Report article RSS Feed Outlook for 2012

Finally the pieces for our CE3 SDK based standalone demo are coming together, but there are even bigger things to come in 2012...

Posted by s87 on Jan 1st, 2012

Since we announced to go Indie last summer we kept quiet for a while. As you may know the free CryEngine 3 SDK was released back in August 2011 what opened a lot of opportunities for Indie developers and modding enthusiasts who want to get more advanced results than the Crysis 2 SDK could offer.

However with great power come great unforeseen problems, or something like that. We don't want to go into details here but we encountered a few things we can't easily solve on our own, or at least didn't expect we had to. But don't worry, we're still moving steadily towards a demo release...

Furthermore there have been some serious changes in the general project structure and other things we think you'll like to hear/see/expierence, so you see 2012 is going to be an interesting year for anyone following our endeavour to create a worthy Outcast sequel.

Waiting will pay off, we promise!

Can't wait for the demo, it is going to be really cool. I am rather excited to see what it is going to be like in CryEngine 3. Keep up the good work guys :) (Also if you feel up to it, maybe you wouldn't mind posting a few pics? :P Though this is just me being very hopeful xD)

Actually we could have posted pics of the revised maps a while ago (especially indoors stuff looks great thanks to GI :D), thing is that we decided to wait till we can show you the whole experience at least in some vid what means we need to have particle effects, sounds, enemy models and AI all at an equally good level. :)
