CryENGINE 3 v3.4.4 Winter Edition Released

Explore a winter wonderland and play with a range of fun new frozen assets
Crytek has announced the launch of a new update to the SDK (Software Development Kit) of CryENGINE 3, a development platform for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC (DX9/DX10/DX11). The CryENGINE 3.4.4 Winter Edition update features a modified version of the forest level that is included with the free SDK, helping users to learn more about adding a touch of sub-zero style to any environment. Major highlights of the update include the refactoring and development of a new entity for simulating weather called the snow entity. Similar to the rain entity, this feature applies a frozen material layer to all objects within a set radius, and has been improved since early iterations to enhance performance.
