CryEngine for FF7 Remake

After a lot of research into Unity, Source, Unreal and CryEngine as possible game engines for FF7 Remake, I’ve decided to stick with CryEngine 3. It offers the best graphics performance and can easily handle the vast landscape of Midgar in realtime. (Cryengine 3, Dev, Final Fantasy VII, PC, Square Enix)

Final Fantasy VII CryEngine 3 tech demo coming soon hopefully.

Pretty curious how it plays out.

A Final Fantasy VI tech demo would be even more interesting to see imo with the mecha suits marching in the snow blizzard toward to the first town in the game.

coolest FF intro ever -

Ugh you just reminded me of the terrible PS1 port of FF6 that I had with the real bad loading times for menus -_- I had a Genesis during the 16-bit times, I bought a SNES just for the RPG games such as FF6 because the load times on the PS1 version were so bad lol.

But yeah I was pretty impressed with how the intro on FF6 was handled. It would be pretty cool to see that remade, problem is it was originally made with the SNES Mode-7 mode which does not really display much detail unlike the fully 3D FF7 intro which probably why we never see demos of the FF6 one. :(

well FF10 had also a pretty awesome intro...and FF8...and even FF9
SkullBlade169  +   1309d ago
I agree with you on FF8. I've not played much of FF9 so can't say on that.

It would be pretty epic seeing the landing on dollet or even the actual FF8 intro in HD.

FF10 would be pretty good too with the Zanarkand intro, but FF8's landing on dollet would be awesome, I never thought about it until you just mentioned it lol :P

Hehe not bad vid for snes

This is my fav from FF series (not an intro but pretty decent as a ff vid)

This is the intro for the same game, also pretty solid

If they were to remake FF7 in cryengine they should try and make it look like this :D

(SPOIlERS if youve not seen the movie)

If they want to throw away over a million dollars on a remake right out of the gate...

Cryengine 3 would be nice for FF7.

I have lots of respect for the cryteck cry engine for its advance graphical output in making games detail like our world itself and I have faith it would make the FF7 remake look stunning on the PS3 or PS4 console. Whatever playstation version I will pick this game up because it can never get old for all eternity. This game will be fresh for now and forever.

Like the story of romeo and juliet, this Playstation 1 classic will be remembered for the rest of mankinds history on earth.

I hope this guy succeeds. It's not the first time capable fans have attempted something like this? Remember the Chrono Trigger remake? It was coming along well and then SquareEnix shut them down.
dumahim  +   1309d ago
Awesome that he wants to try. Just don't think it'll get close to being finished. Would love to be wrong though.
deletingthis34675334  +   1309d ago
Good luck. Just beware of Square-Enix though. They would likely shut your game down like they did the 3D fan remake of Chrono Trigger.
DJ  +   1309d ago
It looks like they might have shut down the older FF7 remake (with Unreal Engine). Wuhoh.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1309d ago
Yeah I don't even understand why people even bother. I mean it's cool and all, but SE will just shut it down.
Xof  +   1309d ago
I don't understand why people want an FF7 remake using the Advent Children aesthetic. AC demonstrated a casual disregard for the characters and ambience of the game.

Nor do I understand why Final Fantasy fans want another big-budget FF game based around ridiculously high-end visuals.

Of all people, you'd think they'd have figured out by now that superior fidelity =/= superior content, and more often than not results in inferior content.
pandehz  +   1309d ago
Nope ppl want superior fidelity +superior content and AC aesthetic is pretty good. There is no ideal aesthetic, it was the artists choice.
Linsolv  +   1309d ago
That's just not true. Bad writing leads to inferior content. A focus on graphics at the expense of writing leads to inferior content.

But if you can focus on both (and it can be done; see, for example: Batman Arkham City, FF9--which was incredible for the PSX, Witcher 2) then you can have a great game with looks to match.

lol pc exclusive though kinds will suck for console gamers then.
avengers1978  +   1309d ago
Why wouldn't they just make it on the new square engine... Plus i'm pretty sure they have already said they are not remaking FF7,
Voxelman  +   1309d ago
they are going to get cease and desisted so fast...
WeskerChildReborned  +   1309d ago
That's cool
WitWolfy  +   1309d ago
I love it when fans take the next steps themselves to remind devs why we choose to support them in the first place.
blackhammer  +   1308d ago
Make it. Release it. Don't care if it gets shut down and continue developing it. Put the shit on every torrent site one can find.

Square Enix be damned, and they certainly are.
