Crytek to attend GDC Europe in Cologne, Germany
Frankfurt am Main (Germany), August 11th 2009 - International game developer Crytek will be demonstrating their highly acclaimed all-in-one game development solution, CryENGINE"®3, at this year's GDC Europe (August 17th – 19th) in Cologne, Germany at their booth #131. The award-winning engine developer will show the powerful new "CryENGINE"® LiveCreate™" system.  CryENGINE"® LiveCreate™ adds real-time multi-platform editing of game content to Crytek's original What You See Is What You Play CryENGINE"®3 Sandbox™ editor, allowing genuine, synchronized cross platform game development for the first time. "CryENGINE"® LiveCreate™ allows developers to work with a single editor, but see and play the results in real-time on PC, PS3 and Xbox360, hooked up to a single dev PC.  The engine takes care of the conversion and optimization of assets in real-time; enables instant, cross-platform changes to any part of game creation and as a result materially increases the speed and significantly reduces the risk of multiplatform development.  Multiple teams are no longer necessary for simultaneous cross platform development – all you need now is much larger desks!" said Carl Jones, Director of Business Development for CryENGINE. First publicly previewed at the last Game Developers' Conference in San Francisco, where it was without doubt one of the standouts of the show, CryENGINE"®3 has already been licensed to a number of major companies around the globe. Crytek's Engine Licensing Team will be available during the show for meetings to discuss licensing details with prospective clients. In addition, Crytek will be hosting a series of public presentations of LiveCreate™, CryENGINE"®3 Console and the CryENGINE"® 3 Sandbox™ Editor at their booth #131.
