YAGER Development announced that it has selected AI middleware provider Kynogon for their forthcoming next generation action title. YAGER Development's new title uses the Unreal 3 Engine from Epic Games, and is in development for Next Generation Consoles and PC.

"A major reason for selecting Kynapse was the ease with which the SDK was integrated with the Unreal 3 Engine," said Timo Ullmann, Managing Director of YAGER Development. "Kynapse and its streamable, hierarchical pathfinding has given our designers great freedom to include a wide range of different troops and vehicles, and to build complex urban environments."

"The team at YAGER Development have shown a great commitment to produce a game that will make the best use of the next generation hardware," said Pierre Pontevia, CEO of Kynogon. "We are very proud to be working with them on this ambitious project".

Kynogon develops and markets A.I. software for real-time behavior simulation. Kynogon's technology is used by the world's leading game developers (Electronic Arts, Atari, Lionhead Studios, Real Time Worlds, SEGA, Turbine, ...) as well as industry leaders ( EADS, British Aerospace, ...) Kynogon is offering Kynapse, a unique A.I. engine. With Kynapse, Non Player Characters can move around in any 3D dynamic world, understand their environment, hide, communicate, cooperate, drive vehicles, etc.
