Gears of War studio Epic Games has announced an Unreal Engine 3 reseller agreement with interactive learning solutions company Virtual Heroes, that will see the latter licensing the engine for U.S. and allied government projects.

The Unreal Engine 3 has been integrated into numerous gaming titles, including the likes of Mass Effect 3, Gears of War 3 and Silent Hill: Downpour. It has also been using in a number of non-gaming capacities, such as for construction simulations and driving instructors.

The Unreal Government Network will offer the Unreal Engine for government and civilian use, across secure government and corporate enterprise networks.

A number of UGN projects are already underway. The FBI Academy is using the Unreal Engine 3 to develop a multiplayer crime scene training sim, while an unnamed "top five defense contractor" is utilizing the engine in its model integration.

The engine is also being used to create an anesthesiology training application for Army physicians under the network, while the "HumanSim platform" has been built using the engine, as a means of training medical students.

Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games, explained, "We recognize the growing market needs of our government customers and are excited to have Virtual Heroes provide a full spectrum of focused services and support using our game engine technology."
