Nvidia inks 2K Games deal

Publishing label to use PhysX technology in a selection of titles

Nividia has announced that it has concluded a deal with 2K Games that will see its PhysX technology make its way to a selection of the Take-Two publisher's titles.

Borderlands, from Gearbox Software, will be one of the first titles to utilise the real-time physics effects middleware which is compatible with the PC, Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

"We are very impressed with the quality of the PhysX engine and we licensed it so our studios can use this solution early in development," said Jacob Hawley, technology director for 2K in a statement. "Developing games with an interactive story and immersive gameplay remains our number one priority, and aligning with technology leaders like Nvidia allows our teams to concentrate on making great games."

And Ujesh Desai, vice president of GeForce desktop business at Nvidia, added: "Nvidia and 2K Games are dedicated to advancing technology that powers gaming. We look forward to working with the leaders in the industry to bring some amazing new games to market."
