Crytek Unveils CryENGINE Updates, Back To Dinosaur Island Demo
Yesterday’s graphics talk may have been about Unreal Engine 4, but today is Crytek’s turn to wow the crowds at the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC). The company has unveiled the latest iteration of the acclaimed CryENGINE, complete with trailers showcasing the technology in action and the work of various CryENGINE licensees.
Crytek is employing CryENGINE in another item unveiled at GDC, a new demo entitled ‘Back to Dinosaur Island’ which is being shown using Oculus VR’s Crescent Bay virtual reality headset.
Crytek producer Fatih Özbayram described the contents of the demo via Twitter:
“Our demo has a variety of interactions. One of them is the interaction with a Hollywood feel T-Rex which mimics your head movements. The narrative [of] our demo is you being a baby dinosaur sitting in the middle of a nest of other dinosaur babies about to hatch. We’ve chosen dinosaurs as we wanted to nod to the origins of Crytek.”
