Update from the Team #15: EULA update and next big release

Hey all,

with CRYENGINE 3.7 out and in user's hands since last week, we wanted to give you a heads-up on a change to our EULA (End-User License Agreement) and give you a small glimpse at our next big update.

First however, we want to thank all of you for your feedback to 3.7- both the many kind words, as well as the reports of issues that you have encountered. Rest assured that we are reading through all of it on our forums!

Additions to the CRYENGINE Engine-as-a-Service EULA
First up is a small, but important update to our EULA. Under section 1 "Definitions", we will change 1.1 to read as follows in the future:

1.1. "CryEngine": the CryEngine for PC/Windows or Linux (as applicable) in object code form, including the CryEngine Tools, the CryEngine Assets and any updates thereto as made available by Crytek at its sole discretion under the "CryEngine as a Service" program.

Let's talk about the pengui... elephant in the room
If you read the above paragraph, it might not come as a major surprise to you, but we are proud to announce that we will add an Open GL implementation and support for running your EaaS games on Linux with one of our next updates. For now, Linux support will be limited to the game launcher, and the Sandbox editor will still require Microsoft Windows. And of course, Linux support will be subject to the same developer-friendly terms as on Windows: Your monthly subscription fee will allow you to sell your games for Linux in addition to Windows, with no additional fees or royalties required.

While we can't pin an exact date on this update, we wanted to give you an early heads-up so you can start planning your Linux ports today!

Until next time,

The CRYENGINE Team

“CRYENGINE is, for my money, the best looking and most full-featured engine currently available.”
Chris Roberts, Founder and CEO, Cloud Imperium Games

“It’s safe to say we literally could not have done this game with any other engine without a drastic reduction in the scope of our project; the size of our maps, the level of detail. We set out to make a world that was breathtaking to look at, and that’s what you see in-game. It’s a relationship we hope to grow in the future with more games!”
Turtle Rock Studios

“We looked at every major technology out there and CRYENGINE suits our needs perfectly.”
Martin Klima, Executive Producer, Warhorse Studios

Crytek's groundbreaking development technology is now more accessible than ever! For just 9.90 USD/EUR per month, developers everywhere can subscribe and gain total access to the industry-leading feature set of CRYENGINE- without ever having to pay licensing fees or royalties!

About CRYENGINE
CRYENGINE (previously known as CryEngine 3) 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.

For more information on CRYENGINE, visit the CRYENGINE website. You can also follow us on Twitter @cryengine, or find us on Facebook

CRYENGINE is the most technically advanced engine in game development, yet it is remarkably easy to manipulate. The objects and terrain have predictable properties, the advanced lighting effects are self contained and easy to toggle, and it supports both DX11 and Mantle.

As a disclaimer I have not used Unreal 4, but it would have to be very good indeed to warrant switching.

Strange that it counts the Number of hours spent in the GameSDK rather than the Editor, but whatever. I have around 300+ hours in the editor.

The engine is really REALLY powerful, that being said its not for the faint of heart to develop on. If you have a solid programmer or two though you can make the most AMAZING looking game, and the animation system allows for extremely powerful and smooth gameplay animations.

Honestly, after using Cryengine for a while I would never be able to go back to Unreal 4, Cryengine is just so supperior to build things quickly, and make it look amazing with very little extra work. The gameplay building aspect of it could be easier, but thankfully they are working hard on the documentation and have make big strides recently. When 3.7 comes out there will be almost no reason at all to use UE4 or Unity anymore. This engine performs amazing as well, I have a full very filled scene at 3 million to 4 million polygons with 3500 drawcalls, and I am getting 89-110 FPS solid on a single 980. I have had upwards of 9 Million running smooth before.

There is just no comparison for power. Usability? Thats another story.

