Free CryENGINE Plans

Develop has word that Crytek plans on releasing a free version of their upcoming CryENGINE 3, similar to the free version of the Unreal engine Epic offers as the Unreal Development Kit. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli tells them, "we do want to make a standalone free platform that people can run independent of CryEngine that will also be up to speed with the latest engine." Thanks VG247.

"free version" does not mean "Cryengine is free".

The recently-freed UE3 comes with its own caveat:

According to the current EULA, game makers can sell their games by paying Epic a lump-sum of $99 at the outset, and 25% of all revenue above $5000

A full Unreal engine licence will set you back a quarter million dollars. Yes, I know UDK does not give you access to the source code. But still $99.00 is a bargain considering. And if you pay them the 5 grand up front, you can keep your royalties. Here's hoping Crytek does something similar. But it's clearly a step in the right direction for them to grow thier buisness and user base.
