CryEngine 3 Preview

In the midst of attempting to import objects into the CryEngine 2 – see our post on A Return to Crysis? SketchUp and 3D Max Progress‘ we missed the sneak preview of the CryEngine 3 at the Games Developers Conference.

As the specs state: CryENGINE® 3 is the first Xbox 360™, PlayStation® 3, MMO, DX9 and DX10 all-in-one game development solution that is next-gen ready – with scalable computation and graphics technologies. With CryENGINE® 3 you can start the development of your next generation games today. CryENGINE® 3 is the only solution that provides multi-award winning graphics, physics and AI out of the box.

The complete game engine suite includes the famous CryENGINE® 3 Sandbox™ editor, a production-proven, 3rd generation tool suite designed and built by AAA developers. CryENGINE® 3 delivers everything you need to create your AAA games.

See the Crytek page for full info and updates, as a tool for architectural and geographical visualisation the CryEngine 2 is unsurpassed so we are looking forward to version 3…

    This looks great – I am interested in the ABM possibilities of this. I notice from the website blurb that they offer external scripting for the AI, have you guys played around with this at all (in CryEngine 2)? It would be interesting to see what (if anything) could be done c. your second life stuff – moving from visualisation to real simulation.
