Cyprus-based studio using engine for upcoming online title

Cypriot publisher Troxit and its development subsidiary Panzar Studio have licensed CryTek's CryEngine 2.

The engine will be used on Forged by Chaos, a new online fantasy game with RPG elements, and was picked for its DirectX 10 capabilities and its showcase in Crysis.

“The release of Crytek's latest computer game – Crysis, powered by their revolutionary CryEngine 2, opened new horizons for us. CryEngine 2 combined a number of innovative programming ideas and creative decisions to create product which eliminated a lot of the previous limitations which used to exist for game developers," said CEO Vladimir Valkov.

"We were also impressed by their handy Sandbox 2 editor, which was designed to work with very expansive and highly detailed locations, their modern dynamic lighting model, and their character animation systems, including inverse kinematics and dynamics. With all these amazing features there was no other alternative for us except to license this remarkable software product. Today we pleased to announce that we have successfully entered into the license agreement.”

Faruk Yerli, managing director of Crytek, added: “CryEngine 2, with its versatile capabilities, is the perfect fit for Troxit Services/Panzar Studios' promising and ambitious online fantasy project Forged by Chaos. We feel very confident the studio’s unique creative talent and experience combined with our tools and technology will result in an outstanding gaming experience.”
