Softimage Develops New 3D Game Pipeline with EA Chicago

Avid Technology announces that its subsidiary Softimage is developing a 3D game development pipeline built on SOFTIMAGE|XSI software in close collaboration with Electronic Arts' Chicago studio. XSI software is an industry-leading 3D modeling and character creation package. The demand for High Definition games for next-generation game consoles that play on today's plasma and LCD widescreen monitors makes 3D game development a much more complex process. Softimage XSI software is built on a unique Gigapolygon core, which excels in managing the 64-bit, high-polygon-count 3D characters and environments needed in HD games. The Softimage XSI-powered workflow will enable game development professionals at EA Chicago to collaborate on complex projects and raise the bar in creating realistic game experiences to meet growing consumer expectations.

Renowned for titles like the popular EA Sports Fight Night series and soon-to-be released Def Jam: Icon, EA Chicago plans to use SOFTIMAGE|XSI software to design high-end characters for an upcoming next-generation game title.
