CryEngine 3: GDC licensee video shows future games

Tuesday, 26th March 2013 09:29 GMT By Dave Cook

Crytek has released a video showing off the games its CryEngine 3 licensees are currently working on. It’s an impressive look at games on the horizon going into next-gen and shows off a variety of technical tricks.

The clip is watermarked so I can’t embed it here, but luckily AGB can hook you up here. Watch it, it’s shiny.

Some of the games on show are Big Red Butto, which shows a vast natural world with plant-life and mysterious-looking tombs. Battlefield of Order shows soldiers hang-gliding across worn torn cities while snipers volley off rounds from rooftops.

Datex shows a heavily-armed sports car tearing around streets while explosions fail to run it off the road. Onodo shows what appears to be bustling New York streets being peppered by giant splodges of pain and weird mechanical ducks before a Star Wars TIE Fighter screams overhead. very weird.

What do you think of the footage? Let us know below.

Thanks GameTrailers.

    “Impressive”? Really?
    Maybe 5% of that clip seemed interesting to me from a technical point of view.
    Combine that with gameplay that seems run of the mill all over the place and you got the same old looking just slightly better than before. And sometimes not even slightly.

    This is nice, but nothing really impressive. On paper CryEngine is really one of the most powerful but I’ve never been really “wowed” by it.

    For an engine that is ready for “next-gen” all I’ve seen look ordinary, “current-gen”.

    So far I’ve been much more impressed by UE 4 and Luminous. Of course what they showed were tech demos and not real games.

    CryEngine really needs something to wow audience or it will be forgotten.
