Climax engine to power motorsports

BritSoft developers unveil their new PlayStation 2 game engine

British developers Climax have been busy chaps recently, and their latest announcement has revealed a new PlayStation 2 game engine known as "Climax Motorsports". As the name suggests, it's been designed by Climax's Brighton office and is intended specifically for motor racing games, whether they be track based, off-road, urban or free range. Climax are claiming that the engine can handle twenty cars on screen at once without any slowdown, and an impressive polygon throughput of 320,000 triangles per frame. All of this comes with a range of special effects, including everything from motion blur and heat haze to motion captured spectators! Certainly what little we've seen of it so far looks quietly impressive, and hopefully we should know more soon. In the meantime, feast your eyes on these brand new screenshots of the engine in action.
