthusiasm for promoting the developer experience using its new engine suggests that it is interested in modders and other studios adopting it. Bohemia wants to ensure another runaway success in modding, just like DayZ.

Enfusion’s promises stand out in comparison to Epic’s Unreal Engine 5. This was recently demonstrated in the console-only Matrix Awakens demo. Bohemia and Epic promise cutting-edge photorealistic graphics and hardware scalability, which may be a welcome relief for developers and players in this age of silicon shortages and constant crunch.

Enfusion currently employs approximately 30 programmers and engineers. There are eight additional job openings on Bohemia’s site.–add-unlimited-gold-no-survey–add-unlimited-gold-no-survey/c/q30bzdweoh0–how-to-get-free-gems–how-to-get-free-gems/c/ss5B87gmefU
