Good for them. This might make up for the horrendous console-y mess Crysis 2 was.

seems that only the paid version will let you write C++ for it though.. :/

They have promised the 'full featured engine'. Don't recall that being done before.

Expect immense power at your fingertips! :)

People using their epic pwning engine more than likely. If they get developers talking about and using it, there will more likely be games developed using it. People who tinker for instance with the UDK (Unreal Development Kit) have made some pretty cool software.

I think back and remember all the hype about CryEngine and its amazing capacity, yet relatively little has been heard since, not that i actively seek out information about it anymore. I guess thats the reason for the release, promote interest and growth ? Can't really see any other reason

Just a heads up since I was about to post a new thread..

Quote

In August 2011 we will be launching a free CryENGINE SDK. If you want to use it for fun, like all our previous MOD SDKs it will be completely free of charge, to anyone who wants to play with it! You just register, download the SDK with a personalized license key and you're good to go!

We'll be giving you access to the latest, greatest version of CryENGINE 3 - the same engine we use internally, the same engine we give to our licensees, the same engine that powers Crysis 2.

This will be a complete version of our engine, including C++ code access, our content exporters (including our LiveCreate real-time pipeline), shader code, game sample code from Crysis 2, script samples, new improved Flowgraph and a whole host of great asset examples, which will allow teams to build complete games from scratch for PC.

We'll also be sharing our documentation with you, which is written by the developers of the engine, and we'll be giving you a new and improved crymod.com. We'll update the Free CryENGINE SDK regularly, to make sure you have access to all the advances we make to CryENGINE 3.
