The CryEngine Software Development Kit (SDK), originally called the Sandbox Editor, is the current version of the level editor used to create levels for CryEngine by Crytek. The software also includes tools to facilitate scripting, animation, and object creation. It has been incorporated into various Crytek games (including but not limited to Crysis and Far Cry), and is widely used for modding. The editing style is a sandbox concept, with an emphasis on large areas and a free-form mission programming style. The editor can also create internal customizations.

More about CryEngine V

The CRYENGINE V engine also offers expanded support for virtual reality glasses.

With the new version of the engine, Crytek is also moving to a new business model - "pay as you go". As the name implies, this means that game developers can get full access to the features of the engine and source code for the price they offer.

The CRYENGINE Marketplace has also been launched. Here, game developers can use add-ons from the Crytek library or thousands of pieces of content created by other developers.

"CRYENGINE V epitomizes our commitment by not only offering developers the most advanced graphics engine, but also making it as easy to access as possible. The addition of the CRYENGINE Marketplace, engine UI updates, and new support channels will make it even easier to harness the power of CRYENGINE, all at a price to suit everyone. "The goal of our pay-as-you-go model is the community, and we hope to strengthen the collaboration between us and developers, as well as the users themselves," said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek.
