Cowboys Stadium: Unreal Engine 3 Brings Architecture to Life. Project Details Developer DALLAS, TX—One of the leading architectural firms in the world, HKS, has quietly been revolutionizing the way sports stadiums, luxury hotels and state-of-the art hospitals are being designed.
The company recently signed a licensing deal with Epic Games to bring Unreal Engine 3 into the company’s development process, allowing the clients who spend hundreds of millions of dollars on sports arenas and cutting-edge buildings to see what the final structure will look like in real-time 3D. While most architecture firms still draw up 2D blueprints that require the buyers to use more than their imagination in envisioning the final building, HKS has a team of four architects dedicated to using UE3 to bring one-third of the company’s annual workload (roughly 60 of 300 projects) to life in glorious, lifelike 3D.

Creating a world that is immersive and engaging is not a foreign concept to us. We want you to take part. The story begins here… If you have a PC but no Oculus Rift, no worries. We learned a ton throughout this process. WAY TO GO.

Challenge: One of the biggest challenges in bringing new listeners to Audible is the initial bias that audiobooks “aren’t really my thing.”
This immersive medium is often overlooked by people who lack any experience with the platform. To get more people exposed to the joy of audiobooks, Audible decided to bring ‘Locke & Key’, an acclaimed graphic novel with a cult-like following, to life through a fully dramatized audio production. This title would bring a whole new audience of graphic novel fans to audiobooks. Solution: To give the release the splash it deserved, Audible wanted to create something special for fans so we developed a VR experience that would bring the dark and spooky world of ‘Locke and Key’ to New York Comic Con.
Results: Over 2,000 fans were transported to the ‘Locke and Key’ universe and a share-out feature allowed them to post a split-screen video capture of their experience to their social networks, creating additional buzz.
