Crytek: Features of the Cryengine 3 explained
Only recently Crytek introduced the Cryengine 3. Now the new construct is explained in detail.
The Cryengine 3 is the successor of the famous Cryengine 2 which provided the base for the impressive graphical possibilities of Crysis and Crysis Warhead as well as the innumerable modifications for the games. Now Crytek delivers some details of the features offered by the Cryengine 3. In contrast to the previous versions the new engine will be a multiplatform development and thus can be used for PC, Playstation3 and Xbox 360 games.
At the Game Developer Conference (GDC) in San Francisco Crytek released video material showing the Cryengine 3 in action. Below the video and on the following pages you can find Crytek's introduction and explanations of features that are provided by the new engine.
CryENGINE 3 Sandbox: The Ultimate Game Creation Toolset
CryENGINE 3 Sandbox gives developers full control over their multi-platform creations in real-time. It features many improved efficiency tools to enable the fastest development of game environments and game-play available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. All features of CryENGINE 3 games (without exception) can be produced and played immediately with Crytek's "What You See Is What You Play” (YSIWYP) system!
CryENGINE 3 Sandbox was introduced in 2001 as the world's first editor featuring YSIWYP technology. Since then Crytek have continued to improve and enhance the CryENGINE 3 Sandbox tools; and now the 3rd generation, fully integrated CryENGINE 3 Sandbox editor brings YSIWYP functionality to a whole new level. WYSIWYP is now possible on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; enhanced production tools and development efficiencies will give your team more time to create AAA multi-platform game content.
• Simultaneous WYSIWYP on all Platforms
CryENGINE 3 Sandbox now enables real-time editing of multi-platform game environments; simultaneously making changes across platforms from CryENGINE 3 Sandbox running on PC, without loading or baking delays. The ability to edit anything within the integrated CryENGINE 3 Sandbox and simultaneously play on multiple platforms vastly reduces the time to build compelling content for cross-platform products.
• Hot-Update for all Platforms
Changes can be made to original art asset sources (using standard art tools) for CryENGINE 3 Sandbox on PC, then CryENGINE 3 immediately and automatically converts, compresses and optimizes the content, then updates the output to all supported platforms. Developers can instantly see the effect of lighting, material and modeling changes within moments on any supported platform. Cross-platform development has never been so easy!
