Check out Crytek's Latest Work on CryEngine 3

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 56 comments

But can it play CryEngine 3?

The big graphical smash at GDC 2011 was Epic showing off it's insane-looking Unreal Engine 3.975 technology, but it isn't the only game in town. (See that here.)

The talented folks at Crytek are also hard at work on CryEngine 3. There was another new demo released at GDC 2011, showing off the latest from the engine. In addition to showing off some very impressive visuals, we also get to see one of the developers using the animation tools. Check it out below:

    ...no
    just because an engine is platform independent, it doesn't mean it is a port. It will run the same on computers and consoles, with the exception that you can select higher graphical settings on a computer.

    I'll admit, that's pretty cool. Since it's for cinema I'm guessing it's partly to quickly roll out CGI. The tools are very impressive though so I'd like to see if they can speed up detailed game development. Time will tell

    Looks like I'm right on track with upgrading in 2012, just in time to play games released using CryEngine 3.

    Are you kidding me? UE3 doesn't look great AND is a very static engine. We're in 2011 we expect physics.

    40 person mocap could make for some fun mob/group scenes without everybody having the exact same scripted reactions and running style! This could make things pretty interesting.

    LOL Did anyone else get really giddy after watching this? I'm excited to see the games that come out in the next year or two using this engine. Holy cow.

    Finally... something to make all those idiots claiming that CryEngine 3 doesn't have the graphical power Crytek is known for shut up.

    So Crysis 2 is a game with a good engine, crappy textures, low poly models and good effects.

    Can't talk about the gameplay, need the full version.

    I'm happy with the engine, but not the game, for now.
