CryEngine 3’s soft-body physics demo demolishes a truck, repeatedly

A new video showing off soft-body physics in CryEngine 3 has surfaced and, while there are still a few issues to be worked out — “don’t mind the shading and collision issues, we’re working on it,” it’s said — it’s looking mighty entertaining as is.

A pickup truck is used here, but the tech — called the Beam physics system — can be used with anything, including “cars, trucks, planes, boats, trains, cranes, tanks, helicopters, and even destructible map objects and crash test dummies.”

“It’s all real physics. Anything is possible.”
