Hot on the heels of Epic announcing a $19 monthly subscription for Unreal Engine 4, Crysis and Ryse developer Crytek has revealed that developers will be able to license its CryEngine for $9.90 a month per user.
Unlike Unreal Engine 4, which asks for 5 percent of revenue made from selling the game, Crytek says that its CryEngine subscription will not require any royalty payments.
"When we announced the new CryEngine, this was our first step towards creating an engine as a service. We are happy to announce now that the latest update of CryEngine will soon be available to all developers on a subscription basis. We are really excited to make CryEngine available to hundreds of thousands of developers working with Crytek to make awesome games,” said Crytek's Carl Jones.
CryEngine is already available for free for those developing software for non-commercial use, but those wanting access to the engine's new features will also need to subscribe to the new plan.
