Havok announced today that Lionhead Studios have licensed Havok Complete for use in the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive RPG, Fable 2. The sequel to the hit Xbox and PC title is once again being headed up by famed game creator Peter Molyneux, the man behind Black and White, The Movies, and Populous.
As the chief executive officer of Lionhead Studios, Peter Molyneux chimed in on the merits of using the Havok engine. "Using Havok's technology means that we don't have to worry about finding an efficient way to do all the complex physics calculations ourselves that are required to create a huge, vibrant, real time and persistent virtual world such as the one we're creating for Fable 2. By using Havok, we bypass a lot of the heavy physics maths and concentrate our teams more on the creative and innovative elements of the game."
