New CryEngine movie rocks next-gen’s joint, blows current gen’s mind

Thursday, 15th October 2009 09:21 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Bloody hell. EG just posted a new demo video of CryEngine 3 running on 360 and PS3, as well as showing some completely frigging bonkers real-time visuals and physics – must-watch.

It’s got “next gen ready” stamped all over it. It’s not hard to see why, frankly.

“With CryEngine 3 we are releasing the best development solution available today and tomorrow,” said CryTek boss Cevat Yerli.

“With its scalable graphics and computation it is Next Gen ready and with new features like CryEngine 3 Live Create the best choice for game developers and companies developing serious games applications alike. It is the only game engine solution that enables real-time development.”

Hit it.

    I need a towel, I just creamed my shorts.

    Hmm CryEngine 3 the next Unreal Engine? Definately

    Epic pushes out the Unreal engine when its still buggy as hell with undelivered promises and than patches it later.

    Does look freaking gorgeous

    By “Next Gen” you are meaning XBox3 and PS4?

    …everyone knows how much of a cynic I am, but… holy crap. That’s some impressive stuff.

    It’ll be nice to see what companies will do with that procedural physics, but realistically we won’t see this engine appear in games for at least another two years *at minimum*.

    2013/2014 should usher in a new era of mind-meltingly awesome GFX. (By which time, playing non-MMO games on PCs will probably only be remembered as myth or something.)

    Oooh pretty. How the install’s not as big as the unreal engine one is on the ps3…

    For that exact reason Gekidami, ’cause it’s on consoles too; I’d hate to burst his bubble :D

    Although I *seriously* doubt he’s willing to hear/accept anything other than what pleases/suits him…

    I’m going to be a little cynical on it, but even I have to admit that is just… wow.

    The scenes labeled “next gen ready” aren’t actually running on PS3 or Xbox 360. That’s their vision of the future, a very nice vision but not one they’re alone in. They just happen to be the first to speculate.

    Looks like it scales pretty well for both PC/next-gen and current-gen consoles. Nicely done. But I still doubt we will see many 360/PS3 games with that engine. There should be projects underway right now if they want to finish them before new consoles take the spotlight.

    looks decent. textures r low res though. can’t wait to see this on a high end pc. should be looking 2x as good.

    I’m betting we’ll see about 2 games running in this: Crysis 2 and Crytek UK’s game. I dont think they’re going to sell the engine to other devs.

    #17 5 years ago

    Not that far in the future. Crysis 2 will be on this engine. Not sure it will be the full fledged version like this video but it will definately be the first version which still will be impressive.

    Gekidami: Oh, they have been selling it since the first version (Far Cry). Not many developers have bought it, though. NCsoft’s recently released Aion uses modified CryEngine 1 and they have also licenced the engine for non-gaming purposes.

    They already have CE 2 up for license, I don’t see why they woulden’t do the same with CE 3.

    Just that everybody is so busy making Unreal Engine games they haven’t noticed other tech out there.

    :S I meant Crysis 2 not 3.

    Maybe Crytek has the engine for higher price then EPic, that and Epic has been around longer than Crytek. COmpanies will always stay with whats Confortable and cheap.

    Meh, looks like wii graphics ;-)

    Pretty stunning stuff. I look forward to some real world implementation…

    yea too bad it still needs to watered down to run on consoles lol.

    by next gen pc gamers will have pc more powerful than next gen.

    Also pc gaming will have a supercomputer power to run games like onlive and trera flops. SO yea enjoy your last generation of consoles.

    PC games are made in hell by Satan! The PC is a tool of the Iluminati!

    “Meh, UC2 looks just as good if not better.”

    I might actually be with you on this one, except for the procedural destruction.

    Uncharted 2 is FRICKING gorgeous.
