Alienware Collaborates with Crytek to Provide New Experiences for Gamers
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Alienware, a pioneer in specialty high-performance PC gaming systems, is
collaborating with leading independent game developer and publisher,
Crytek, to create a more immersive gaming experience for its customers.
Crytek will integrate the Alienware AlienFX lighting control software
with its state-of-the-art CRYENGINE development solution. In addition,
Alienware also provided Crytek with Alienware systems for the
development and promotion of CRYENGINE
with full native Linux support.
AlienFX, the lighting control software exclusive on Alienware, allows
gamers to create their own custom lighting themes and special effects in
the lighting zones throughout Alienware systems. Alienware is working
with Crytek to incorporate AlienFX in CRYENGINE, the advanced
development solution for producing cutting-edge games with jaw-dropping
graphics and realism. Dvelopers will be able to create in-game events,
such as cinematic cut-scenes, animations, and special FlowGraph
scripting, exclusive to CRYENGINE. This will also enable Alienware
systems to perform special lighting effects in unison with the games,
like having the system flash red when the player's health is low, or
trigger a blue lighting cadence when swimming.
"One of the greatest things I love about being a gamer are the amazing
and exciting experiences you get every time a new, cutting edge title is
released," said Frank Azor, General Manager of Alienware. "Working with
Crytek allows us to amplify that excitement with truly immersive games
that can be played on any platform."
"Challenging gamers to take their game to the next level is what we do
at Crytek, and Alienware shares that vision with us," said Carl Jones,
Director of Business Development of Crytek. "By working with Alienware
to implement AlienFX in CRYENGINE, we are providing our customers with a
mesmerizing experience that they can't get anywhere else."
To support the growth of Linux gaming, Alienware has provided Crytek
with systems for CRYENGINE. Crytek is using Alienware X51 desktops to
serve as performance benchmark systems, and to showcase the new tools.
Alienware also provided its Alienware 14 and 17 gaming laptops for the
promotion of CRYENGINE and to demonstrate AlienFX integration.
