CRYENGINE 5.7 Long Term Support Update Highlights:

It also supports ActionScript 3.0, which enables the use of Adobe Animate. ​ 

 Scaleform Schematyc The Scaleform Schematyc plugin emulates functions that Flow Graph provides for the UI system. UI elements are available as components, while functions and events corresponding to these elements can be defined in an Element XML file. It supports both Scaleform 3 and 4. 

 GamePlatform Plugin The GamePlatform plugin is an update to the plugin that shipped with CRYENGINE 5.6. Expanded features include support for Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox. The update also includes an optional new plugin that provides visual scripting nodes for Flow Graph and Schematyc 

 Visual Studio 2017 - 2022 Support Engine code and CMake has been updated to support Visual Studio versions 2017, 2019, and 2022. Along with this upgrade, support for the C++17 standard implementation has been added.
