BlackFoot Studios has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Epic Games to license the Unreal Engine 3 for its upcoming military tactical action title Sky Gods.

In development for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Sky Gods will focus on a complete cooperative experience which centres on Special Forces operations, specifically HALO (High Altitude, Low Opening) and helicopter insertion missions.

"A nicely proven engine solution makes it feasible for us to release our first title, Sky Gods, on multiple platforms," said John Sonedecker, founder of BlackFoot Studios. "Unreal Engine 3 is proven on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with an art pipeline that allows for easy cross-platform development and drastically reduces the effort and costs involved with releasing a title on both PC and consoles."

BlackFoot plans to release Sky Gods worldwide via digital distribution in the first quarter of 2009.
