Deliver unprecedented levels of game complexity and realism to tens of thousands of players

Unlimited Game Performance at Scale

Aether Engine enables game developers to build large and complex multiplayer worlds that sit outside the confines of player counts, entity counts, physics limits and AI limits, without the dependencies or costs typically associated with DevOps teams.

Empowering Developers to Build Cloud-Native Games Without Limits

As players demand richer, more immersive, social experiences, the Hadean solution is designed to invert these traditional constraints and open up new possibilities.

Customer Success

MMO Gaming at Scale

Hadean and creators of EVE Online, CCP Games collaborated on a development workstream called EVE Aether Wars to transform the number of players in the world’s most successful MMO game using Aether Engine. The project culminated in a world record for the “most concurrent players simultaneously involved in a single multiplayer PvP videogame battle.

Building the Future of Cloud-Native Games

Over the course of seven months and three phases, CCP Games were able to supersede the constraints and costs of traditional development methods and develop a larger and richer experience, faster and at a significantly reduced cost. Find out how cloud-native gaming is lifting technical and financial restrictions are lifted, enabling studios to focus almost entirely on the creative process of games design.

Distributed Navigation and Pathfinding

Aether Engine was used to build a distributed navigation system running thousands of individual agents performing pathfinding on a terrain. Results – Allows game developers to support scaling worlds of enormous size, delivered multi-level pathfinding & adaption to dynamic terrain.

Benefits

Hyper Scale Computing
PERFORMANCE AT SCALE

Sophisticated artificial intelligence, high-fidelity and complex physics are computationally intensive and limited in their use. With dynamic, distributed scalability it’s possible to introduce complexity and realism previously considered impossible.

Cloud Native Architecture
SIMPLIFIED OPERATIONS

Hadean eliminates excessive middleware, orchestration and overengineering, allowing game developers to build, ship and scale their applications quickly, effectively and at lower costs to the studio or publisher.

Dynamic Scalability
UNLIMITED PLAYER COUNTS

Current engines can’t support vast numbers of players and struggle to cope with more than a hundred at any given time. Hadean’s distributed network layer, invites unlimited players from across the world, enabling games to truly become a social platform.
