    Crytek today delivered on its promise to the PC gaming community by giving Crysis 2 a potent dose of updates that enables jaw-dropping new graphics and eye-candy on capable PCs equipped with DirectX 11 graphics cards. The updates consist of a primary patch, version 1.9, that lets you install the DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade (free DLC), and the optional High Resolution Texture Pack (another free DLC).

    The DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade brings with it redone maps, objects and models that are enhanced with Tessellation and displacement mapping, that greatly increases geometric detail. Next, is a suite of new lighting effects that DirectX 10 and 11 introduced, including higher quality HDR motion blur, and DirectX 11 depth of field with Bokeh shapes. To install the DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade, your Crysis 2 installation must be patched to version 1.9, and the PC must have a DirectX 11 compatible graphics card.

    *install patch 1.9 first

    It doesn't stop there. The High Resolution Texture pack adds to the eye-candy with highly-detailed textures for pretty much all objects and surfaces, which complements objects with geometric detail enhanced with tessellation. To install this patch, you need a graphics card with at least 768 MB of video memory (in case of dual-GPU cards, each GPU system must have at least 768 MB), and you need 64-bit Windows 7 or Vista.

    yeah - i stopped playing months ago. i will give it a try for sure, but just how it all went
    down is still pretty disappointing.

    though, they did get it out - i wasn't even sure that would happen. so i can't be TOO disappointed.

    TPU download server is misreporting the file sizes. We're fixing it. The file sizes you end up downloading (from our servers), are 137 MB (patch), 550 MB (dx11 upgrade pack), and 1.65 GB (hi-res texture pack).

    Checked my G19 afterburner display and it's using 1501MB of memory. Leaves me 35 MB spare then... But it's running smooth :)

    Crysis 2 was removed from Steam due to a violation of the Steam agreement (most likely on purpose). It is not an Origin only game. Sorry Easy.

    No, you can patch right over your existing Crysis 2 installation.

    So no DX10 support?. I personally have a DX11 card, but a friend of mine with an HD 4870x2 will be wanting to know how much his card is supported here. Can any of you DX10[.1] goers give it a try?
