The engine is not designed for that.
For some reason this horrendous nonsense keeps being brought up time and again.
It is not possible to design a 3-d engine the does not allow 3-d movement.
Besides this is the same engine as in Champions online.
Champions online HAS complete 3-d movement so claiming the engine does not allow it make no sense at all.
