Even though they’ve said a number of “major companies” are already working with it, starting today, Crytek’s CryEngine 3 is officially available to all interested licensees, the company has announced.
The most interesting bit about the engine, beyond the obviously drop dead gorgeous visuals, is its ability to allow for real-time simultaneous multiplatform development. If it works as well as well as advertised, gone could be the days of inferior PS3 ports. Check the ~50sec mark in the new video showcasing the teary engine above to see the feature in action. Some new shots in the gallery too.
