Crysis 3 tech video demos the engine behind FPS franchise's latest

VIDEO: Crytek shows off CryEngine 3

Crytek has released a Crysis 3 trailer showing off the powerful new engine behind the latest addition to their best-selling first-person shooter franchise.

CryEngine 3 is the newest version of a game engine that seemed photo-realistic in its first incarnation, and has gotten a step closer to that lofty goal with a host of new features.

The video shows the remnants of a one-time metropolis overgrown with lush vegetation, a mix that harkens back to the first two games in the series.

In terms of a tech trailer, it seems to cast CryEngine 3 as a more flexible developer environment, ready for use in both next and current generation titles: online, offline or free-to-play.

New features include real-time volumetric fog and cloud shadow pixel-accurate displacement mapping, tessellated vegetation, unlimited particle FX lighting, integrated cloth and vegetation simulation, and perhaps most important of all – "top secret tessellated toad tech".

Frogger will never be the same again.