This is a very powerful game engine with a great sandbox editor that comes loaded with good looking sample assets. Terrain editor is great and makes creating a custom topology for your level a breeze. However... object creation/editing is pretty much non-existent and object editing is cumbersome. The documentation is borderline useless if you are looking to do anything more advanced than just placing sample assets, running around shooting sample asset weapons at sample asset targets from sample asset vehicles... Starting to see the theme? What you get for a ridiculously low monthly subscription fee is the need to buy several thousand dollars worth of Autodesk software to be able to create and export any of your own original asset content - and even then its through a hoaky plugin. There is no support for any open tools like Blender, MakeHuman, Gimp, or any non-Autodesk commercial tools. And speaking of no support, the community is still incredibly small. Search through youtube, you'll find a guy that has some videos... If you want to write your own plugin to bridge the gap, good luck ... there is no documentation on the seven or so custom crytek file types, and the attempts to create export plugins (i.e. cryblend) are equally poorly documented and implemented. Don't get me wrong, I really really want to be a fan of this game engine. With the power and simplicity in so many of the important areas, it just comes up too short in the critical areas to be able to build something you've created. I even gave it one last shot by searching through the internet to find their development roadmap, thinking now that they are hurting for cash they might be looking at expanding their scope to include the community they are trying to serve... alas, the asset roadmap has a long romance with Autodesk ahead. For me, it's back to UDK which has an incredibly strong community, open asset support throughout the industry (open and commercial) and all that for just a little bit more a month with a small royalty fee. If you can't create your own content, what are you doing building games when you can just be playing them...

Spent way to many hours in this sandbox bit of a hobby ,Not as difficult as people make out to do the basic stuff .As long as you take the time to watch youtube lessons etc and read. And community will help you out if your stuck and Devs offer good support on the forum.You can make some great enviroments in this its rewarding if you put the time and effort in to learn the basics

I made this for Star Citizen took a few months of learning

I've had a realy good time learning how to make games with Cryengine. This is my first try at 3d games and find the learning curve to be way more steep, then I first thought. The forums and Cryengine Doc's.have made finding my way around a breeze. Lots of good videos on Youtube as well. The only real problem I have is lack of premade assets/plugins. It just take's alot of time making something and porting it to the engine. It's new to me, so i'm sure I will get better at it with time. I'm planing on having a game out by Chrismas this year, so i will keep this review open ended. Thx

This is easily my favorite engine. It is an incredibly versatile and powerful tool and while it may take some time to learn (definitly not as much time as some people say) it is definitly a tool worth beholding.

Also, the reason a lot of people show a low playtime on this engine is because steam only shows the playtime of the game-loader, not the editor itself.

Really powerful tool in a capable hand. Not recommended for amateurs who are new to game engines in general. The documentation is there, but can be overwhelming as it's really not intended for beginners. However, if you manage to get things working right, the results are spectacular. CryEngine does not play by your rules, it's more of a convention over configuration kind of deal. Bottom line, it's a extremely powerful engine if you get past the not so elegant documentation and lack of active community support.

GREAT!!

I did allot of reading about this package, at first it was on reviews like this one here on Steam.... There are allot of un-greatful mis-guided brats running around posting up things like "CRAP!!!1!" when you read into it this would reflect their understanding of what they are purchasing. Whilst it is a powerfull state of the art robust development tool it is not a $2.50 everythings done for you, you just choose where the walls go and pick a splash screen, RPG Maker OMG MADE 5 GAMES THIS WEEKEND didnt-actually-make-a-game-game-maker.....sorry there's nothing wrong with people using those programs, they are great gateways to finding passion for Games Development, however time and time again people have given this bad reviews based on the fact it's difficult to use.

Its difficult to use compared to a toaster and easy compared other development suites, think about what you would like to get out of this. It will be time consuming, you will spend allot of time on the CryDev site flicking through the countless bits of documents surrounding the ins and outs of how too and how NOT too.

Another bum wrap I noted is just that, people complained that there isn't any documentation on how to use this thing.... in-correct there is plenty to read and plenty to help you through. I have found everything I have needed so far (extreme beginer user)

It has a powefull easy-to-use sandbox that from what I can see can be used my people like me who are very basic and down the line becomes very powerful and precise. The process to export and playtest a level you are working on is about 7 clicks or something. ALSO THERE IS ALLOT OF INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTATION ON THIS PRODUCT ITS JUST NOT STAPLED TO YOUR THICK HEAD FOR YOU.

