Japan-based electronic commerce and online company DMM.com LLC is pleased to announce that its newest metaverse project, known as Mid Mega City (MMC), is now in development using Unreal Engine 5.
MMC will be the newest and original metaverse which is planned, developed, and will be managed by the DMM Group. Using its experience in foreign exchange, video streaming, and other fields, the company aims to offer a metaverse of unlimited possibilities valued by users globally. Unreal Engine 5 is a 3D computer graphics game engine that was developed by Epic Games.
Daisuke Motohashi has been assigned as the Development Studio Head and Producer for the project. He comes with production and management experience at JP Games and Square Enix and has worked with a selection of gaming platforms, from mobile apps to PCs and consoles.
When asked about his thoughts on the Metaverse MMC Development, Motohashi explained that his goal is to build a more enjoyable and intuitive metaverse that people have always been dreaming of. He hopes to use his technical expertise and knowledge in the gaming field to offer a richly expressive and interactive experience.
On top of that, leveraging the DMM Group’s participation in different fields will allow them to offer unrivaled services that individuals do not know they are missing. He also mentioned that even though the project is still in its infancy stage, he will look forward to speaking with future partners about development, management, and business to establish a metaverse that they can get thrilled about.
Meanwhile, Epic Games representative Takayuki Kawasaki is also thrilled to see that Colonel Motohashi, which is a veteran in the world of game production, and DMM, a service provider of a wide array of services, have partnered for this project.
Motohashi also expressed that he plans on using Unreal Engine 5 to its fullest potential when it comes to productivity and expressiveness. He is also confident that this project will be something unique and is looking forward to seeing everybody in MMC soon.
What makes Unreal Engine 5 so amazing is its base level of visual quality, modularity, and ease of access. Normally, a game engine is the core of the experience. Into the engine, you insert previously made animations and models, audio already made and ready to go. Each of those game elements would be designed externally and imported into the engine. Unreal Engine, particularly UE5, scraps the concept and instead brings it all into one single place.
For metaverse gaming, it indicates smaller development teams can reach even higher. The quality of entry for even solo developers has been increased by the arrival of Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5.
The economy built in the MMC metaverse will be connected to the broad spectrum of offerings of DMM. The company also wishes to offer business partnerships along with external content holders and tech firms. Companies and developers interested in such partnerships are requested to email firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries about MMC development and business opportunities.
