The newly developed cryENGINE 3 looks astonishing, This engine is the only all-in-one game development solution for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that is truly next-gen ready. Any game made on this will be so lifelike you might think that it was a recording.
The Source of its power has DirectX 11 graphics with real-time rendering making this one of the most powerful Engines of all time. New tools for the engine allow for tessellation in real-time, improved ocean and water rendering, enhanced character technology, and dynamic volumetric light beams and light shaft effects. These new tools can be appreciated in the beautiful visuals of Crysis 3, from the lush environments and lighting effects, to the detailed characters.
As you might have seen if you Played Crysis 2 on the PC it was very graphically challenging, and if you didn’t have a top of the range graphics card you had no hope of running it. With the new engine everything will react like it is in real life with no exceptions, if you want to shoot through a barrier you can shoot the barrier apart if you get the right places, if you want to blow up a building so it will collapse, set down your C4 and get ready for a spectacular fire show. (with obvious exceptions like storyline buildings)
Below is a short but encouraging video of what the new cryENGINE can do.