In summary,

DO BUY THIS IF -

You are aware that you are purchasing access to tools and an engine which is quite amazing with a great level of support ( if you know how to type into a ♥♥♥♥ing google-esk search bar) and understand you will not knock out a unique AAA game over the weekend. It's really quite great I've learnt allot reading allot of documents and peicing bits and peices together.


DON'T BUY THIS IF -

a) You are upset by what you have read because I've personally offended you.
b) You lack the ability to accept / find that this package has multiple arms including the documentation which is on a website
f) You expect to launch it, wave a wand and laugh with GabeN next weekend about how easy the games industry is to master
u) You intend to spend 0.1 hrs using then trash it with a review
k) You are your mothers brother
u) You have the expectation that you will download the ability to code games at the same time you download this utility
h) You don't have spare time / patience to hone a skill or persue a career and or hobbie.

All seriousness its $9, try it out I've found it quite enjoyable so far.

CRYENGINE has been a strong platform in impressive titles for years. It contains some amazing visual technologies, and the post-processing effect defaults out of the box are great. It comes with things like the incredibly powerful RENDERDOC utility for profiling your draw calls and timings, which is always useful in game development. In general it is good engine for major projects and for workflows that involve multiple people/teams. Unfortunately that's not what their new Engine-as-a-Service paradigm is targeting with a Steam release and $10 single-seat subscription licensing.

I'm going to have to rate this down on Steam, due to a serious disconnect between what they're marketing and the experience you are likely to have with it. It is on Steam specifically to appeal to independent developers with its new subscription based structure that costs less than many MMOs. The editing tool (which is what you're exposed to right at the start) has a lot of presets, behaviors, and objects for first-person shooters, but not for much of anything else. Furthermore, CRYENGINE (without serious tweaks) makes some problematic assumptions about the games you'll want to make with it; the concept of health, gravity, characters, the way it handles player controls, etc. From a quick look around the features in the tools and the demos, you will quickly realize that the package is targeted for gamers who what to try making their own shooter. Again, there are tons of GREAT features in CRYENGINE and it is, at its core, a pretty good engine for the cost.

In closing, CRYENGINE is great for those who are steeped in the workflow and methodologies involved with developing in it. But those people will already know this and won't need to read these reviews. To those interested in just trying out a "triple-A" engine: be warned. There is a significant learning curve (like all engines), but the package you are given with CRYENGINE is prohibitively unintuitive, especially to the uninitiated. I have to vote this down for the simple fact that those reading this review would be better served with any of the other popular engines. The community and resources you have available to you for learning CRYENGINE as a newbie simply pale in comparison to some of the direct competitors, and I'm afraid that's a vitally important aspect when you're targeting this kind of audience.

I can recommend this engine if you want to create a first or third person shooter that heavily relies on features as seen in the Crysis Game Series.

Disclaimer: I am a programmer, so my view on the Engine is very code based.

Creating other things soon comes down to massive trial and error due to lack of documentation and not having the source code of the engine available.
There are just too many little hacks for fps games inside the engine you can't get rid of it without massive workarounds which would just not be needed with some minor changes in the core engine code.

To give some examples:
  • Why do I need to load a player model into an Actor implementation if I want to use Actor physics entity? (And specify the capsule anyway?)
    Workaround: Load the default Player Model with all its Meshes and Textures and make it invisible, so you can use the Actor Physics Entity.
  • The feet alignment system always expects the gravity on -z, when walking on a wall or on the ceiling the feet gets flipped 90 or 180 degrees...

We've used the CRYENGINE to create a first person puzzle game at our University, a quick impression can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omAnp2eHSwE

There are of course some great features in this engine (the renderer of course), but the engine was built from ground up with the intention to create first or third person shooters (on an open island) and without the ability to change this intention this is hardly any good general engine.

The other side is the absolutely amazing WYSIWYG Sandbox Editor. If you just want to create levels for the integrated shooter, or get a grip on Level Design this might be just the tool for you.

I personally do not want to work with this engine again as long as its so focused on one genre without the ability to change that.

