CryEngine 3 Video Showcases Stunning Real-Time Next-Gen Graphics

2 min read


So, we recently got to see a how amazing DICE and Battlefield 3’s Frostbite 2 engine was looking and then we also got a peek at the awesome capabilities of Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. So who’s left? Crytek, of course.

This technology showcase from GDC 2011 called CryEngine 3 Cinema shows next-gen real-time footage of some seriously powerful visuals as well as some amazing tools. The best part is that you can get your hands on the engine now.

Watch this first, it’s even more mind-blowing stuff.

So how can you get a piece of this? Simple, just head on over to and apply and if you are lucky, you may just get access to this powerful stuff on your very own PC. If luck isn’t on your side, don’t worry because Crytek will be releasing a free version later this year.

Interestingly, Crytek’s main man Cevat Yerli told CVG that their engine could have been used to make “pretty much any other game” but that rival graphics engines, like Epic’s, would not be able to run Crysis 2.

Phew! Hello smack-talk!
