Upgrading from an older Version?

If you are upgrading your project from CRYENGINE 5.4, please read this topic: Upgrading from CRYENGINE 5.4 to CRYENGINE 5.5

For more information on Code Interface Changes, see the Important CRYENGINE 5.5 Data and Code Changes article.

Upgrade Paths

If your project was created using a C++ or C# template, and you have not modified its source code:

  • Create a new template of the same type in the CRYENGINE Launcher and then copy your modified assets over. This is much easier than fixing the template code to match the new engine interfaces.

If your project was created using a C++ or C# template, and you have modified its source code:

  • You will need to manually fix code errors caused by the engine interface changes. Please see the aforementioned Data & Code-Change Article for more information on what has changed.
