Crytek released new screenshots of their new CryEngine 3.
add AI. add gameplay. add explosions. and other factors. and hope, it still holds strong to the scenic view.
which will be the struggle for consoles. interested to see how it all pans out. Crysis was a beautiful game to watch, and also quite fun to play. MP aside.
Ha, I went back yesterday and played Warhead. At least I found some settings where I can play that on max now. It is gorgeous, I have to admit. But I am somewhat disappointed by the water. It looks so great, but got no fluid dynamics what so ever (no character interaction, etc). The waterfall looks nice - from the distance (as long as you don't walk through/over it). Stronghold is the jungle environment and interaction, and the physics engine.
Ju, that's because of the scale of the game. Games like Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2 can do it because they are relatively small in scale, but it would be very expensive to do it in Crysis.
wow.....simply amazing.... i am impressed still with crysis and crysis warhead but this looks even better.. cant wait for crysis 2
I can't wait for developers to start using this engine.
This is destined to be the next video card melter. Let's just hope we can run it : )
Actually, it is more optimized, therefore will not be any more taxing on your system than the last Cryengine. Remember - the goal of this engine was for consoles to be able to pull of decent visuals. The video you just watched is actually running close to medium settings on a PC. (which is pretty good considering how old the consoles are in terms of hardware) Still, the consoles are in for a real treat with this engine. And PC users are in for a treat because the engine will scale better on lower end/outdated hardware.
It's actually likely to scale on less hardware since it switched over to a deferred renderer. That means it'll be SM3.0 and above, not SM2.0 like Crysis was, so anything below a 1xxx ATI card or 7xxx Nvidia wont be ablt to even play it.
O.O <-------That is literally what my face looked like when I saw the first picture of the island. That engine looks insane...god now I am happy I'm playing my PC more. gotta get ready for the cry-engine 3.
where is my 5870x2 ati?
Fanboys typical comment "by the time such n such happens, MS will already have their xbox720 out". Why in such a hurry? Face it. Even MS admitted we wont see next gen any earlier than 2012. Fingers crossed devs deliver on those footages.
Looks fantastic! But I wonder how itll hold with AI, explosions...
for any platform although pc fans have convinced themselves that this engine looks better than the top engines out
you are delusional.
There is no other game engine that comes close to this. Its not over rated. It's simply the best looking game engine out. Now the game might be over rated but as the game engine goes, its the mist advanced engine out with the best visuals.
i just aint got on pc goggles and arent brainwashed like a pc fan slave
Tell us what game engine even comes close to the realism and fidelity as the Cyengine? Please don't state KZ2 or UC2. Those look amazing but Cryengine does more and looks more realistic.
