We've seen a lot of impressive recent advancements in a variety of next generation videogame rendering engines, but graphics tech veterans Crytek want to remind us that despite their recent shift in focus from PC to consoles, they're still blazing trails in that area too. The Germany-based company has released their latest CryEngine tech demo video, and as always, it's a gratuitous piece of GPU porn.

The video shows off an array of the new effects that the developer has packed into CryEngine 3, all boasted as having been captured in real-time from the upcoming Crysis 3. For the technically minded, here's what's on offer: Real-time volumetric cloud shadows, pixel accurate displacement mapping, tessellated vegetation, composite 3D lense flares, procedural HDR flares and shapes, 3rd generation real-time global illumination, dynamic water volume caustics, real-time volumetric fog shadows, real-time area lights, unlimited particle FX lighting, integrated cloth & vegetation simulation, top secret tessellated toad tech.

That last point of note perhaps being the most impressive. If you're a fan of high-poly amphibians, hit up the trailer embedded below, or click here for the full 720p spread in our HD vldeo library.

Crysis 3 is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.

CryEngine 3's displacement mapping and tessellation are my favorite features of the engine. I just hope the actual gameplay is as good as the engine

I don't know if we will need big upgrades or not. Dx11 and HR version of Crysis 2 runs pretty damn well on a decent machine today.Apparently this now does all that stuff much more efficiently now. So similar results will need less power. It'll be interesting to see how much the new stuff adds on top of that.

Is it hard for people to look up the game play trailers of that entire levels mission?

you don't need a time machine, just go back and watch the tech engine trailers for crysis 1 and 2 and then play the games.
