CRYENGINE is a real-time game development solution that allows professionals to design virtual games with the help of visuals, sandbox, animation, artificial intelligence, and audio editing tools. It includes integrated buoyancy and water simulation module that lets you set water simulation with automatic wave redistribution on the surface.
CRYENGINE encompasses various features like in-game profiling, audio abstraction, rendering real-time local reflections, anti-aliasing, parallax occlusion mapping, etc. CRYENGINE offers thread management functionalities that enable you to schedule, monitor, and manage parallel computation in a centralized repository. It is an AI-powered solution with modular sensory systems that helps developers to add and automate behaviors and locomotion of characters

CryEngine is the most advanced graphics rendering game engine for realistic game development. It comes with a WYSWYP sandbox allowing you to develop and test your game seamlessly. Features realistic physics simulation, real-time illumination, and easy to use audio translation layer. CryEngine is free to use for production and just needs 5% of the profit made while using it commercially.
I really like how you can create graphically stunning games with a focus on FPS and terrain with CRYENGINE. Also, the Physics engine here is really robust and I love the destruction models built in to it, along with the water simulation and vegetation touch bending feature. These features together can get you on the fast track of making a very fun game. Finally, I loved that a good chunk of game assets that were used in CRYTEK games were already available to use in the marketplace.
Cryengine is most famous for the visuals it provides and once was the staple in the industry. With its considerable revenue model, it’s one of the best game engines to use to create a visually stunning game.
