At the Game Developer's Conference last week, Crytek showed off a demonstation of its powerful game engine CryEngine 3. That footage has now been made publically available.

Eleven new games are said to be currently in development using CryEngine 3, and of course there's not long to wait before the first game to use the engine arrives at the end of March, in the form of Crysis 2.

Taking a dig at Epic Games, who also used the conference to showcase the power of its next-generation Unreal Engine, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told CVG that Epic's engine "would struggle to power Crysis 2."

This better be good then...

Very impressive but, to put it in context, I would need to know the hardware spec used to run it?
Thats all very well and good, but considering they announced Crysis 2 will ship for pc with dx9 only, and that dx11 features would be patched in later…. well I'd trust epic to include all the graphics finery they promise in a release, whereas crytek will show you that tech demo and then ship a dirty console port….
looks good!!

This is all well and good, but needing a nuclear reactor in your house.

Only the very recent cards can even play that at 1920x1080 @ 60 fps

Valve have a far better idea
