218w ago - Crytek, the developer of Far Cry and Crysis, announced earlier this month that its in-development multiplatform game engine CryENGINE 3 would be shown off for the first time at Game Developers Conference 2009. Now it's GDC week and we've got an exclusive sneak peek at Crytek's CryENGINE 3 trailer.
According to Crytek, the trailer features both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 footage.
The video is meant as a tech demo only, so the fact that it features nanosuit-clad soldiers from Crysis running around doesn't necessarily mean anything concrete.
It could just be that Crytek recycled some of its existing assets. No titles have been officially announced that will be built on CryENGINE 3 as of yet.
278w ago - Frankfurt-based developer Crytek (Far Cry, Crysis) has announced that it will be making the debut of a cross-platform version of its CryEngine 2 at this year's GDC, with a demonstration version running on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Crytek first debuted CryEngine 2 technology at the 2007 GDC, later releasing Crysis with Electronic Arts, the first title to utilize the engine. This year, Crytek is taking appointments to see the console versions of the engine.
Crytek will also be doing public demonstrations showing how its notoriously spec-heavy technology can be run on "a budget PC which can be put together for around 600 dollars complete, including keyboard and mouse," as well as demonstrations with licensees, including architectural and serious games companies.
The company notes that anyone wishing to make an appointment for a cross platform demonstration can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with details of their own company, or by visiting the developer's GDC show floor booth.
