Eye candy: the Crysis 2 DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011 | Posted by Jim Thacker

YouTube Preview Image

Crytek has released a video showing how much nicer Crysis 2 looks with the improved hardware tesselation, parallax occlusion mapping, interactive water simulation, and all the other good things provided by its new DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade.

The free update also provides improved local reflections and contact shadows for DirectX 9 Luddites (even if the video does provide side-by-side comparisons with the DX11 gameplay, which just rubs salt in the wound).

Additional tech porn is provided by the ‘making of’ PDF, which can be downloaded from the Crysis 2 site.
