CryEngine 3 showcases next-generation, revolutionary soft-body physics

DSOGaming writes: "Ah, the power of CryEngine 3. Such an amazing engine with tremendous potential that has not been properly used. It’s sad to be honest because the following physics are what we can expect from next-generation titles. Team BeamNG showcased some amazing soft-body physics that are powered by CryEngine3. According to the team, anything can be built in the Beam physics system – cars, trucks, planes, boats, trains, cranes, tanks, helicopters, and even destructible map objects and crash test dummies. As the team suggests ‘it’s all real physics and anything is possible‘. What you’re about to see is real-time, so keep that in mind. Oh, and this is still an early work in progress so don’t mind the shading and collision issues as the team is already working on fixing them. Enjoy your first glimpse at next-generation physics everyone!"

Truly amazing. Now one thing that has always bothered me since games left the 2D era is clipping. I can't stand when objects clip through other objects. Whether it be your characters legs going through a wall when prone or as seen in this video, parts/pieces of the track clipping through other parts/walls.

This is something devs need to work on soon. It's a big annoyance.

Yeap, the team is already working on the collisions and the clipping issues ;)

It's tricky to solve with high speed objects. The faster something is moving, the more it 'clips' the only way to solve it in real time is run the physics simulations at a faster frame rate.

very cool cant wait to see some new non crysis games that really start exploring the specifics of this amazing engine along with these new features!

Damn, finally a fix to something that I've always hated. It always takes me out of the experience when I get in a vehicle and it's always invincible or really static and boring.

That's incredibly awesome.

Hufandpuf2153d ago

Really nice. but I hate when the Devs show off this kind of tech then just make a mediocre FPS with only good graphics. I'm looking at you Crysis 2!

The hell are you talking about
