Epic Games is hitting the road with the Hummer EV. Unreal Engine — which is the game engine for Fortnite — will power the interface for GMC’s all-electric Hummer that is set to be unveiled on Oct. 20.

A piece of the integration of Unreal Engine into cars is “based on a prediction that autonomous vehicles will one day make the act of driving less important than the activities you can do in the car.” An example presented includes games exclusive to an automaker’s user.

In August, Epic Games was valued at $17.4 billion following a $1.78 billion fundraise, which included a $250 million investment from Sony. The company is also in a legal battle against Apple’s App store rules — the trial will begin next summer.

Video Game Headlines:

  • “Stalk” market investors from Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons are apparently making their way to the real stock market
  • GameStop signed a multi-year agreement to use Microsoft’s cloud service for business operations. 
  • Riot Games announced it’s closing its office in Sydney, and shutting down the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League for “not meeting goals.” 
  • Activision Blizzard is closing its French office.
