I posted about this in another thread. So rock on Monday! DX11 and High res Texture packs. plus Patch 1.9 needs to be installed before adding DX11 patch, also coming Monday.
I actually read all the words in the Changelog....I think I need a sit down now and a nice cup of tea and a sausage roll.
I can't understand why this wasn't in the original release. Not like I'll play it anyway, not on Steam.
Most reported when the game was released the Alien AI was ...somewhat lame.
Has anything been done since release to rectify this?
will I notice a huge difference? Probably not ..
14.99 on amazon now... Think I'll buy it!
Does this mean any kind of improvement for DX10 cards?
seriously why do people ask ' why wasn't it in the original release?'
Are you dumb or just plain stupid?
The game was in development before DX11 was released, geez.
Seriously? Do you think developers only get access to new DX versions the moment the public do?
Many games have finished before DX11 came out, and they still managed to get the features in there in patches before now. Crytek had plenty of time to get DX11 in before release, but they didn't care about the PC release so focused on finishing it and shipping it first.
And while the graphics do look better, I can't help but feel that everything bar tesselation is only going to make C2 look more like C1, rather than actually blow us away.
Is that a yes or no? Some games will use as many DX10 feature that a DX10 card can support if you load up the DX11 exe, others say you don't have compatible hardware.
Would have thought that as the original crysis was DX10, it should be in there somewhere.
So Crysis 2 is city one and not the second Crysis but the 4th one.....1st=Crysis, 2nd=Crysis Warhead, 3rd=Crysis Wars and 4th=Crysis 2, right?
Should a PC gamer even bother getting the city one? Does it look as good as the first one even?
Warhead is more like Crysis 1.5
Deders is correct, Crysis Wars was just Multiplayer, so Crysis 2 is just that, Crysis 2.
Essentially there will be a DX9 and DX11 version of the game. There are improvements to both versions with this patch, so with a DX9/10 card you get real time local reflections and provided you have a 64 bit OS you also get high res textures. So, the game gets improved visuals for you but in answer to your question there does not appear to be a DX10 version so you won't get DX10 specific improvements
So we probably won't be able to load the DX11 exe on DX10 hardware, like you can with some games. Shame
Exactly, I'd fully expect a bigshot dev like Crytek to have access to the SDK before we ever see it.
That's what it looks like, simply finishing it and releasing for console was priority, since they knew PC gamers would just eat it up anyway, DX11 or not.
Either way I think the totally failed on this one, and what breaks my heart is despite the poor reviews (for PC anyway) the sales don't reflect it. They sold out, caught consolitis and activated maximum profit, so you can bet Crysis 3 will be the same story.
It's a good game, not great maybe, but good and lots of fun
The graphics were amazing on release, specifically some of the effects.
Despite a community that is abusive and generally illiterate (just check their forums) they have supported the game with numerous patches and now bring us a real treat.
Crysis 2 on release was guilty of nothing more than failing to push the graphical bar as far as the original game (which had its flaws). You would think they had taken a dump through peoples letter boxes the amount of vitriol it has generated.
