About CRYENGINE
CRYENGINE is the first all-in-one development solution with truly scalable computation and benchmark graphics technologies. With CRYENGINE, developers are fully equipped to create standout game experiences, using the engine behind games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Crysis series.

The Famous CRYENGINE Sandbox editor is a production proven, third-generation real-time tool suite designed and built by AAA Developers. All development features of a CRYENGINE game can be produced, edited and played immediately with the “what you see is what you play” (WYSIWYP) system. The engine deals with the instant conversion and optimization of assets in real-time, enabling cross-platform changes to all elements of the game creation process. This increases the speed and quality of development, while significantly reducing the risk of creating multi-platform games.

How do I upgrade my Wwise license?
There are two ways to upgrade your license of Wwise. If your project uses under 200 sound files, you can use the Wwise Free Limited Commercial License. You can start the process by creating an account at the Audiokinetic website, and then you can request your Limited Commercial License key by creating a project here. Be sure to fill out the form completely, as it will need to be approved.

The other method is for projects that go beyond the 200 sound file limit of the Limited Commercial License. For these, please contact Audiokinetic directly to request a full commercial trial or purchase a full commercial license. Licensing price details can be found here.

The past few weeks since our last update have been a hive of activity for the team, and for the first time ever we’re very excited to bring you some gifs showing off this work!

Over the past few months we have stepped up the intensity of testing as we pull together years of work into the stable base which we have internally dubbed 'Overlord-lite'. 'Lite' is now almost complete with just the importing of the new German character outstanding.

Testing is as always an enormous amount of fun, but it’s bringing to light some interesting design issues for us to overcome. Most recently we have been looking at making player identification a little easier, as in the low lighting environments accidental team killing has been happening too regularly. We are exploring ways of making team identification quicker and easier whilst still keeping UI interference to a minimum.

“MG34 firing into the darkness and being suppressed by return fire”


With a stable base now nearing completion we have moved on to less immediately obvious (but just as important) improvements in various areas of the game. For example, by giving mappers more advanced controls over the parameters of capture points they can better tailor the experience to specific circumstances. Another example of this is implementing better tracking of crashes. This will allow our programmers to more quickly understand what causes instability at this stage, and will be useful to us both during pre-release testing and post-release.

“Ambushed at short range”


In its current state the game is stable and playable, but this refinement stage is important before we move onto implementations of the pre-game experience such as the main menu, server browser, and account systems which we will be tackling during the final balancing phase as we gear up towards release and distribution.

“OPEN FIRE!”


Developing the game has never been without its challenges and animations have long been a thorn in our side. The CRYENGINE animation system is incredibly powerful, and enables us to manipulate animations dynamically inside the game - but with this power comes complexity. We are looking for new animators to join the team and help us speed up the process, so if you have experience in character animation and would like to be part of the project please get in touch. Experience of the engine is not required. Find out more at www.tractionwars.com/joinus.php

“Suppressing fire!”


Last weekend also saw team members returning to EGX Rezzed to join the crowds and check out the many indie projects and developers with booths at the event. We had a fantastic time speaking to fellow developers and WWII enthusiasts not to mention sitting down and trying many of the games on display.

That’s all for this state of the game update. We will be continuing our development push over the coming weeks. In the meantime, keep an eye on the forum, official discord channels, and social media.

Well this EaaS is a colossal disappointment. Way to screw over your hobbyist fans while simultaneously doing very little for your indie fans all under the guise of being "indie friendly."

Took the words right out of my mouth.
Love the engine still, but their business model is somewhat questionable, but then again I too am only a small developer 'hopefull' :(
