Crytek has released two GDC 2014 trailers for its proprietary game engine, the CRYENGINE. CRYENGINE is described as an advanced game development solution with scalable computation and graphic technologies, effectively making it the fastest high-end renderer in the world.

It looks like everyone's been working on their game engines this year, Unreal, Unity, CryEngine and it's paid off magnificently with new features and optimizations coming to the engines, CryEngine however, looks absolutely phenomenal!

Update: Wow every ones opening their doors to indie developers, Crytek has announced an "Engine-as-a-Service" (EaaS) program which provides developers with CryEngine for a subscription of 9.90 USD per user! completely breezing fast UE4's subscription by being more affordable!

As a first tier of its new program, Crytek has revealed that from May this year, indie developers will be able to use all of CRYENGINE's cutting-edge features for a monthly subscription fee of 9.90 USD/EUR per user - royalty free. Those features include the recently announced addition of CRYENGINE features such as Physically Based Shading, Geometry Cache and Image Based Lighting - an upgrade already shown in action by Crytek at this year's GDC conference in San Francisco.

There's nothing new... They're just showing reels from projects we've already seen. Hell, most of the scenes from the "Free SDK" reel aren't even from games.

is it required to put a small amount of plastic coating over everything? Everything is so shiny.

What caught my eye is star citizen, that game is going to break new grounds imo.

CryEngine for you, lol just like how a good amount of Unreal Engine stuff looks soo, "Unreal"

Dayum, Star Cit in a league of it's own in that reel haha... The sheer grunt you'll need to play that game scares me

I don’t want to sound ungrateful here, but the only thing that looks really sweet is kingdom come.. and i believe that is running on the original crysis engine with mods ?

It's funny how there's so much news about game engines all of a sudden. In the past 3 days, all 4 game engine top-dogs have revealed some new info. Unity with their 5th iteration, Unreal Engine 4 with their monthly plan, Ubisoft with their new Snowdrop shindig, and now CryEngine with this? Must be some correlation.

Maybe this is a new point in time the real next gen? or perhaps a profit chart for gaming had an arrow pointing vertically.. who knows

We're definitely seeing a step up in software, but those "nextgen" machines will hold back the progression, as with every console generation, the PS4's decent, but the CPU grunt in these machines is abysmal to what we have in our PCs, however they are managing some fantastic stuff on them we're too far ahead in the technology world and these consoles are running mid range 2012 GPU tech, How times have changed since the X360 that was perceived to be a powerful machine, now you've got developers saying the CPUs are slow and Nvidia calling the PS4 a low end PC lol.

One thing I'm loving is all this ram and the multi threaded engines which are emerging, this will definitely push the software forward for a good couple of years until we're all running 16 cores lol.
