Cry Engine 2 and Crysis

Far Cry was, and still is, one of the best looking games to date. The huge outdoor environments and detailed murky indoor ones, set the mood fantasticly well, and made the experience great fun!

An now, Crytek has come up with their next project, the Cry Engine 2, and the game to show it off – Crysis.

The details are sketchy, and the article posted below is in German, which isn’t much good to me, but the screenshots speak for themselves. This is using the new dx10 and all the latest technology avaliable. I am impressed, and I shall keep you updated if anything more comes out about this.

EDIT: Check out the awesome film clip of the effects and technologies they use…it looks pretty darn good.

Here are a few teasers of the niceest screenshots (these are all created by the engine!)

  1. The pictures and video are stunning. Here is where the line is beginning to be blurred between games and tv/movies in terms of video quality. Some of the pictures (especially the teaser pic) are virtually indistinguishable [no pun intended] from reality.

    Hopefully this engine and DX10 in general will raise the bar for other graphics. As long as gameplay doesn’t suffer I’ll be happy.

    And as long as the sound doesn’t suffer I’m sure Kenny will be happy 😛
