Battle Engine bundled with GeForceFX2

Water. Explosions. Performance. All are improved.

The PC version of Lost Toys' criminally overlooked Battle Engine Aquila will likely be bundled with the GeForceFX2 (aka NV35, or 'GeForce4 Ultra Ultra') thanks to a deal with OEM specialists Vector OEM, the Guildford-based developer announced at E3. Assuming that manufacturers choose to go for it, you should be able to get your hands on it if you plump for NVIDIA's latest kit from the end of May. The GeForceFX2 PC version of the game was on display at NVIDIA's booth at the show, and includes improved water and explosion effects, and generally enhanced performance. Commenting on the deal, Lost Toys' MD Jeremy Longley says the developer is "pleased with the results".

Improvements the GeForceFX2 brings to the table include the aforementioned water and explosion effects, DirectX 9 optimisations and custom v2.0 pixel shader stuff. However it has to be said that there was murmuring from showgoers that NVIDIA has dropped the ball, perhaps cuing a massive drop kick from ATI's upcoming kit. We'll have to wait and see.
