LucasArts Acquires Unreal Engine 3

In case you have been living under a rock or a country that hates video game..."Yes I am looking at you China!", let me tell you about a little thing called Unreal Engine 3. This thing is going to revolutionize the way we enjoy games and overall 3D animation, with some of the greatest lighting textures I have ever seen. Since it is tough to put into words let this tech demo show you what my words cannot portray.

Now this video is a little older somewhere around 6 or 7 months old, but you can understand how stunning things are going to look. Since we got that out of the way let us now discuss LucasArts, the company responsible for almost every single Star Wars game you can think of. While I have not truly loved any of their games since Gladius and Star Wars Battlefront, there is no denying that this company can do great things. Star Wars Force Unleashed pushed the envelope for gaming physics and environments, changing the way people interact with their games. Can LucasArts utilize the new Unreal Engine 3? Yes, but they have to start remaking some of their classics and stop clinging to the whole Star Wars/Lego thing. My hopes are high for another awesome Gladiator game or Star Wars Battlefront 3/ a remake.
