Crytek known from its very popular first-person shooter Far Cry promised better Linux support in the very near future, with its CRYENGINE game engine.
CRYENGINE 3.7 features several new additions & improvements like:
- Character Tool – This new tool unifies the previous Character Editor, the Animation Importer, the Animation Compression Editor and the DBA Editor in one comprehensive tool, with a completely reworked UI.
- Audio Translation Layer – With the Audio Translation Layer allowing users to use any audio middleware of their choice.
- Improved Temporal Anti-Aliasing – With just a minimal performance overhead, it provides a vastly more stable image by applying projection matrix jittering.
- All-new map: Woodland – Built up from the ground with full support for Physics-Based Rendering.
The recent published EULA from CRYENGINE mentions “with one of our next updates” will come the OpenGL/Linux support.
