Steam users and developers can create assets for DoTA 2 or their own games using Maya.
Autodesk has revealed that Maya LT 2015 will be heading to Valve Software’s Steam, delivering a set of animation and modelling features to various gamers, devs and artistes. This will allow them to create their own assets to either use in existing Valve titles like DoTA 2 or create the same for their own games.
Autodesk games solution director Frank Delise stated that, “The Valve community is unique because it includes a very engaged mix of both gamers and developers working together to mod titles and generate content. We hope Maya LT will further that creative spirit and help a Steam user of any skill level to create high quality 3D game assets. We’re engaging with the community on day one by participating in forums, answering questions and offering custom tutorial content for DoTA 2 fans. We can’t wait to try new things with the community and see how they push Maya LT to its limit and beyond.”
Developers who purchase Maya LT will receive a full commercial licence which makes for assets to be available on PC, consoles and mobile platforms. It will be made available on April 22nd for $50 monthly in select countries.
