Loki Revealed

Cyanide Studios Supports AGEIA PhysX Processor in Upcoming Action RPG Loki (thanks Frans) is a press release from the folks behind the hardware physics processing unit that reveals an unannounced action/RPG called Loki, saying: "AGEIA(TM) Technologies, Inc., the pioneer in hardware-accelerated physics for games, today announced that renowned French developer Cyanide will support the AGEIA PhysX processor in its upcoming ACTION RPG Loki." Here's a bit more of the cat they have let out off the bag:

Loki puts the player in key epochs of history surrounded by legendary heroes, powerful divinities and mythical creatures such as hydrae, dragons and minotaurs. With Loki's extensive population of characters and dynamic real- time action, Cyanide developers chose to optimize the game for the real-time action acceleration of the AGEIA PhysX processor. The dedicated physics processing horsepower of the AGEIA PhysX processor enables much more realistic characters with joints, convexes and other intricate geometry, as well as dazzling real-time effects.

Regardless of whether it gets much support at first, I'd be very unlikely to pick up a first generation card. It's likely to be rather underwhelming.

As for those people thinking they are going to be getting totally destructible environments, dream on. Can't see that happening any time soon.

I'm rather inclined to think you'll just be seeing a lot of extra unnecessary piles of boxes to be knocked over, or a lot of extra wavy grass for those that have the PPU.
