Crytek to demo CryEngine on Linux at GDC

New, 13 comments

Crytek, the developer behind games such as Ryse: Son of Rome and Crysis 3, will show off its CryEngine software support for Linux at GDC 2014, the company announced today.

Linux demonstrations will be shown during presentations and hands-on demos at Crytek's booth. GDC attendees will also get hands-on time with free-to-play shooter Warface and upcoming mobile military strategy game The Collectables.

Crytek representatives are expected to give a total of five presentations during GDC, such as "Play the Cutscene: The Characters of Ryse" and "Agile Lessons from Ryse and Crysis 3."

Linux development has been growing in support; last year, Valve announced its Linux-based solution for the living room, SteamOS. Speaking with Polygon last year, DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson said it would only take one "killer" game on Linux for the platform to explode into mainstream gaming.
