CRYENGINE is on Twitch!

We're launching our official Twitch channel today, with a full schedule of tutorial content to accompany devcom. Get involved!

We're delighted to invite you to join us over on our official CRYENGINE Twitch channel, launching today to coincide with devcom. Our first stream will be today, August 17, at 17:00 GMT +2, and your host will be Roman Perezogin, Junior Technical Designer for CRYENGINE, aka Cry-Journey. He will be presenting the first of ten sessions as part of the CRYENGINE Summer Academy, running through to August 30. Our Twitch channel lets you watch streams from CRYENGINE experts, covering a range of different topics about our engine and game development in general, so like and follow us on Twitch and invite your friends to join us too.

The CRYENGINE Summer Academy is kicking off our Twitch launch, with ten live sessions in which we will build a game from scratch together. We'll have hosts and special guests guiding you every step of the way and sharing their expertise and real-world stories. The sessions will cover all the tools and features in the engine that you need to create a full game. We'll also be hosting a special animation AMA. We will be running six sessions this week, and you can check out the schedule below:
