Havok PhysicsTM


Engine Integrations

Havok Physics provides world–class physics solutions for real–time applications. More than half of the best–selling titles this console–cycle use core Havok runtime, and our goal is to make Havok Physics available to even more developers and platforms. To further this effort, we have partnered with both Epic Games and Unity to integrate our physics system into their engines.

For existing licensees of Unreal Engine 4, you can find the latest integration available through their official Perforce distribution. The integration also requires that you have access to the Havok SDK, so please contact us to start an evaluation.

We are working closely with Unity to develop an officially supported Havok Physics integration for Unity. This integration will be made available later in 2019.

Interactive Worlds Demand Havok Physics

Havok’s award–winning rigid body physics engine is the most optimized, stable, and widely used piece of middleware in the games industry today. Havok Physics has been a core part of production pipelines for almost two decades, and our game development partners continue to push and refine the technology.
