105,000 downloads for Crytek SDK

CryEngine 3 SDK provokes massive response after just five days

The launch of Crytek's SDK as a free download has been a huge success, with 10,5229 downloads at the time of writing.

"With the release of our SDK we encourage creators to try out CryEngine 3 and hope it will lead to new companies being formed and using our engine," said director of global business development Carl Jones when the news was announced.

The CryEngine 3 SDK was released five days ago, and is free for non-commerical use. Crytek will take a 20 per cent cut of any revenue for commerical development.

The SDK can be downloaded from Crytek's official site.
