Build games faster, with higher quality
CryENGINE®3 also introduces CryENGINE®3 Live Create™ (Simultaneous WYSIWYP on all platforms). This allows developers to work with a single editor, but see and play the results in real-time on PC, PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360™, hooked up to a single dev PC. The engine takes care of the conversion and optimization of assets in real-time, enabling instant, cross-platform changes to any part of game creation and, as a result, materially increasing the speed and quality, while significantly reducing the risk of multi-platform development.
CryENGINE® 3 Realistic Characters
Characters and faces are some of the most important features of almost all modern AAA titles. CryENGINE®3 brings the most technically advanced, integrated and scalable animation and graphics technology together to deliver astonishingly real characters to cross-platform games at no extra
licensing cost. As Crysis® already demonstrated, Crytek are in the vanguard of the quest to achieve realistic characters in real-time graphics and we will of course continue this tradition with Crysis®2 and beyond.
Advanced Modular AI System
Realistically rendered and animated characters require state of the art AI systems to intelligently respond to the game environment and maintain the illusion of realism. CryENGINE®3 features powerful, scalable and flexible AI technology to handle character behaviors with modular sensory systems such as sight and hearing and fully support the complex requirements of the character locomotion system.
CryENGINE® 3: Next Generation Real-Time Graphics
CryENGINE®3 is the fastest high-end renderer in the world, with new
features specifically designed for PC, Xbox 360™ and Playstation®3.
Benchmark-setting graphical performance, near-photorealism in indoor and wide-open outdoor environments and extra-ordinary real-time special effects are some of the hallmarks of CryENGINE® technology. The CryENGINE®3 renderer provides seamless support for both indoor and outdoor environ-
ments on current platforms. Our multi-core and future-proof graphics technology ensure that CryENGINE® 3 is next-gen ready. With CryENGINE®3, scalability across multiple platforms is a further evolution to enable great looking games – regardless of the target platform.
