.cry File Extension

Developer: CRYTEK
File type: CryENGINE Map File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cry. Files with the file extension .cry can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cry files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cry file?

Files in the CRY format are considered as data files used as map data by digital games created with the CryEngine software. These data files are appended with the .cry extension and are specifically known as CryENGINE map files. The CryEngine application was developed by CryTek to provide developers of Digital shooting games in the first person perspective with a set of intuitive features for creating these video games for the Microsoft Windows environment. Game level attributes which can consist of terrain details and objects like buildings among other mission data are stored in these CRY files. Users of the CryEngine software can also use this application to create custom missions or edit and add content that can improve overall user experience which can be gained from playing an existing video game stored in a CRY file. Microsoft Windows users can install the CryEngine application to implement support for opening, playing, creating and editing these CRY files. There are also some video game consoles implemented with support for running and playing these CRY video games.

how to open a .cry file?

Launch a .cry file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cry file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cry files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cry file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cry file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cry files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cry. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
