First Crysis 2 videos possibly at GDC plus new Cryengine 3 videos
Apparently the first video material of Crysis 2 has been on display at the Games developer Conference in Cologne. Also new: Videos of the Cryengine 3.
At the Siggraph 2009 Crytek had introduced the lighting system of the Cryengine 3. It is called "Light Propagation Volumes” and is used for Global Illumination and Massive Lighting. According to Crytek both techniques are supposed to improve the lighting quality. The Cryengine 3 will be used or Crysis 2 for example.
Now a video showing Cevat Yerli at a speech about the technology of the Cryenigne 3 was published at the Intel Youtube Channel. After 75 seconds there are video sequences of a game shown. Unfortunately it has not been revealed what kind of scenes those are: It could have been a technology demonstration but it is also possible that those scenes were the first footage of Crysis 2. The rumor that EA wants to release Crysis 2 videos at the Gamescom has once again been brushed up by this.
Furthermore there is new information about the Cryengine 3: IGN has two new Cryengine 3 trailers that show, among other things, the Live Creation Technology. With this technique the developers can work on the content of all three platforms simultaneously and test the adjustments immediately on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
