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.

Wwise from Audiokinetic is the world-class audio engine and integration tool that we’ve chosen to include with CryEngine. Used in AAA games across console, desktop and mobile platforms, Wwise provides a complete audio integration pipeline that we’ve deeply integrated into CryEngine. You can learn more about Wwise here.

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.

Along with all the new game announcements that came out of E3 2016 last week, some new footage for existing VR games was released. One such trailer was for Crytek’s upcoming PlayStation VR-exclusive game, Robinson: The Journey. Check it out, above.

We don’t know much about how Robinson: The Journey will actually play, but there’s much that can be said about its world and setup. Seemingly playing off Crytek’s previously-released tech demos for the Oculus Rift, the Back To Dinosaur Island series, Robinson: The Journey will plunge players into a similarly dinosaur-inhabited world.

Robinson: The Journey


Unlike those tech demos, however, it seems like this time around the player isn’t just along for the ride, as Crytek’s executive producer, Elijah Freeman, describes on the PlayStation blog:

“You could say it’s about recreating that level of authenticity on a much, much grander scale. That means not just making something visually stunning, but also telling a story that is emotionally engaging and which resonates with players beyond the game world.”

YouTuber MKIceAndFire captured some actual gameplay footage from the opening, which features the player exploring the prehistoric world after crash-landing on it:

The player also has a gravity gun-like tool which allows them to pick up and interact with physics objects in the world. This tool will also be used to solve puzzles that the player will encounter – such as being able to feed a brontosaurus. There is currently no release date for Robinson: The Journey, so look for it after the PlayStation VR hardware launches on October 13.

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' :(
