CryENGINE® 3 is a highly advanced development solution that surpasses all expectations for the creation of blockbuster games, movies, high-quality simulations, and interactive applications. The third iteration of Crytek's proprietary engine is the only all-in-one game development solution for the PC, Xbox 360™, and PlayStation®3 that is truly groundbreaking in itself.
Crytek sets the benchmark for engine support, delivering the best experience to developers to match the players’ experience of a CryENGINE 3 game!
Get in touch with real developers who are building high quality games based on CryENGINE 3 on a daily basis. Join our extensive training program and learn how to use the tools from the people who created them. We provide local support in all major territories worldwide and provide you with comprehensive documentation and tutorials.
You are the director! Learn more about our efficient tools that enable the fastest development of game environments and gameplay available on PC, PlayStation® 3, and Xbox 360™. Experience our “What you see is what you play” and our “Live Create” features, enabling real-time editing of multi-platform game environments simultaneously, both in 2D and true stereoscopic 3D. Cross-platform development has never been so easy!
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 extraordinary real-time special effects are some of the hallmarks of our 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.
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.
Characters and faces are some of the most important features of almost all modern high quality 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 our Crysis series already demonstrated, Crytek are in the vanguard of the quest to achieve realistic characters in real-time graphics and will continue this tradition in the future.
Build games faster and with higher quality.
CryENGINE 3 also introduces 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.
