Unreal Engine isn't the only tool offering indie devs cheap monthly access. Following this morning's announcement, Crytek has also revealed that it will be offering a monthly subscription option for their CryEngine.
Beginning in May, indie developers will be able to access the full version of CryEngine for a monthly subscription fee of $9.90 per user. According to Crytek, it will be "royalty free," making it significantly cheaper than Epic's offering.
"We are really excited to make CryEngine available to hundreds of thousands of developers working with Crytek to make awesome games,” Crytek's Carl Jones said in the announcement.
CryEngine's free SDK will continue to be available for non-commercial development. However, developers wanting to take advantage of the newest features of CryEngine will need to subscribe. For a look at what the free SDK offers now, check out this new video from GDC:
