Watch Bioshock’s Opening Scene Recreated Using CryEngine 3

Remakes remakes remakes. When they’re done right we just can’t get enough of them.

Courtesy of 3D artist Game time, Bioshock’s opening scene has been wonderfully recreated using CryEngine 3; giving Bioshock an eerily realistic feel. The textures and lighting are well done and make you kind of wish you could get your hands on a CryEngine version of the game. It almost makes the game feel darker and grittier in a way.

While it is the most recent this isn’t the first time the game has been linked to CryEngine 3. Scott Homer, former Crytek senior artist, did an homage linking the two a few years back.

Here are the two versions, Game time’s remake and the original, below so you can compare at your leisure. If you’re interested in seeing screens or more of Game time’s work you can do so here and here respectively.
