New to CRYENGINE? Our Getting Started Guide has got you covered!

You asked for it – we’ve done it. If you’re new to CRYENGINE or a veteran who just wants to brush up on the latest and most important features, you can now download our Getting Started With CRYENGINE guide.

There are all kinds of ways to learn or deepen your CRYENGINE knowledge, whether that’s through video tutorials, our extensive documentation (including comprehensive manuals and sections dedicated to the areas you need) or simply by joining the community and swapping knowledge on our forums.

Today, we’re adding a new way for you to get up and running quickly with CRYENGINE. We’ve had a lot of requests for a quick-start guide that you can use offline, so we’re pleased to share a PDF which covers everything you need to start your new CRYENGINE project. From the basics of managing projects, installing plugins, and getting started with the sandbox editor to a full glossary of CRYENGINE terms, you can find it all in our new document here.

This document was put together in direct response to community requests, and we’re always looking at how we can improve our learning offerings. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback, comments, and questions on our forums, Facebook, and Twitter and keep your suggestions coming.

    Now that you made the engine free no royalties no shits something awesome for all developers to hear thank you for that, personally i'm a unity developer who develop with C#. When i heard that CRYENGINE supports C# now i was amazed and i', going to try it. Now that it's optimized and runs better even on old pc it will attract many developers, but what's wrong?? YOUR DOCUMENTATION please make something for it. Some employee should do scripting tutorials and write some documentation, if I had the knowledge I would do that for free since you are too lazy or idk why. I think that you get to work and do some clean and detailed documentation. That's missing step from getting a lot users.

    I like the good old Far Cry Editor manual that came with the first Crytek's game. There was 250 pages and a detailed documentation on how to work with Sandbox 1 editor. It came in multiple languages. I learned from it and it was very helpful for the complete beginner. I would like to see something like that in the future, people will appreciate it.
