check out the engine here: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-11-cryengine-3/711208

absolutely stunning.

check out licensed gaming projects on the engine here:  http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-11-cryengine-3/711210

Pay special attention to the Unknown MMO game running on the Cryengine 3. Soms scenes remind me of Uncharted 2.

Also the game ArcheAge Online that has been known for running on the Cryengine 2, will make the step to Cryengine 3. What we can expect from the update is still unknown.

    Some of  those games looked downright terrible (S.W.A.T.) and wasn't this Archeage footage Cry2.  I mean I've seen the videos they took that from and those have been out for a very long time now.  But the other TBA MMO looked amazing (Archeage did too, but I think they are misbranding).

    making MMOs that 49% PCs worldwide will move at snails' pace and 49% PCs will implode when tryin to launch

    great idea or greatest idea?

     

    apparently devs havent learned jack from Dark and Light or Vanguard. Push for the limit with the specs and you have effectively shut the door for the vast majority of your target audience.

     

    not to mention, when has eyecandy meant a good game? afaict, never, when devs focus on shining the game mechanics hurt...

    It's all about scalability. An engine that can't scale up depending on your machine or scale up depending on future improvements ends up being junk after a number of years, especially in the MMO space, where you have these games running for decades.

  • WuushuWuushu StockholmPosts: 53Member

    You don't build an MMO-engine to be futureproof for "decades" ahead. Simply not possible knowing what techniques/hardware will exist in 10 years time. However updating it with frequent intervals is the way to go. :)

  • XasapisXasapis VolosPosts: 5,561Member Uncommon

    Well, MMOs are long term projects. When you start building one you're looking at a 3-5 years period before you actually launch and then you expect the game to hold strong for at least 3 years. So planning ahead for a decade or more is not that far fetched.

    I don't think you understand it well. First off, The Cryengine 3 runs ALLOT smoother than the Cryengine 2, so it is actually decreasing the system specs. Second off, maxing out graphics is only for the people who actually can. You DON'T have to. If you have an 3/4 yeard old PC it will run fine, on low (and even than it will look better than most MMO's out there). Besides, many people want good graphics.
