Celebrate the holidays with seasonal assets

Pick up some seasonal assets from the CRYENGINE Marketplace.

Winter is well and truly here, so we’re casting our eyes over the CRYENGINE Marketplace to pick out some seasonal assets inspired by, or perfect for, the winter period. 

If you’re looking to create a winter wonderland, then you’ll want to check out a range of awesome textures from the aptly named Game Textures. They’ve got you covered with their Windswept Snow, Icy Snowfield, Clumpy Snow, and Snow Swept Cliff Face packs, which are all prepared for physically-based shading, and ideal for a range of effects from a light, holiday season dusting of snow to creating a full icy tundra. 


Once you’ve created your snowscape, give your players a perfect vantage point with this beautiful, ready-to-go hot air balloon from Qlaud_Yoshima. This asset includes realistic materials, moving cloth, and includes FBX files.


Of course, you’ll most likely want your players to be able to cross your snow scene on foot too, and the S23 Winter Footsteps Collection from Studio 23 will help you ensure that your level sounds as good as it looks. Featuring 330 high-quality audio Wav files, this pack covers multiple snow and ice footstep types, including 43 loops and sequences. It includes walking, jogging, and running sounds, each with an ambient and clean version, depending on your needs. It’s a highly-flexible and super-organized pack.


If you want more seasonal sounds, then check out the Christmas Sound Effects Bundle from audiofnx. Including 175 high-quality recordings, this collection includes sleigh bell loops, bells, twinkle sounds, and Christmas ornament sound effects. You can also check out a slimmed-down asset pack featuring 25 of the assets in the bundle in the 25 Christmas Sound Effects Pack.


We absolutely love the Winter Forest Pack from CGTrader. This collection of gorgeous hand-painted assets includes fences, signs, rocks, and snow-capped trees, ideal for a charming and stylized fantasy winter scene.


With The Climb out now on Oculus Quest, now’s a great time to download our free asset pack featuring a range of wintry props and more. The collection includes polar bears, arctic foxes, and birds of prey, all with animations, and there is a great range of rock, waterfall, and river assets so you can create a wilderness for them to explore.


All of these assets and more are available on the CRYENGINE Marketplace. If you pick up an asset that makes a difference for your project, don’t forget to leave a review. And if you’re looking for a specific asset to help you, but somehow can’t find it, let us know on the forum, or via Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to join the community and our CRYENGINE development team over on our official CRYENGINE Discord channel.
