This morning's dose of graphics eye candy is brought to you by Crytek. The developer has released a CryEngine3 Tech Trailer that shows in-game footage from Crysis 3. Without further ado, here's the embedded video:
Ooooh, pretty. The trailer highlights numerous graphical effects incorporated in the new engine, including volumetric cloud and fog shadowing, pixel-accurate displacement mapping, and all sorts of nifty lens and lighting tricks. The tessellated foliage looks particularly detailed, at least in comparison to those concrete barriers we saw in Crysis 2. I'm not sure what's up with the toad, though.
Crysis 3 is due in February of next year, so it's not too far off. If the finished product looks anything like the trailer, I may have to pick up the game just to walk around and admire the scenery. I've always wanted to wander around the set of Life After People.
