Maximum Graphicsability: CryEngine Aids Industrial Design

Here is a very interesting thing that just so happens to have yielded intensely pretty results. The short version? We get to go "Ooooooooooooo high dynamic range spectral gazelle mapping slobber slobber moo" but also "Oh yes, hmmm, oh indeed, yes." It's all thanks to Enodo, a French company that's realized games could have tremendous practical potential in the realm of real-world industrial design. Its…

Big Is Beautiful: Monster Hunter Online Trailer

I think that's a giant squirrel in the screenshot. I could find out if it is, but to be told it's not would only make me sad. And the cropping is odd because I refused to chop the tip off that magnificent sword the player is wielding. The two together can only mean one thing. Monster Hunter Online! It's the newly announced MMO based the…

Abduction Does Gorgeous Stealth In CryEngine 3

Can I declare that we're in the middle of a Stealth Renaissance yet? Because I really want to, but I'm afraid that I'll frighten our good fortune and it'll skulk back into the all-consuming shadows from whenst it came. But come on: between Mark of the Ninja, Dishonored, and Hitman, we're set for the remainder of this year. Now if only we had some under-the-radar…

Pump Up The Volumetrics: CryEngine 3 Tech Demo

I approach engine tech demos with caution, as if they were primed to explode, or at least deceive me with their promises and lies. They're not necessarily representative of anything that will actually be seen in a game, unless you're one of those people who reckons iD games are tech demos, in which case they're the most reliably accurate tech demos of all. The new…

CryEngine 3 / Beam Physics: Soft Body, Hard Metal

In response to our various sightings of Crysis 3, the RPS stronghold is currently flying these flags: blue with green braiding, taupe with a cyan crucifix and burple with vibrant lavender thistle emblems. And we all know what that says about our opinions on Crytek's next shooter. Even as we debate the openy worlidiness or lack thereof of Prophet's latest alien-hectoring rampage, it's worth keeping…

Cry Me A Robot: Mechwarrior Uses CryEngine

Still no in-game images yet, but we've just learned that Mechwarrior Online will use CryEngine 3. "It is definitely the best choice for us," said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. "Both the character animation pipeline with the procedurally and physics based animations and the destruction system fit our goals perfectly and allow us to develop a truly unique AAA experience based on the award-winning…

Crysis 2’s Shocking Tech Compromise: Proof

Having played Crysis 2, the latest from the former technical innovators at Crytek, I have to express that I'm not only horrified, but also shocked, at the paucity of graphical accomplishments in what should have been a groundbreaking game. It's quite clear that massive compromises have been made in order to keep the console market happy, meaning the PC version of the game is crippled…

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!

GDC CryEngine 3 Demo

If the internet is a space marine, then GameTrailers is surely his large, red bionic eye, which sees all, and gives a +1 bonus to hit. This week the bionic eye has seen things at GDC, including a bunch of CryEngine 3 footage, some of which could be indicative of what to expect from Crysis 2. It's filmed off a screen, but worth taking a…

Cry Some More: CryENGINE 3, STALKER 2?

Crytek last night announced the latest incarnation of their engine, CryENGINE 3 is now available to be licensed. Now that may not affect you or me (unless you're a games developer of course), but there's some interesting implications of this latest tech. Of course, it first of all means games are going to be prettier - these are the people who keep bowling us over…

Crytek Show Off Fly Tech

CryEngine 3 has been unveiled at GDC, and shown off with a new video. Nothing on the new “what you see is what you play” editor (WYSIWYP, clever eh?) or any hard tech facts so far, and sadly the crappy compression of the trailer means the impact is lessened somewhat. But it still looks fractionally more impressive than Crysis, and that's the main thing. Right?…
