It's Real Time: CryEngine 3's Real-Time Tools

Here's something excellent that we missed last week. Along with Epic showing off the new Unreal improvements, Crytek had a remarkable tech demo for the latest features in CryEngine 3. It's mystifying. I'm currently contacting alien lifeforms to arrange the delivery of my next PC from the future to make sure I'll be taking full advantage of it. Those trees!

I love the sure knowledge that in a few years time I'll be looking at these graphics and wondering at how I can have thought they were any good. I remember the first time I saw Far Cry and thought, "But it's like a photograph!" The brain is enormously generous. But for now, wow, those trees!

Gametrailers have an interview with Crytek's Sean Tracy which explains lots of the mysterious words in the video.
