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.
