Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, is FREE! That is, for one weekend it’s free. But it’s still pretty cool.
Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, has received its first post-launch update. For now the update is exclusive to the PC version.
Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, is officially on sale for XBox. You’re a gun-toting hunter in nineteenth-century Louisiana, and you’re knee-deep in a swamp swarming with more than just alligators. Deadly monsters roam around these parts, and their hides fetch a pretty penny. But it’s not just them you have to watch out for — it’s every hunter for themselves, and the others have no qualms with eliminating the competition!
An unsanctioned peek at the early development stages of a video game is always interesting, even if that game is Ryse: Son of Rome, the failed launch title for the XBox One. Though it came out in 2013, the game was in development at Crytek all the way back in 2006, and was originally intended for the XBox 360. And that’s not all…
Last week we told you about CRYENGINE, developed by European video game publisher CRYTEK. Like most third-party engines out there, CRYENGINE is free to download and develop with, but if you sell something with it, CRYTEK gets a royalty cut of each sale. (Unless your product is a flop — the company does not count the first $5,000 earned.)
The European video game publisher CRYTEK makes games, publishes games, and helps you create your own games — that latter business is accomplished by their physics engine CRYENGINE. Like most third-party engines out there, CRYENGINE is free to download and develop with, but if you sell something with it, CRYTEK gets a royalty cut of each sale. (Unless your product is a flop — the company does not count the first $5,000 earned.)
One of the most important aspects of gaming for the vast majority of players is how good games look. Since the humble beginnings of video games that had the graphical capability of a calculator, we now have access to a multitude of games that offer visuals that are becoming increasingly realistic. According to Crytek rendering engineer Nicolas Schulz, who was peaking to DSO Gaming, this has made it much harder to impress gamers with graphics than it was in the past. Next generation consoles and high-end PCs are able to handle higher resolutions and push more computing power to rendering objects, but this means that it becomes harder for games to stand out on graphics alone as there is a levelling effect on what developers can achieve.
Crytek has announced that Ryse: Son of Rome will be coming to PC on October 10.
Continued reports across various media outlets in the video game industry suggest that developer Crytek, best known for their Crysis games, are in serious financial troubles. This follows recent reports of continued layoffs across multiple studios within the industry, painting a grim picture for the industry as a whole. So are Crytek on the verge of bankruptcy? We’ll have a look at the evidence so far, but initial reports and signs aren’t looking good.
Crytek have explained that their new MOBA, Arena of Fate, will be a much more streamlined game. They have tailor made the title so that it will not frustrate newcomers by removing confusing elements and changing gameplay to better suit co-operation.
At gamescom today, Microsoft Studios together with Crytek, debuted Gladiator Mode, the cooperative multiplayer experience of Ryse: Son of Rome and an in-depth look at never-before-seen features and refinement to the game’s combat.(more…)
