CryEngine 3 showcases next-generation, revolutionary soft-body physics

Ah, the power of CryEngine 3. Such an amazing engine with tremendous potential that has not been properly used. It’s sad to be honest because the following physics are what we can expect from next-generation titles. Team BeamNG showcased some amazing soft-body physics that are powered by CryEngine3. According to the team, anything can be built in the Beam physics system – cars, trucks, planes, boats, trains, cranes, tanks, helicopters, and even destructible map objects and crash test dummies. As the team suggests ‘it’s all real physics and anything is possible‘. What you’re about to see is real-time, so keep that in mind. Oh, and this is still an early work in progress so don’t mind the shading and collision issues as the team is already working on fixing them. Enjoy your first glimpse at next-generation physics everyone!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
