Crysis SDK v1.2 released

Crytek Information...

With the Crysis Patch 1.2 release yesterday the world-wide gaming community received their long awaited update. Today we are happy to please the modding community with the release of the second Mod Software Development Kit for the award-winning FPS Crysis.

Mod SDK - Description
The first version of the SDK came with tools and assets the modders require to get their own creations exported into the Sandbox2 Editor which allows them to create complete new levels and modifications with outstanding content.

The Mod SDK v1.2 is the second release and includes the highly anticipated game source code of Crysis. With this code it is possible to implement your own functionalities and brand new features into the game and share it with the community.

In addition we also re-worked the installer to fix some problems and to make the whole installation process more comfortable to you. We also implemented the Softimage|XSI Mod Tool as separate zipped file that comes with example assets for you to work with.
