Crysis 2 DX 11 Tessellation and Hi Res Texture Packs Planned

A Direct X 11 Download Package Page on the MyCrysis has been uncovered, which will support the promised DirectX 11 update for Crysis 2, Crytek's shooter sequel, which is not yet available. This page was not officially unveiled, is not linked from the website yet, and contains links that do not yet work (though it does offer a gallery of DirectX 11 comparison screenshots for Crysis 2). The page looks like it will offer two optional downloads: A DX11 Tessellation Pack with pre-tessellated geometries they say are "necessary in order to be able to enjoy hardware tessellation on DirectX 11 graphics cards," and a Hi Res Textures pack that will support both the DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 editions of the game for users with 64-bit OSes and 1 GB graphics cards. Presumably this is an indication that the DirectX 11 patch will be released soon. Thanks Grifter.

Are you a suit? If they intended on to release this for the PC market they should of developed it properly, as they did for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Why should the PC be the red headed step child?

FFS No I'm not - and it's the red headed step child because they sell a lot more copies to kids on consoles rather than people with a pc which can actually run DX11.
