Hardware and software physics company Ageia Technologies has announced that Russian game developer and publisher Akella will integrate the Ageia PhysX SDK into its upcoming titles. The announcement came at the Russian Developers Conference, which is taking place from April 7-8 in Moscow.

Akella will provide support for the Ageia PhysX processor in its upcoming games, the first of which will be Captain Blood, an action game based on the novels by Rafael Sabatini in which gamers play the role of a pirate movie hero. The company has made a name for itself with past pirate adventures such as Sea Dogs and Pirates of the Caribbean, the first Russian game developed under a Hollywood license.

Its amazing what you can do with hardware-accelerated physics, and we intend to use Ageia PhysX technology for enhanced realism and gameplay in our upcoming titles, said Dmitry Arkhipov, vice president of development for Akella. Our agreement with Ageia is a natural step in our goal of providing gamers with the most intense, immersive gaming experience possible.

The Ageia PhysX processor is available now in game PCs from Dell, Alienware and Falcon Northwest, and on add-in boards from ASUS and BFG Technologies starting in May 2006.
