Developers at Bohemia have been working hard for the last couple of years to upgrade the rendering and the physical engine of Enfusion, as well as considerably improving performance with a myriad of optimization techniques. In addition, the engine hosts a large number of new features that were specifically requested by Bohemia’s game teams and the request to significantly enhance support for modding. Finally, efforts have been focused on implementing an infrastructure that will support cross-play and user-generated content across various gaming platforms. And these are just a few examples of the team’s last year accomplishments.Bohemia expects to continue working hard throughout 2021 to make Enfusion Bohemia’s most powerful and versatile engine to date, supported by a user-friendly set of development and modding tools.
