Crytek Releases Free CryEngine 3 SDK, Explains Commercial Revshare Model

Crytek Releases Free CryEngine 3 SDK, Explains Commercial Revshare Model

August 17, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi




Crysis series developer Crytek has released a free downloadable SDK for its proprietary CryEngine 3 engine, and has further outlined its revenue share model for commercial applications.

As previously reported, the engine is free to use for non-commercial purposes. However, those wishing to use the engine for commercial products will have to enter into a royalty-only licensing agreement that sees Crytek receiving 20 percent of the game's revenues.

"This SDK contains more toys than we've ever released before -- it empowers people to create whole new games from scratch, not just mod Cryteks own games, so we encourage all aspiring and indie developers to try it out," said Crytek's Carl Jones in a statement.

According to prior statements by CEO Cevat Yerli, this free SDK contains all of the features of its commercial version, saying that it is "the same engine we use internally, the same engine we give to our licensees, the same engine that powers Crysis 2."

The SDK is available to download now at Crydev.net.
