Rebellion’s Asura engine is all systems go on NGP

Rebellion’s internal game engine Asura has now been fully adapted for Sony’s Next Generation Portable (NGP), the developer has revealed.

According to Rebellion, the swanky tech is now up and running on the new hardware in the form of a fully playable demo of a “multiplayer third person shooter.”

The reason why the tech’s been adapted for the pint-sized platform so quickly is due to the fact Asura doesn’t require middleware for elements such as physics or lightning.

Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley, commented: "The technology, design and art teams have worked incredibly well with Sony’s newest device. We have managed to make our engine fully functional, and looking great on the hardware in double quick time. We’ll be attending DICE and GDC to show what we have created and look for business partners."
