Crytek confirms Linux support for the new Cryengine

Cryengine to get Linux support

Crytek has confirmed that the new CryEngine will have full native support, spilling the beans in a teaser of what they’ll be showing off at GDC next week in San Francisco.

Alongside CryEngine working on Linux, the developer and publisher will be showing off the new Warface modes, Tower Raid and Capture.

As well as getting Linux support, the new CryEngine has been updated with the features used to create mediocre Xbox One launch title, Ryse.

New features include a new Physically Based Shading render pipeline, which uses real-world physics to simulate reality lighting and materials.
