CryENGINE 3 released to developers

Crytek’s most powerful, versatile and important engine yet has been released to developers.

CryENGINE 3 is available for a wide spectrum of game projects on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The engine’s legacy is in FPSes – best showcased in the past with the acclaimed 2007 title Crysis – but the Frankfurt-headquartered company has expanded CryENGINE 3’s remit to MMO development as well.

Many developers will be most interested in seeing the new CryENGINE 3 Sandbox level editor, an unfussy professional level-editing tool where the preview pane displays exactly what is seen in a playthrough.

The engine also comes with Live Create, a tool that allows developers to edit games on all available platofrms through a single dev PC.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli hailed the engine as “the best development solution available today and tomorrow.”

Said Yerli: “With its scalable graphics and computation it is next-gen ready and with new features like CryENGINE 3 Live Create the best choice for game developers and companies developing serious games applications alike.

“It is the only game engine solution that enables real-time development and can ensure teams are able to maximise their own creativity, save budget and create greater gaming experiences."
