Crytek’s Video Game Engine CryEngine Is Now Free

Crytek has announced that CryEngine will now allow a “pay what you want” model to allow access to the engine and source code for little or no money. CryEngine V, the newest version, will also allow for virtual reality development for its users.

Crytek had this to say in a press release:

“CRYENGINE V launches today with a “Pay What You Want” business model, offering developers everywhere total access to the engine’s feature-set and full engine source code for a fee of their choosing, and with no obligation to pay royalties or additional service charges.”

I am glad this option will be available to those who might want to develop games but cannot afford to dish out a tremendous amount of money for a quality video game engine. What are your thoughts?
