Helsinki, Finland – December 1st, 2015 – Umbra announced today that Fallout® 4, the award-winning game from legendary developers Bethesda Game Studios, uses the Umbra 3 Visibility Solution. Released worldwide on November 10th, the game is generating record sales at retail outlets and via digital download for Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and PC.

The Umbra 3 Visibility Solution improves development workflow by enabling both rapid content iteration as well as the creation of more detailed graphics content. The software automatically generates occlusion data from “polygon soup”, enabling artists to use their valuable time on creating graphically impressive game worlds. The spatial data generated by Umbra is not only used for occlusion culling. It also allows audio occlusion as well as streaming in new environments based on player position.

Umbra runs on virtually any modern CPU and it is available for a free evaluation on all major platforms.

In Fallout 4 you play the sole survivor of Vault 111 and enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the New England Wasteland. Welcome home.
