Well, would you look at that. After hearing Epic Games has plans to roll out a $19.99-per-month subscription plan for Unreal Engine 4, we've know learned Crytek has announced a similar approach for its own CryEngine. But unlike UE4, independent developers won't need to pay a five percent royalty on revenues, and the monthly charge is $9.90/€9.90 per user.

This service starts in May and won't take away from the free CryEngine software development kit which will continue under its current terms. That said, access to the latest features -- "Physically Based Shading, Geometry Cache and Image Based Lighting" -- will require a subscription.

It's nice to see companies fighting for indies like this.
