Discreet now has a licensing agreement with game developers Microsoft and Microids to include gmax consumer customization tools as part of their upcoming game titles. The agreements offer Microsoft and Microids the ability to create gmax game packs for multiple game titles.

With the recent launch of gmax, a product derived from the same code base as the professional game development tool, 3ds max, consumers now have the means to extend the enjoyment of their favorite game titles without having to purchase additional software without any prior expertise in 3D modeling or animation.

Gmax game packs provide developers with the ability to offer a flexible, customizable environment within the game where consumers can create, modify and trade content with fellow players. With the signing of these agreements, gmax now offers consumers the personal ability to stylize levels, actions, characters and objects in simulation, sports and first-person shooter titles.
Microsoft signed an agreement to create, publish and distribute gmax for their upcoming simulation series product releases, including Flight Simulator 2002 Professional Edition. Microids, based in Vélizy, France, has also finalized an agreement with Discreet to ship a gmax game pack for the upcoming 2002 edition of its tennis-themed PC game title.
