LucasArts has announced a multi-year deal to utilize the same engine technology that powers Gears of War.

The new agreement indicates that LucasArts will use the ubiquitous technology of Unreal Engine 3 across all platforms, including mobile, PC, current-gen consoles, and the inevitable next-gen consoles.

"Unreal Engine 3 is a forward-looking solution that shortens the path between inspiration and execution on a wide variety of gaming platforms. We are thrilled to add another exceptional tool to our technology mix," says Zak Phelps, director of technology at LucasArts.
