CRYENGINE from Crytek Announces Official Linux Support Ahead Of GDC

Posted by , / 38383 views
CRYENGINE one of the most advanced game engines around powering a ton of games has finally announced official Linux support, so Crytek how about some Crysis on Linux?

More likely is that we could see their free online FPS "Warface" get ported, as that is what they are focusing on right now (apart from Mobile).

QuoteDuring presentations and hands-on demos at Crytek's GDC booth, attendees can see for the first time ever full native Linux support in the new CRYENGINE.

Oh man, it has NEVER been a better time to be a Linux gamer.

I shall pass the cake and hats around, you will find me drunk in a corner somewhere celebrating.

The Far Cry series hasn't used CRYENGINE since Crytek sold the franchise to Ubisoft. But Kingdom Come is using CRYENGINE and Warhorse announced from the start of their Kickstarter that the game would be coming to Linux as well.

That is awesome news!

I would love to see a technical presentation on how they ported it, if they have a translation layer from D3D to OpenGL like Valve, what OpenGL extensions do they use, if they are planning to become a Khronos member along Valve, Epic and Unity. Too many questions.

This has been in the works for a while, but didn't think we'd hear anything yet. I guess we'll hear more in a couple of weeks, but I wonder if it's only the engine, or if their development toolchain will also work under Linux.

ok, I'm not the brightest button, but does this mean any cry engine game can be ported over with little effort?

Well, not any game. It would need to be a game that was made with the ported versions so older games are unlikely.

I doubt many developers will "do a Valve" and port their really old games.
