Cry Engine 3 Announced

Cry Engine 3 Image

Take a good look at the picture above. Look at how vibrant the trees look and how the sunlight strikes at the image so perfectly. Doesn’t it look like a wonderful photo you feel like hanging on your wall? Well, I’ve got a surprise to tell you: this image is NOT a photo. Believe it or not, this entire image was rendered in 3D. This is the power of the Cry Engine 3, a new game engine announced by Crytek at GDC 2009.

For those who don’t know, Crytek is the developer of the realistic FPS Crysis, as well as the original Far Cry half a decade ago. They have been working really hard to make a game engine so realistic, it makes an image like the one above nearly indistinguishable from a real photo. Going back to the Cry Engine 3, it will support the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, as well as future consoles through internal updates. As realistic as Crysis already was, I can’t wait for what new games will look like when they are created under this new game engine. You can look up more information here.
