Pick up WarpSpeed's NASA assets and check out GalaxSys, a mesmerizing twin-stick shooter sample project, all for free on CRYENGINE Marketplace.
The CRYENGINE Marketplace is home to a huge range of engine-ready assets ready to drop into your scenes. Today, we're checking out a selection of free assets, perfect for all kinds of adventures into outer space.
The NASA Perseverance Rover (Mars 2020) is a true to scale 3D model of the Perseverance rover launched by NASA on July 30, 2020, and scheduled to land in Jezero crater on the Red Planet on February 18, 2021. The rover's mission is to seek out and identify signs of ancient life and return to Earth. What will your players discover with it?
Once referred to as the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility, the Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO)is a flagship-class space telescope launched back in 1999. It's been beautifully converted and optimized for CRYENGINE, ready to orbit your scenes.
If you feel like reaching for the sun with your project, the Parker Solar Probe might be the ideal asset for you. This true to scale 3D model was named after renowned physicist Eugene Newman Parker before it set off on its mission in 2018.
Feeling a little curious? Then be sure to grab the Curiosity Rover (MSL) and set it off on an epic journey of exploration and discovery in your own game. This model is embellished with dirt, conveying the fact that this rover is still roaming around on the surface of Mars.
WarpSpeed teleports us all the way back to 1999 yet again with a stunningly converted and optimized rendition of Lockheed's robotic space probe that was sent into space to collect dust samples from the Wild 2 comet. Download the Stardust – Space Probe for free today.
If you find yourself out in the far reaches of outer space in desperate need of phoning home, or you just want a meticulously crafted satellite dish to hand in your asset folder, then be sure you add this expertly replicated Sat Dish 70m – Deep Space Network (DSN) asset to your game today. You can also grab a satellite dish in a downsized, 34-meter version.
The Voyager – Space Probe is one of the more veteran probes in this collection of space-themed assets up for grabs on the CRYENGINE marketplace right now. The Voyager was sent to space back in 1977 (the same year Star Wars hit screens, believe it or not) and is still zipping through space on its journey of discovery.
GalaxSys is a pulse-pounding twin-stick shooter developed by a foursome of developers here at CRYENGINE, including VFX/3D Artist/Level Designer, Viktor Ikkes, Gameplay Programmer/Gameplay Mechanics Designer, Alex Klinger, Audio designer/Producer, Chris Schilling, and Gameplay Programmer/UI Designer, Jeremy Wade.
We sat down and talked with Alex and Jeremy to find out more about the project on our blog. The duo provides plenty of tips on how to get the most out of investigating the sample project.
Once you're done reading all about, grab it from the CRYENGINE Marketplace and give the game a whirl before expanding or reimagining it in whichever way you desire.
And for all the important info on the GalaxSys Sample Project head over to the GalaxSys Documentation page for more on the team's beautiful, rapidly-created twin-stick shooter.
You will get the most out of this sample project if you are already comfortable with using CRYENGINE. If you are entirely new to CRYENGINE, we recommend you download our beginner's course or check out our introductory YouTube playlist.
We can't wait to see what you can do with these assets. If you're making something cool with CRYENGINE, let us know on the forum, or via Facebook and Twitter. You can ask questions, pick up tips and tricks, and more by joining our community and the CRYENGINE development team over on our official CRYENGINE Discord channel.If you find a bug in the engine, please report it directly on GitHub, which helps us to process the issue quickly and efficiently. Don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, where we host a range of content, including tutorials covering all aspects of the engine and game design.
