Havok has announced a new development engine for mobile gaming, Project Anarchy, at this year’s Game Developers Conference.
Launching this Spring, Project Anarchy will include Havok’s large array of physics, animation and AI tools, which are apparently used in breathtaking franchises like Uncharted and Skyrim. Havok’s Vision Engine is also included in the package, and will offer “game samples” and tutorials to help mobile devs create beautiful mobile games.
Project Anarchy, while offering an extensive suite to developers, will be an entirely free download. Unlike a lot of high-end tools like the Unreal Development Kit, there will be no commercial restrictions on the size of a company or how much revenue is earned.
With Havok’s new Project Anarchy game engine and NVIDIA’s Tegra 4, we’ll no doubt be seeing some stunning mobile games in the next few years. Let us know what you think in the comments!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 26, 2013 – At the 2013 Game Developers Conference today, Havok™ unveiled Project Anarchy, a complete end-to-end mobile 3D game production engine.

Project Anarchy will include Havok’s Vision Engine together with access to Havok’s industry-leading suite of Physics, Animation and AI tools as used in cutting-edge franchises such as Skyrim™, Halo, Assassin’s Creed®, Uncharted and Skylanders. The free download will also include a broad range of game samples and tutorials to help the mobile development community hit the ground running.
