The game engine behind one of the best games around the market (Crysis and Far Cry) is now adding support to Linux, Oculus Rift and Android TV with their newest 3.8.1 update.
This is big news , because Crytek is pushing into the VR market , which might be the next big thing on the upcoming years. The update consists in a full license and Engine-as-a-Service subscribers to gain access to a new VR tool set so developers can easily port and distribute their games to other platforms.
Since showcasing our own work with VR, we’ve seen an overwhelming response from developers who want to use CRYENGINE for their virtual reality projects as well. Our experience in stereoscopic 3D, combined with the engine’s rendering power and ability to deliver high resolution images at a high frame rate, means CRYENGINE offers a degree of visual fidelity thatmany people feel is foundational to a compelling VR experience.
