It wouldn’t be a Game Developer’s Conference without some middleware upselling. First we have Crytek’s CryEngine 3. It starts with a demo reel of games powered by their engine before getting into the nitty gritty.
It’s a nice little off screen capture of the trailers, but it doesn’t quite match the trailer Epic put out for their Unreal Engine 3 updates.
Epic’s trailer showcased a wide range of platforms including Adobe Flash, Vita, iOS and the usual candidates. That’s far more impressive than the handful of no-name games (except Mechwarrior Online) that Crytek showed off. But most importantly, Unreal Engine 3 continues to look awesome. I look forward to GDC 2013 where we’ll hopefully be seeing Unreal Engine 4 making its debut.
