The CryENGINE® 3.4.4 “Winter Edition” update features a modified version of the forest level that is included with the free SDK, helping users to learn more about adding a touch of sub-zero style to any environment. Major highlights of the update include the refactoring and development of a new entity for simulating weather called the snow entity. Similar to the rain entity this feature applies a frozen material layer to all objects within a set radius, and has been improved since early iterations to enhance performance.


Users who download the update can also get their hands on new assets to try out for themselves. Among these winter-themed assets they’ll find snowmen, fairy lights, new textures and an ornamental gnome going by the appropriately Crytek-themed title of gnomad."

Visit the download page to download Crytek’s free CryENGINE® 3 SDK and learn a thing or two about adding some flavor to the levels you create. This is the official Crydev newspost fresh from the oven. Also if you haven’t got the guts to start doing something ont he new engine, or change from source (or any other older engine), here are some hd pictures collected by one of the Crydev admins (if i have the time, im gonna upload them to the Cryengine moddb profile). Let the modding begin!

Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

It looks rather amazing, but the devkit is very hard to learn to use. I think they really need to work with userfriendly interfaces like the UDK has; afterall these kits are aimed at smaller teams or just hobby-modders, and those kind of people dont want to spend a lot of time and oney just to learn how to use the tool.

The brilliance of Crytek is releasing all these mouth-watering assets and then forbidding you from using them in your commercial game. You cannot use anything from CrySDK in a commercial product. So the CrySDK is basically here for you to learn Cryengine and then get a job with it. Not really for making indie games...

This makes me want a computer that can actually play Crysis 2, let alone on high settings.
