    Anyone heard of this mod? Well I did not hear about it until someone told me in a Tf2 match I was playing. This mod is for Crysis so if you are deciding whether or not to get that game now would be the time since Steam has a great sale for it. They just release the open beta I have yet to check it out since their site is down atm, but in the mean time check out their page at moddb:

    Watch the youtube vids instead of the trailer to see actual game play, this mod looks like it has great potential...

    Looks like a really big mod, buy why oh why the crytek engine. Should have used U3 engine so much easier to run and more scalable.

    How do the two engines compare? Can the U3 engine do what the Crytek engine can do?

    Yes/No

    They both have things they can do the other cant, but overall there are a ton of really great looking games on the U3 engine that run great.

    Crysis just looks great and runs like crud.


    I cant even name all the hit titles using the U3 engine.

    Just a few:

    Unreal Tournament 3
    Borderlands
    Bioshock
    Bioshock 2
    Gears of War
    Gears of War 2
    X-Men Origins Wolverine
    Batman Arkham Asylum
    Mirrors Edge

    Crysis the game runs like crud. From what I understand that's down to the game and utilisation though, not the engine, or at least not completely. In general the UE3 seems to produce slightly stylised graphics, althought that may well be down to usage.

    Crytek have never exactly been great at licensing out thier engine, hell Aion is using the Cryengine 1 and is about the only game outside of Farcry running it.

    This Mechwarrior TC has been in development for years as well, I'm pretty sure they've got the hang of the Crysis SDK by now!

    Im actually pretty psyched this is coming out. I've kept a loose eye on it since it was announced years ago.


    Don't get me wrong, I'm not mocking UDK/UE3, but the Cryengine 2 is VERY capable. If my mod team can offer anything close to the polish level it looks like they're aiming for in 2 1/2 years, then I'll be very happy.

    And the best implementation of the U3 engine so far: Shadow Complex.
