CVG writes: "We all wondered what the "fantastic" UE3 game was all about at Swordfish Studios, when Epic VP Mark Rein said he was "blown away" by an early preview last year. It turned out to be 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and as it happens, game director Julian Widdows was well chuffed by the comments.
"When we heard he was coming we were like 'oh no, we're gonna get killed!' But he was over the moon, we're chuffed about it," Widdows told CVG in an interview.
'We're obviously an Unreal Engine 3 licensee and he just came in for a visit and said 'oh my god, I can't believe you're working on this, it looks phenomenal'. That was it; it wasn't anything particularly formal, he came in to say hello to his licensees and was blown away by it. That was great for us.'"