Cry Engine is the easiest All-In-One Engine i have used.
I highly recommend it.
It needs a lot of learning, but it is worth of your time.
Im really mad about all the negative reviews.
You have to realize that this kind of engine needs much time to learn even the basics.
There is the FreeSDK to try if you dont want to buy subscription.
Download
But it is only 9,90€ to create your ideas in to a game.
I could tell so much about the awesome features, but this video explains it all better than me.

This pales in comparison to the UE4 subscription. This seems to be the same as the free sdk, with some updates. Still don't get shader source? Are you serious?

I do not know why people here on steam are complaining about this game engine. CRYENGINE is an awesome engine with a learning curve that people will realize how powerful it can be. I highly recommend everyone to subscribe this engine, if you are really determined to create CRYENGINE games, before making any reaction how bad it is. There are plenty of tutorials available at crydev.net and video lessons like YouTube, etc. I understand the only drawback for using this game engine would be the lack of programming knowledge.

CRYENGINE supports C++, Lua, and Python programming languages. However with the improvement of CRYENGINE's flowgraph system, it actually makes gaming development more understandable and fun. I personally like how the documentation explains the new AI flowgraph behavior scripting system that allows AI characters to behave or interact. Because it generally uses the updated Modular Behavior Tree (MBT) system, it is considered a great learning experience to understand how AI behaviors work, along scripting with Lua and flowgraph.

The terrain generator tool is also awesome. Developing real-time terrain geometry has never been so much fun, unlike UDK's terrain generating system. The terrain generator is simple to use, painting terrain grounds, flora, and trees without any hesitation . UDK terrain generator system does not have those simple features as CRYENGINE does.

I had purchased all CRYENGINE's PacktPub books in eBook format and they are all great reference books for game developers who are interested in knowing more about the CRYENGINE.

I personally believe that CRYENGINE is the best engine for creating real-time open environments. UDK, on the other hand, is only good for creating closed-end environments. However, CRYENGINE can also develop closed-end environments, but renders beautifully with high level of detail.

Before subscribing to CRYENGINE, you must have a mid-to-high end GPU graphics card, like NVIDIA GeForce GTX or AMD Radeons to experience CRYENGINE'S real-time performance. It should work fine on PCs with intel i5/i7 or AMD FX processors with 8GB ram or above.

BIG TIP: SAVE OFTEN!

I was really excited when I saw this on steam. Unfortunately they still have a ways to go. It's kind of buggy i.e. missing sprites and sounds that show up in weird ways when you shoot the wrong thing. There is also very little starter content/examples to look at. Hopefully they will update soon but until then I can't recommend it.

Best engine for indie developers, presently cheapest plan, small lack of documentation that is overshadowed by a sprawling community at the forums and ever growing online documentation with examples etc... I highly recommend this engine to any new developer with limited funds. Engine is shipped with already done FPS, those include animations, textures, meshes, sounds, GUI systems, and many more. From FPS to RPG to RTS.... there is a small jump for skilled programmer.

From all engines that are reasonably available for developer teams (or single dev - like me), this one is:
- cheapest option by far, for only 10 eur per month you get access to considerable C++ source, and ability to publish any game during that time with 0 royalties or hidden costs!
- greatly tuned to be usable with minimal change (out of the box look is matchless)
- access to C++ source code (to a level 95% programmers would ever need) (you can get whole source contacting them for a contract)
- Extremely powerful Sandbox software, where map and content creating (mannequin, flowgraphs...) is best in its class, all done with 0 need in programming. (People have made RPGs with flowgraphs alone)
- Streamlined communication between C++, lua scripting, xml, flash.
- Scaleform GUI (basically you can make a GUI -or whatever you want- in flash, and then -extremely easily- import it ingame)
- Flowgraphs, intuitive system of rapidly designing game logic (in a few min you can make a regular FPS on a empty map: spawning, enemy spawning, camera, sounds, notifications...etc)
- Engine is designed, for small to huge teams, just look at the dev teams that use this engine and are still in development, for instnance games like : Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Star Citizen, Ryse, Evolve and many many more..
- Most importantly. engine is regulary updated, its imbued with new technology (recent deal with AMD and MANTLET integration)...etc!

GREAT!!

