Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Thief developer Eidos Montreal has announced the ‘Dawn Engine,’ its new game engine that will act as the “cornerstone” to the development of the studio’s upcoming Deus Ex projects.

A “heavily modified” version of IO Interactive’s Glacier 2 engine, the Dawn Engine features new technology that allows for improved rendering capabilities, real-time physics, and advanced artificial intelligence programming, as well as other things.

“The technology behind any game is a key component in ensuring that gamers are able to develop both an emotional and visceral connection to what they are experiencing within the game world,” said David Anfossi, Studio Head at Eidos-Montréal. “We’ve worked tirelessly over the last few years developing this engine, building upon and improving both the visual and immersive artistry in our games. We truly believe that our engine will help us to strengthen both the gameplay and storytelling experiences we strive to create.”

Eidos Montreal is looking for qualified canidates to join its team and development on the Dawn Engine and its upcoming games. If you’re qualified, you can apply here.
