According to a press release sent to Examiner.com today, Enlighten will now be available to all developers who are working on PlayStation 4 games, which will help creators bring real-time global illumination to games that utilize its tech.

Previous titles that have used the technology are games such as: "Battlefield 3," "Need for Speed: The Run," "Eve Online" and "Medal of Honor Warfighter."

The upcoming title "Dragon Age 3" will also join the list of games to be featuring the next-generation tech.

Geomerics’ founder Dr. Chris Doran talked about what it means to the company to be working with the next-generation of games.

"We are delighted to be working on PlayStation 4. The hardware is everything we were hoping for in a next-generation console, and a huge step forward from the current generation.

"Real-time global illumination was a big deal for games running on the current generation of hardware, but it required developers to make some compromises. With PlayStation 4, those days are behind us.

"We can finally unleash the full power of Enlighten, and allow game developers working on PlayStation 4 games to bring far deeper levels of dynamism and quality to game lighting. We cannot wait to see what developers produce with Enlighten," Doran said.