I did allot of reading about this package, at first it was on reviews like this one here on Steam.... There are allot of un-greatful mis-guided brats running around posting up things like "CRAP!!!1!" when you read into it this would reflect their understanding of what they are purchasing. Whilst it is a powerfull state of the art robust development tool it is not a $2.50 everythings done for you, you just choose where the walls go and pick a splash screen, RPG Maker OMG MADE 5 GAMES THIS WEEKEND didnt-actually-make-a-game-game-maker.....sorry there's nothing wrong with people using those programs, they are great gateways to finding passion for Games Development, however time and time again people have given this bad reviews based on the fact it's difficult to use.

Its difficult to use compared to a toaster and easy compared other development suites, think about what you would like to get out of this. It will be time consuming, you will spend allot of time on the CryDev site flicking through the countless bits of documents surrounding the ins and outs of how too and how NOT too.

Another bum wrap I noted is just that, people complained that there isn't any documentation on how to use this thing.... in-correct there is plenty to read and plenty to help you through. I have found everything I have needed so far (extreme beginer user)

It has a powefull easy-to-use sandbox that from what I can see can be used my people like me who are very basic and down the line becomes very powerful and precise. The process to export and playtest a level you are working on is about 7 clicks or something. ALSO THERE IS ALLOT OF INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTATION ON THIS PRODUCT ITS JUST NOT STAPLED TO YOUR THICK HEAD FOR YOU.

In summary,

DO BUY THIS IF -

You are aware that you are purchasing access to tools and an engine which is quite amazing with a great level of support ( if you know how to type into a ♥♥♥♥ing google-esk search bar) and understand you will not knock out a unique AAA game over the weekend. It's really quite great I've learnt allot reading allot of documents and peicing bits and peices together.


DON'T BUY THIS IF -

a) You are upset by what you have read because I've personally offended you.
b) You lack the ability to accept / find that this package has multiple arms including the documentation which is on a website
f) You expect to launch it, wave a wand and laugh with GabeN next weekend about how easy the games industry is to master
u) You intend to spend 0.1 hrs using then trash it with a review
k) You are your mothers brother
u) You have the expectation that you will download the ability to code games at the same time you download this utility
h) You don't have spare time / patience to hone a skill or persue a career and or hobbie.

All seriousness its $9, try it out I've found it quite enjoyable so far.

I've used CryEngine for a few years now. I also dabbled with Unreal, Unity and various other game engines.

For me CryEngine is truly the best 3D realtime rendering engine ever made. Yes Unreal 4 & Unity are simpler engines to learn but once you gain a decent amount of experience with CryEngine you will be blown away and impressed with the engines capabilities. The level of customisation and tweaks allowed are insane, The technology used in the engine is industry leading and docs.cryengine.com provides easy to follow documentation.

CryEngine is as simple as you make it, I could make a basic game in a weekend or I could spend the same time perfecting your particle systems or materials. From what I've seen CryEngine is setup for First-person, Third-person and Racing games but almost any genre of game could be created using it with the exception of voxel-based games.

If you want to make a game that stands out from the crowd, if you want to learn about how game engines work for school or college and if you just want to casually mess around with physics or lighting.. CryEngine is for you.

I highly recommended you try it for at least a month and if you don't like it just cancel your subscription... Easy. Also it's much cheaper than Unreal Engine 4.

[EDIT]
Originally I did not recommend this software due to lack of flexibility and lack of documentation. However I did not give up and entered into the LUA Scripting and C++ Programming section of the engine and it surpised me on how flexible the engine suddenly became. So I edit this review with the mindset that if you have previous programming experience and stick through it along the learning curve this engine might really surprise you. As for lack of documentation, there are some sites on the Internet which although obscure, are very informative. I made this custom google search for those who have queries regarding the API, so just enter the terms here (example "entity sound") : https://www.google.com.mt/cse/publicurl?cx=017013921599352745160:llms9o4nwxu

[ORIGINAL]
It's a good engine but still hugely lacks documentation and support for newcomers. The process is not at all streamlined and you are going to have a hard time trying to create anything other than an FPS. Also, import pipelines for popular 3d model types are still non-existent and trying to import custom models requires substantial effort and work.
