Crytek has confirmed it is actively developing the fourth major installment in the Crysis series, which raises the obvious question, can your PC run it? You'll eventually find out, though probably not this year—Crytek says Crysis 4 is in the early stages of development and that it will be a while yet before it... Read more...
Never let it be said that Crytek and its Crysis franchise are not self aware. Proving otherwise, the developers of Crysis Remastered have added a high fidelity setting dubbed "Can It Run Crysis?" to the upcoming PC version of the remake, which promises to tax your system "with unlimited settings." Shown above is a... Read more...
It looks like Crytek is attempting to kill one of the longest running jokes on PC, that being whether or not something can run Crysis.

At this point, it seems one of two possibilities are most likely—either Crytek is getting ready to announce a remastered version of Crysis, complete with support for real-time ray tracing, or the developer is trolling us. The latter does not make much sense, so we are much more inclined to believe the former, based on... Read more...
No, your PC's water cooling loop did not spring a leak (we hope not, anyway), it is just sweating in the face of a rumored Crysis remake potentially being in the works. While nothing is certain (yet), the official Twitter account for Crysis posted a cryptic tweet hinting that something is afoot. Could it be a remaster... Read more...
Many would not argue that the holy grail of graphics rendering is real-time ray tracing, and there are industry-wide efforts to make that a reality. Real-time ray tracing is computationally demanding, though, which is why today's solutions only ray trace parts of a scene, and not the entire thing. This also requires... Read more...
The developers behind Star Citizen, the much hyped and still unreleased space trading and combat video game, are facing a lawsuit filed by Crytek over the use of its CryEngine game engine. Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) and Roberts Space Industries (RIS), both of which were co-founded by Chris Roberts, creator of the Wing... Read more...
It seems as though Crytek is having a cash flow problem again. The company announced on its website that it is making a "series of changes to its future business plans" as it looks to refocus its efforts on developing games and game development technology.

Today, AMD is holding its “Capsaicin” webcast in which it is talking about all of its latest initiatives in the graphics realm, including virtual reality (VR) and a powerful graphics card that we’ve been talking about for months. On the topic of VR, we all know that it has a huge potential to make waves in the... Read more...
We use a bevy of benchmarks here at HotHardware to measure everything from computational power to SSD speeds to the graphical prowess of $1000 video cards. I employ 3DMark's Fire Strike software on a near-daily basis for my GPU testing and find that, while it can't perfectly mirror in-game performance, it's a pretty... Read more...
Crytek is bringing Ryse: Son of Rome to the PC platform.

The news comes during... Read more...
We've detailed Crytek's problems in several previous posts, and it's now clear that it wasn't just the company's UK studios that were affected. Crytek announced today that it has officially moved development of its F2P shooter "Hunt: Horrors of the Guilded Age" to Germany -- ignoring the fact that the majority of the US team had apparently...

Last week, we reported on the problems dogging Crytek, with UK staff allegedly going unpaid and increasing concerns over the company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Eurogamer is reporting that Crytek... Read more...
One of the ongoing questions around AMD's Mantle API is how much support it would garner in actual shipping titles. True, EA had committed to adding support to the Frostbite engine, but that's the kind of announcement that can be quietly swept under the rug or might be integrated into the engine but with a minimal...

Nvidia may have just announced GameWorks support will be baked into Unreal Engine 4, but the Red Team is firing back with its own announcement today: Upcoming versions of Cryengine will support AMD's Mantle API. Just to be clear, this announcement refers to an upcoming engine that hasn't been used for a shipping title... Read more...
Linux users have long championed their platform of choice as a viable option for gaming, and with solutions like WINE having been around for quite some time, playing games on a Linux box is certainly nothing new. However, there's been a recent push to promote the open source platform as a gaming powerhouse, especially by Valve with its Steam... Read more...
So long, THQ, and thanks for the pie.

Normally we don't cover games that are still in alpha. While beta coverage is typically a good example of how final gameplay is shaping up, alpha is a time when major design elements are still in flux.
