has announced a collaboration with e frontier Inc.
to utilize their Shade 10 and Shade Home Design software to bring a variety of architecture home designs into Blue Mars, a massively multiplayer virtual world based on the CryENGINE 2 from Crytek
. Using Shade 10 and Shade Home Design, players will easily create realistic home models and have access to a vast library of highly detailed 3D objects such as furniture, musical instruments, cars and buildings. Blue Mars occupants will have the opportunity to virtually design and inhabit their homes with these objects before actually purchasing the property. Blue Mars will launch in beta version at the end of this year. New screenshots
