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.

Other Recent Ubisoft games that have used SpeedTree for Games include: 

Far Cry 4
Far Cry: Primal 
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

…a new benchmark for what the Xbox One can achieve visually. -VG247

Forza Horizon 3 isn’t one of the best open-world racing games; it’s one of the best open-world games.- The Verge

The award-winning Forza Horizon 3 has landed on Xbox One and Windows 10, wowing critics and setting a new standard for visuals on the Xbox One. The Horizon series is the counterpart to ever popular Forza Motorsport and unleashes the cars from the constraints of pavement. Instead, the game is set in an open world version of Australia’s Gold Coast with biomes ranging from dense forests to dusty outbacks.  In order to fill the world with life, Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games used the power of SpeedTree to create the vegetation.

The recently released Forza Motorsports: Apex (Also a SpeedTree Title) takes you through a career mode on set race tracks around the world, Horizon puts you in charge of an entire festival and lets you set your own pace. You’re free to spend hours just driving around, race helicopters through dense jungles, or cruise the coast. Die hard racing sim fans or the more casual racers will each find something to love in the wild world of Forza Horizon 3.

SpeedTree has become a staple in both AAA and Indie open world titles as it allows artists to craft a huge variety of trees incredibly fast.  Find out more about SpeedTree for Games at our website.
