After two years of development, we are excited to announce our first SpeedTree® 8 product, SpeedTree for Lumberyard, available first to Lumberyard users in the second quarter of 2017.

SpeedTree 8 will bring a revamped workflow featuring more intuitive controls, more precision, and more flexibility in artists modeling work-flow as well as full PBR rendering in the modeler. Game developers will be able to iterate, faster than ever before, on their concepts and ideas to bring those visions to life with unprecedented precision and realism.

“Amazon Lumberyard is an outstanding showcase for the new surface-scanned materials and modeling features that SpeedTree 8 brings to the table,” said Michael Sechrest, co-founder of SpeedTree developer Interactive Data Visualization.

“Our new physically based rendering material workflow, wind algorithms and overall modeling enhancements all shine in the engine,” Sechrest added,  “Lumberyard will be the first to experience the most powerful version of SpeedTree yet.”

SpeedTree for Lumberyard will be demonstrated March 1-3 at the Game Developers Conference 2017 Expo, in San Francisco, at both the SpeedTree booth (#529) and Amazon’s Lumberyard booth (#1602). The release of SpeedTree for Lumberyard will be followed by the launch of other SpeedTree 8 products for the animation and games industries.

“With Amazon Lumberyard, we created a free AAA game engine that’s deeply integrated with AWS and Twitch, so developers can build their boldest visions and engage their fans,” said Eric Schenk, General Manager of Amazon Lumberyard.

“The release of SpeedTree 8 for Lumberyard makes it easier than ever for ambitious developers to build vast and visually stunning worlds. I can’t wait to see what they’ll create.”

New SpeedTree 8 features:

Which will be part of SpeedTree for Lumberyard on the day of launch, include:

Seamless integration with Amazon Lumberyard

Full PBR material workflow and rendering

All new 3D surface-scanned 8K PBR texture library

New techniques for low-poly branch structure modeling and mesh editing

Automatic vertex color painting for Lumberyard wind with in-modeler preview

One-draw-call models with tiling textures, wind, and LOD

New art director tools and more intuitive workflow

Ubisoft, a leader in the gaming industry with studios on five continents, has closed a global partnership deal with SpeedTree for Games to ensure that all development teams have access to the game industry’s most popular vegetation modeling and rendering software.  SpeedTree has been a part of many of Ubisoft’s most ambitious titles over the years, including Ubisoft’s latest hit Watch Dogs 2.

“Ubisoft® has a long-standing partnership with IDV and is now proud to make available SpeedTree to its talented teams across the globe, enabling them to create immersive worlds with even more high quality vegetation,” said Chadi Lebbos, Technology Group Director, Tools and Middleware, Ubisoft.

Watch Dogs 2 features an immersive open-world recreation of San Francisco for gamers to explore, conquer, and hack.  Ubisoft utilized SpeedTree to create the vegetation across the entire game, from cultivated gardens to the the hills overlooking the pacific ocean. SpeedTree for Games is our award-winning middleware tool that has been used in more than 1,000 video games, from AAA titles like Far Cry: Primal or The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt to indie titles made with our UE4 and Unity Subscription Modelers.  SpeedTree has become the vegetation tool of choice for artists and game developers who want complete control as well as the highest possible quality. For more information you can find the full press release on our site.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the deepest integrations of SpeedTree for Games that we’ve seen. CD Projekt Red utilized all aspects of our SDK as well as our modeling software to develop an incredible biodiversity that spans from marshlands to highlands to murky aquatic biomes.  With the release of the final (maybe) chapter in the Witcher series, players can now explore a completely new region filled with even more exotic vegetation made in SpeedTree.

While the first expansion Hearts of Stone took place in No Man’s Land, this new installment is not only twice as long but takes place in the new (and quite large) kingdom of Toussiant.  A decidedly more peaceful landscape than the battlefields of Velen or the treacherous highlands of Skellig, Toussiant takes the variety of foliage in The Witcher 3 to the next level. Untouched by the war, the Mediterranean landscape is a bright and cheerful wine country populated by fantastical plants not found on the mainland.

Flowers, giant mushrooms, and lush ferns clash with the grisly monsters stalking the cheerful courtesans of Toussiant during the 30+ hours of gameplay.  So as you track down monsters or purchase a house, take a moment to admire the great work done by the artists at CD Projekt Red.  They’ve truly created one of the most stunning and cohesive game worlds that we’ve had the pleasure of exploring.

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
