According tomedia reports, GMC’s upcoming electric Hummer pickup will have something to do with Fortnite. On Wednesday, Epic Gaming announced that the Hummer electric car would be its first car to have a human-machine interface based on Unreal Engine. Unreal Engine’s interface will directly control the Hummer EV’s digital cockpit.
While the new HMI supports the Qualcomm SnapDragon automotive platform, Epic Games is actively working to integrate the BlackBerry QNX and Mapbox for greater support.
All in all, Epic says HMI is incredibly design-driven and offers great flexibility for automakers and even future owners. The video above shows how the driver can use downloadable content to completely change the interface and customize a digital cockpit of his or her own. This should be very attractive to young car buyers.
It remains to be seen how GMC will use the new HMI in hummer EVs, but it sounds like an infinite possibility. Epic promised to release more information about the system when the electric pickup debuts on October 20.
