Grab the toolset used to create Crysis 2 today, for free.
Crytek wants to see what modders can do with CryEngine 3, and aspiring designers now have the chance to accept the challenge. The CryEngine 3 software development kit is now available for download.
The all-in-one SDK -- the same tools the Crytek team used to create Crysis 2
-- features C++ code access, content exporters, shader code, game sample code from Crysis 2, script samples, and asset examples, giving aspiring designers the tools to build a complete game from the ground up. And if you come up with something special, Crytek wants to know about it.

"If you want to use it to make a game to launch commercially, we'd like to help you with that," Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement. "If you want to take your product down a traditional commercial route, we will offer an innovative low cost licensing model if you want to release your game digitally."
