Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 20 June 2015 at 08:50 AM EDT. 9 Comments
Last month we found out Crytek was finally moving along with their Linux support and now with yesterday's release of CryENGINE 3.8.1, the Linux and OpenGL rendering support is in place.

CryENGINE 3.8.1 brings a full-featured OpenGL renderer to go in hand with the Linux support. For now at least the Sandbox Editor only runs on Windows but there's full Linux support for produced games.

CryENGINE 3.8.1 also brings Oculus Rift support, rendering/graphics improvements, support for 3ds Max 2016, and many other changes.

More details on CryENGINE 3.8.1 via the release announcement.
