Crytek to release CryENGINE 3 SDK for free

Most, if not all, FPS (first person shooter) gamers know about game company Crytek who has produced games such as Far Cry and Crysis, both of which featured stellar graphics and immersive gameplay. If you did not already know, both games were created using Crytek’s very own engine, CryENGINE, and if you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on the SDK, it looks like your chance is here.

Crytek has announced that they will be releasing their CryENGINE 3 SDK to developers, and the best part is that the SDK will be free! However the catch is that it has to be used for developing games/mods for non-commercial use.

It will feature CryENGINE 3’s Sandbox level editor which is a “What you see is what you play” tool that the company claims was designed by, and for professional gamers. The SDK will come with documentation and Crytek has promised that updates will be provided regularly.

For those who may have plans to take their creations commercial and start charging a fee, Crytek is offering a royalty-free license model, where 20% of the developer’s revenues will go to Crytek from the game’s launch. Sounds pretty cool and we can’t wait to start seeing games/mods being pushed out that is running on CryENGINE 3.

For more information just head on down to and who knows, perhaps we might start to see CryENGINE 3 versions of Counter-Strike and Team Fortress Classic, both of which were highly success mods based on a heavily modified Quake engine.
