Crytek opening access to CryEngine through affordable monthly subscriptions

Posted on March 20, 2014 AT 12:00pm

Crytek is opening access to their proprietary through an “Engineas-a-Service” program that allows independent developers to use all its features for a $9.90 monthly subscription fee.

“When we announced the new CryEngine this was our first step towards creating an engine as a service,” director of business development Carl Jones said in a statement posted to the company’s website. “We are happy to announce now that the latest update of CryEngine will soon be available to all developers on a subscription basis. We are really excited to make CryEngine available to hundreds of thousands of developers working with Crytek to make awesome games.”

This move mirrors Epic Games’ announcement yesterday that Unreal Engine 4 could be licensed for $19 a month.

CryEngine has, of course, powered the first Far Cry as well as all three Crysis games, as well as Turtle Rock’s upcoming a synchronous multiplayer game Evolve, Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome, and Big Red Button’s upcoming take on Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Boom.
