This will allow developers to use CryEngine and its associated development tools for a flat monthly fee. This all kicks off in May, starting with the first tier of $9.90 per month, which gives developers access to the engine, without a royalty fee attached to sold games. There's not much more known on this at the moment, but Crytek will unveil more details on the service in the coming we eks.
