DirectX 11 Crysis 2 "Very Very Soon"

This trailer on German site PC Games Hardware shows NVIDIA at Computex demonstrating the promised DirectX 11 patch for Crysis 2, which is said to be coming to Crytek's first-person shooter sequel "very very soon." Of course there's no better way to show off high-fidelity graphics than by using a handheld camera shooting a monitor from the back of the room, so that is how this clip was shot. The narration is in English, though, so we get to hear a description of the DirectX 11 effects.

Presumably the 'DirectX 11 effects' are improved motion blur, a wider FOV, better lighting and sharper anti-aliasing...

All of which has already been enabled in DX9 via Wasdie's Crysis 2 AGO application.

This game is as boring and generic as it gets.

Poorly implemented stealth + poorly implemented combat. Woooo.

I loved Crysis 2. I think it was a fantastic game and I'd love to replay it in DX11 ^^

Speak for yourself ofc, but I'm still enjoying it immensely. Finished the single player 3 times and working my way through my 4th atm. Used a different approach to each area with every playthrough and it all worked brilliantly.

As for post no.1, might want to - you know - watch the video before you post, he clearly states what new dx11 only features are coming, including tessellation etc.

Ditto. Was 10x better than the first.

However, gonna have to wait for a new system/vid card before I hit up Dx11.

I enjoyed Cryis 2 as well even though there were some invisible walls and some consolitis elements in it. But I used Wasdi's utility:

This utility reduced a lot of the consolitis problems.

I actually thought Crysis 1 was better. Not that I disliked Crysis 2 but the first one just had a different feel to it that I prefer. Crysis 2 has too much of a linear console-y feel.

I will say I have seen the DX11 version of Crysis 2 and it's quite awesome and will be worth the wait. It's way more than the "dx10 effects" from the original.

10x better than "pretty but boring" is "prettier but still boring".

Crysis 2 wasnt boring in the least. One of the best (if not the best FPS) to be released in the last 5 years.

I actually thought Crysis 1 was better.

If it wasn't for the flying sperm shooting icicles, I would have enjoyed the game much more.

Warhead was better than the first game...had to suffer fewer of the sperm enemies.

I was surprised at how good this game was. I think Crytek made a good decision to way on DX11 implementation. They understand that it's just a marketing trick that Microsoft used to push people to their new OSes. I'm glad someone was smart enough, and had big enough balls, to stand up to them over it. A lot of other devs have caved.

I'm not sure I understand this...I feel like Crytek has long been the cheerleader for MS's new DX versions. I recall them making crysis disable features under DX9 so that DX10 versions would look better. Then people would manually enable these things so the DX9 version looked as best as it could. (and it was really close to DX10)

They did this again on crysis 2 right? The DX9 version has a bunch of stuff turned off deliberately that makes no sense if you just want the gamer to have the best experience possible. Shouldn't you just work at making the game as good as possible on any hardware?

If consumers still called an 800 number for service and running certain effects on dx9 caused more errors I could understand but troubleshooting is basically handeled by the community now via message boards. (and some knowledge base content)

I'd just like to see them open up the CryEngine3 like Epic did with the UDK.

Since all of you fucktards say you hate COD. Let me point out that COD does multiplayer correctly and does a damn good job of it.

Let me add that most you you COD haters, hate COD becuase people like me OWN YOUR ASSES when you log onto the server.

You clearly have impeccable taste...I mean the CoD games have stellar single-player experiences...right? Am I right? /sarcasm

Do people like to bitch just for the sake of bitching in an attempt to be different, when deep down inside they know they really liked it?

To each their own, of course, but I thought Crysis 2 was fun with beautifully designed levels - especially the post alien destruction level designs, which were 'very' well done! The replay-ability is good too, as there are different approaches to levels/situations that can/will change the game play and outcome each time.

All in all it was a great game, but I will say that it was too consolized and spoon fed the player 'a little' too much with the 'Tactical Options Available', etc. Since it is a console port, everything was released at the same time with DX9, with the forthcoming DX11 for PC. So, I do look forward to playing through it again once the DX11 is released.
