Crysis 2 Mod Tools Coming This Summer
Crysis 2 modders, get your creative caps ready. Crytek has announced that you’ll be getting mod tools for their latest first-person shooter sometime this summer. These mod tools will let you make new maps, items, and other custom content. But, that’s not the end of the support you’ll be getting from Crytek.
They’ve also announced that a CryENGINE SDK will be released in August, and that it will be completely free. The SDK will be a full version of CryENGINE 3, including all of the following:
- C++ code access
- Our content exporters (including our LiveCreate real-time pipeline)
- shader code
- game sample code from Crysis 2
- Script samples
- New improved Flowgraph
- A whole host of great asset examples
In an open letter on Crymod.com, Crytek President & CEO Cevat Yerli said this about the release:
Our next release will be the Crysis 2 Editor, this is for those of you who want to create content for Crysis 2. In August 2011, we will launch our Free CryENGINE SDK for all of you who want to create totally new content on CryENGINE 3. If you just want to make fun, free projects, you can do that free of charge. If you want to try and commercialise your game, we’ll be here to help you with that.
