DSOGaming writes: "Crytek’s UK Artist, Cry-ScottH, has been working on recreating some Bioshock levels in CryEngine 3. We’ve featured an early screenshot of this project in one of our weekly CryEngine 3 galleries, however the artist has released some new screenshots that surely deserve the spotlight."

Only wish more devs used this engine.

I think it costs many millions to license, versus Unreal, which is significantly less and thus why we see it more.

Trenta272321d ago

From what I have read, Unreal ends up taking part of the profits of the game after a quota has been reached. Cryengine is just a flat out fee. Just depends on how successful you think the game is going to be.

ginsunuva2321d ago

Cryengine 3 is free, actually. If devs wish to use it for a commercial product, all they have to do is pay 20% of money made from the Cryengine 3 product to Crytek.

Grap2320d ago

yah and the 20% is too low. i don't care. i have the other 80%. ops there is publisher money. now i am F**ked.

Cryoshock??? Sh*t!! Hurry go trademark it. You'll get a nickle every time somebody says it.

On topic: It looks awesum!!! :O,,,,,l

Oh_Yeah2321d ago (Edited 2321d ago )

yesssss please, im not a fan of the over saturated cartoony look of bioshock. still like the game though

SephirothX212321d ago

No CryEngine 3 SDK is free which includes the c++ code of the game files but not of the editor. If a company uses sdk and sell the game, then they pay 20% of revenue to Crytek. If they want to use the full CryEngine 3 engine with level editor source code, then its about a million for the license.

WeskerChildReborned2321d ago

Well, now we know how a next gen Bioshock remake would look like. Yes, it looks that good.

SilentNegotiator2321d ago

Yes, because its easy to make a game look 10x better when you have no limitations on hardware with your company's supercomputers vs making a game that is expected to run on consoles and the average 2007 consumer PC setup.

HammadTheBeast2321d ago

you get an internets for realistic ideals.

beerkeg2321d ago

He's saying that's what it could like like on next gen consoles SilentNegotiator. Everything you've just talked about has nothing to do with the comment you've replied to.

SilentNegotiator2320d ago (Edited 2320d ago )

He said the game looked "next-gen good" and I followed his comment up by making it clear WHY it looks that good. Don't tell me what's relevant or not, buddy.

beerkeg2320d ago

What you said had nothing to do with what he was talking about. You just wanted to have a little rant. Don't dress it up as anything else, it wasn't relevent.

God this just makes me realize even more how lame UE3 is.

Sony3602321d ago (Edited 2321d ago )

UE3 is actually one of the best engines made this generation. 4 years old and is still being updated, upgraded, and used in most games today.

It's been one of the most versatile, flexible, and easy to use engines for developers for a while.

It's too bad that you, and the 9 people who agreed with you, know nothing about it other than some games being made it it.

mynameisEvil2321d ago

4 years old? RoboBlitz was the first game to use the engine (Gears of War came out a day later) on November 6, 2006. That's nearing 6 years, not four.

But, yes, it is a good engine. However, CryEngine is still a more powerful engine.

DigitalAnalog2320d ago (Edited 2320d ago )

It may be the most flexible engine but I would hardly call it the "best". The games that actually utilizes this engine properly can be counted with my fingers.

modesign2321d ago

they both look identical, the only difference is cryengine has couple more colors.
