I hope more studios jump on the CE bandwagon instead of always running to Unreal

All looked good, I agree, but one thing stood out to me... A metal bucket was blowing around in the wind, but loose cardboard wouldn't. Just seemed strange not to just make that happen for the demo.

MurDocINC1068d ago

I wish to see better indie licensing.

@NYC_Gamer:

that's all fine and dandy but a license per year for CE is about 1.2M if i remember correctly, and not sure about thee price of UE

but engines aren't just about looks - engines can be optimised for different genres/viewpoints, believe it or not.

for example you see Crysis, Far cry, sniper ghost warrior. All run on CE and all, are first person. It's possible that they are trying to broaden their engine by making third person support a thing, Ryse, Rime. But other than those to most CE games are fp.

Now look at UE.
Near enough ALL games that run on UE are third person. name pretty mnuch any game that is running on UE and it'll be 3rd, Gears, Army of 2 Batman series and even Murdered: Soul Suspect. so yeah, UE is made for tp support while CE focuses on 1st for the moment.
more studios should - if they plan on making first person.
:)
Sorry to be the killjoy ;)

GarrusVakarian1069d ago

Me too, it should become the main engine for devs in next gen games.

DigitalAnalog1069d ago

I think they are. Isn't the new PS4 exclusive "Everybody returns to Rapture" using the CE?

H0RSE1069d ago

But aren't Crytek games notorious for being resource hogs and pushing even the highest end systems to the limit? Yes, Cryengine games looks phenomenal (if you can run them,) but at such a high cost to the system, is it worth it?

I was always a fan of the Source Engine, and am looking forward to more details on Valve's new iteration.

I have to admit there for a while EVERYONE seemed to be using the Unreal engine and Every. Single. GAME. looked the same (at least to me), it didn't matter who was making it.

The new thing that seems to be popular is solar flares, water droplets, sparks, dirt, smoke and whatever else the Devs can come up with obscuring your vision, I personally can't stand that, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.
I didn't finish the last Battlefield SP because of that, it seemed like every single light-source in that game was designed to blind you, it drove me absolutely nuts.

SITH1069d ago

Star Citizen is using cry engine.

I_am_Batman1069d ago

I think we should see much more variaty in engines next gen. There are already so many great looking engines for next gen games like the Unreal Engine, Cry Engine, Snowdrop Engine (the Division), Fox Engine (MGS5), Luminous Engine (Agni's philosophy), Panta Rhei-Engine (Deep Down) and many more.

Skate-AK1069d ago

But only Unreal and Cryengine will be licensed out of that list. The other engines are all in house.

ATi_Elite1069d ago

The CryEngine is such a BEAST. It completely blows the Unreal Engine out the water PLUS you can program for 3 platforms simultaneously on the CryEngine.

Dear Devs: Use the Got Dam CryEngine cause the Unreal Engine is Real CRAP!

Plus the CryEngine is good for Mods too.

Look for StarCitizen (PC Exclusive) to push the boundaries of the CryEngine 3 like no game has before it in 2014

I_am_Batman1068d ago

The Unreal Engine isn't crap. You can program for 3 platforms simultaniously on it as well. In fact UE had this feature before the Cry Engine. I think the Cry Engine is superior in terms of looks but the UE isn't crap.

Muffins12231069d ago

Well unreal is half the price.

Soulscare1069d ago

Never been a huge fan of Crytek, but CE is a great engine, much better than Unreal. Obviously we haven't seen any Unreal 4 games yet, but I doubt they're going to beat CE.

duplissi1068d ago

I dunno the unreal 4 demos seem to rival crysis 3 in visuals (when crysis 3 is maxxed out).

jameson123451069d ago

I hope both become more common. It is always better to have diversity game engine wise when possible, especially in the major AAA devs that can afford it.

Gamer19821069d ago (Edited 1069d ago )

I hope they don't the CE is always badly optimized for everything just look at crysis for a perfect example you get games like battlefield looking just as good and only needing half as good hardware. Why you think that is? Because the engine is a LOT better and thats because the devs are better. Theres a reason people use Crysis for benchmarking there new cards on PC and not games like battlefield. Frostbite is a lot better engine and I would prefer it in more games..

But can Crytek make a good game?

ABeastNamedTariq1069d ago (Edited 1069d ago )

No, but they make a damn good tech demo! :P

EDIT:

@n4rc

I was kidding lol. They've made some good games, but lately they seem to being going with style and graphics over substance and depth, in my opinion. Gameplay doesn't do it for me. It's boring to me.

n4rc1069d ago

i didnt find crysis to be bad... just not a huge fan of the halo-ish 30 bullets to kill someone

DaGR8JIBRALTAR1069d ago

that's what scares me about ryse...looks great,but could end up being boring as fcuk.

Master-H1069d ago

We'll see if they can prove themselves with Ryse: the Son of Rome

Muffins12231069d ago

Fuck you time spliters was pretty good and crysis 3 was better than most fps

Anonagrog1069d ago

Just wanted to clarify that 'Timesplitters' was made by 'Free Radical'. Crytek purchased them several years after.

Gamer19821069d ago

Indeed Cytek never made it and most the free radical team have actually left Crytek now.

Looks awesome, hope it's put to good use out there when the new systems are released.

falcon971069d ago

Real gamers want gameplay that challenges you if you play games with amazing graphics they normally have poor un-challenging gameplay ?? not always though ?

WorldGamer1068d ago

I'm sorry sir/miss, I don't get the relevance of your comment when it comes to what I said. I just hope developers leverage the features show effectively is all.

Maybe I'm missing something.

ABeastNamedTariq1069d ago

That was great! Can't wait to see more games using this.

n4rc1069d ago

damn... watching the 1080p vid on my big tv..

absolutely stunning..
