Feature: And it's worth celebrating.

Photorealism Is Crucial To Games

Global illumination. Volumetric clouds. Sub-surface scattering. These are words that make me hot. But I know this feeling is forbidden. I should care about games, not the empty pursuit of photorealism. But oh my, it’s so exciting, and not empty. In fact, I think that right now photorealism is becoming crucial to games, and that we should celebrate it.

Crytek & Epic’s Tastes Of Tomorrow

Jim, John and Nathan are all out at GDC for RPS right now, but the lack of any news from them so far leads me to presume they are all either dead, kidnapped, hungover, hiding or trapped inside a branch of The Cheesecake Factory. So, while I've not been out there to see and thus usefully report on any of the following myself, I can…

Feature: Through The Looking At Games Glass

They’re All Like This: The Weird Land Of Preview Events

Last week we sent Cara to an EA event to look at a few of their games. This spawned her splendid Crysis 3 interview, but the price was another day spent in the bemusing otherworld of videogame preview events. Earlier, gazing around the room at massive screens with Army of Two and Fuse on them, I was experiencing a sense of huge disconnect with my…

Feature: Wherefore Warface?

Crytek’s CEO On Crysis 4, Homefront 2, The Future

If you climb to the top of Mt Videogameland, you'll see that Crysis 3 is just over the thoroughly tessellated, HDR-lit horizon. That, however, is hardly the only thing that's got Crytek's tear-powered mega-lair whirring along at maximum efficiency. There's also Homefront 2, Warface, Ryse, an entire F2P social platform, piracy concerns, and a brand new Crysis - which is totally not Crysis 4, but…

Hue & Cry: Crytek Talk Crysis 3 Multiplayer

Crysis 3 producer Mike Read has been talking about the new modes for the upcoming game, and you can see them in action below. I've no real idea how popular the Crysis multiplayer modes have been over the years. I've played all of them, but, well, I can't ever remember anyone talking about them after release. Mods yes, but vanilla multiplayer? No. Anyone out there…

Maximum Graphics: Crysis 3 To Support DX11

It was the night before Crysis 2's launch, and all through Crytek, not a creature was stirring - not even a fry... tech. But then, in the midst of laying down for the extended cryogenic sleep that traditionally follows Crytek's development crunches, one developer bolted upright. "Everyone," he turned and said to the others, nestled in their infernal healing contraptions, "I feel like something's missing."…

Feature: "a rainforest beyond a real rainforest and a city beyond a real city"

Crytek On Fusing Crysis 1, Crysis 2, And District 9

Many people set their furrowed brows to maximum anger (known in some places as a warface) and rallied against Crysis 2. I wasn't one of them. It was, in many ways, a far more directed experience than Crysis 1, but it was still far from being Modern Warfare in a snazzy pair of robo-pants. That said, when word got out that Crysis 3 was aiming…

Bows Are The New Guns: Crysis 3 VideoTrailer

The hunted becomes the hunter! The ruined city is reclaimed! Stealth, bows, arrows, BWAARRR, painfully pretty pictures of a world in ruin. Crysis 3 has all this and more. Granted, the 'more' is mainly guns (which are also the new guns), explosions and aliens being punched so hard and so far that the lead character might as well rename himself Punchy McFist Airlines. Heck, for…

The Newest Shiny-Shines Of CryENGINE 3

Yesterday brought official word that a profitable videogame would see a follow-up. Surprise! But while we got to ogle a few Crysis 3 screenshots, we didn't get to see it in motion. We still don't, because life is harsh and cruel and that's a lesson that we all need to learn at some point. Now go to bed without having any dinner. Once you wake…

Crysis 3 Confirmed, Is Crystal Maze-y

Here is a poorly-kept secret: I'm not a very tall man. Here is another one: Crysis 3 is happening. Even before evidence turned up last week, a fourth nanosuited adventure seemed something of a given, but it's taken the EA-Crytek announcengine this long to formally confirm the next game. I've just played Press Release Bingo and I've got a "stunning", a "state of the art",…

The Midlife Of Crysis – Crytek’s Third En Route?

While struggling to think up a headline pun to accompany the unsurprising news that there's almost certainly going to be a third (well, fourth technically speaking) Crysis game, the 'crap rhymes' part of my imagination dredged up No Way Sis, who were at one time deemed the UK's premier Oasis tribute act and enjoyed far too much success of their own. Even a hit single.…
