Default Warhorse - CryENGINE 3 Licensed

February 9th, 2012, 22:04
You may recall we revealed Warhorse Studios a few weeks back - a new Czech studio with games like Mafia under the founders' belts who are now working on an RPG. Warhorse has announced they have licensed CryEngine 3 for an "open-world experience":
Prague (Czech Republic) / Frankfurt (Germany), February 9, 2012 – Crytek GmbH (Crytek) and Warhorse Studios are happy to announce that they have closed a licensing deal for Crytek’s proprietary all-in-one game development solution CryENGINE®3. Warhorse Studios is working on an unannounced role-playing game (RPG). The debut title for the studio will combine open-world experience with a rich story and innovative gameplay elements.
Martin Klima, Executive Producer at Warhorse Studios commented: “We looked at every major technology out there and CryENGINE 3 suits our needs perfectly. We are confident it will allow us to make the vision for our game come true.”
“The team at Warhorse Studios consists of industry veterans from AAA classics such as the Mafia franchise and Operation Flashpoint. We’re excited by their vision for an innovative RPG and we are looking forward to working with them to help them achieve that vision with CryENGINE 3.”, said Carl Jones, Director of Global Business Development CryENGINE.

I am super curious about this game. Its lead designer dislikes a LOT of elements in Skyrim and is incredible nitpicking perfectionist, wants to make realistic open world RPG, and has backing of billionaire behind him (thus they can afford CE3 engine). This could be very interesting.
It also helps that Mafia 1 is pretty much the best third person shooter ever made and he was its lead designer as well.

What elements did they dislike? But yes this seems very interesting..

"Warhorse" ? Probably named after the (new) movie ?

That's what I thought. No seriously, the movie is spelled War Horse so probably not.

I did a google search, you should try it some time.

This is what I found.

Anyway, he gives a nice long list we can hold him accountable for with his own game.

I'm looking forward to seeing what other studios can do with CryEngine 3. Crysis 2 was a huge disappointment for me.

Should be interesting, but I think it's kinda silly for a would-be developer to start out by listing what you hate about other successful titles.

Well, unless you're REALLY talented

Otherwise, you should probably do something of note - and THEN explain why it's so much better.

I agree, though he did make one of my all-time favourite games.

If you're talking about Mafia, I agree

One of the very, very few driving/action games I absolutely love. No more than a handful of games have achieved that level of storytelling and world immersion.

"Skyrim has yellow teeth from his mouth stinks, is completely stupid and has gonorrhea. And I am tired of imagining the monsters instead of pleasing curves blonde Helga."



Big words and utterly retarded comparisons from someone who was a Lead Designer for Mafia 2, i could easily find 100+ reasons why that game sucked.. come again when you've released a true open world RPG yourself and someone might take you seriously?
Funny how he couldnt manage to make Mafia 2 a better game than Mafia 1 imo, he's obviously quite clueless.

I'd love to see him mod skyrim and see what he can come up with. That could prove to people he's got things figured out

An open world RPG in support of Cry Engine 3. Now that is something I like to see. And play too.
Obviously it is going to be a high budged game. Lots of hard work.
We shall see,I hope. How it turns out.

The MMO ArcheAge is using the same engine. Supposedly, it looks good and performs well - but it's only in closed beta atm.

Hmm an rpg based on the CryENGINE 3 sign me up as interested. That he is ambitious and wants to make a game better than skyrim makes me more interested.

Just an FYI, he left 2K about year and a half before Mafia 2 was released because he was unhappy with the direction of the game (for example he wrote branching story with 4 endings but it all got scrapped by 2K producers).
His Skyrim Hate article is completely over the top and not to be taken seriously, but some of his criticism is spot on.

I don't mind people who speak their mind, but this article does not speak well for the maturity of it's author, although I must admit that Mafia I was a great game. I hope he has not lost it, like Peter Molyneux.

Time will tell, I guess.
