Witness the power of CryENGINE 3 in full flow on Xbox One. New features like Crytek’s Virtual Camera hardware provide more directorial power than ever before, meaning developers can make lighting, environment and effects changes on the spot to create a more immersive game world. Meanwhile, advanced Vertex Animation combines with numerous other new features to set new standards for facial animation and realism. At every turn, CryENGINE’s power is put to work not just to change what you see on-screen, but how you connect to the action too.
