Crytek have recently released their new games engine called Cryengine V, and they have shown off some of the new features in a YouTube video.
The engine was launched last week by the company, after it was originally revealed during the Game Developers Conference in San Diego. They are letting users pay what they want, also giving them the option to pay nothing. If you do decide to pay, up to 70% can go to an indie development fund. Today they have released a video that details some of the new features.
The marketplace is one of the biggest changes to Cryengine. Like the Unity and Unreal Engine 4 equivalents, it will let developers buy a variety of assets. The engine’s rendering system will also now support DX12, while volumetric clouds and their particle system has been improved performance wise.
With virtual reality being a big deal at the moment, Cryengine V will support a variety of headsets including the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the PlayStation VR. Some people will also be happy to know that the engine now supports C#.
