CRYENGINE adds Linux Support as Crytek Prepare to Offer New Possibilities at GDC



During presentations and hands-on demos at Crytek's GDC booth, attendees can see for the first time ever full native Linux support in the new CRYENGINE. The CRYENGINE all-in-one game engine is also updated with the innovative features used to recreate the stunning Roman Empire seen in Ryse - including the brand new Physically Based Shading render pipeline, which uses real-world physics simulation to create amazingly realistic lighting and materials in CRYENGINE games.

It's good that developers are trying to separate themselves from DirectX, why give Microsoft a monopoly on game development framework when they shouldn't have it?

Must have been a decent task to take over the CryENGINE in full. If more major engines at least come over with Linux support, I can imagine a pretty interesting future ahead for SteamOS

It'd be interesting to say the least to see DirectX dislodged. So much going on right now, future potentials are pretty insane.

Might happen, who knows. Would be cool at least!

Nice to see Crytek still pushing new grounds. Wonder how performance will be, Windows vs Linux.

This is fantastic news. I wonder if they just used a directX to OpenGL wrapper or if they changed the render engine to OpenGL and DirectX. If it's the latter, I have hopes that CRYENGINE is being adjusted to have multiple rendering API support, so possible Mantle.

I don't think NVAPI is what you think it is.
