The CryENGINE 3 SDK 3.4.0 DX11 update is out now and you can play with it for free. Check out some of the visuals below to see what can be achieved with the SDK (assuming you have a beefy enough rig) and prepare to be blown away.
While some of the effects are stunning, such as the particle shadowing, it’s the realization that we may finally have water effects that look decent that has me excited.
Here’s the develeoper minimum system requirements if you’re interested in trying out the SDK
- Operating System: Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista SP1, Windows 7
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 2GHz or better (a multi-core processor is strongly recommended)
- Memory: 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended)
- Video Card: nVidia 8800GT 512MB RAM, ATI 3850HD 512MB RAM or better (SM 3.0 minimum)
