That's promising, it's a solid engine. Happy that they're not going with a horrible in-house one or your standard engine that every game seems to use that looks like it came from 2003 or something. Now I want to see some screenshots of what they can do with it :)

@edgecrusherO0

I think someone forgot what 2003 looked like:

@Fakeassname See, that's what caught my eye, too, because the development team for Living Legends said specifically they weren't going to CryEngine 3, because it couldn't do everything they wanted it to do.

I guess when you've got a whole development team and a license to the code, it might be a lot easier, eh?

The CryEngine?

I have to say my first thought was an engine powered by QQ...

Same here!

(Well, not exactly. I know the engine, but I also think of the emotion, too!)

I guess this means it's going to be a lobby shooter. I mean I can't see large scale battles being done with that engine. I'd actually be reassured if the mechs looked plainer and less visually impressive, that means they were focusing on getting lots of them on screen.

@Dblade Actually, the Cryengine is quite scalable. The reason it doesn't fair so well in Crysis 2 is that they screwed up the water layers in some areas (it was present when there was no water).

Pretty much any engine can be made scalable with a decent team at the helm.

@Dblade The CryEngine is used in Aion, a fairly large MMO. It scales very well, and looks great to boot.

@(Unverified) Not really, the crytek engine was so bad in aion for large scale battles you had to turn models completely off just to fight in them.

That should keep the graphics whores happy.

This game cannot be released fast enough.

I have been going through mech-simulator withdrawal for too long.
