Crysis multiplayer update: No physics on DX9 servers, Team Action removed

Crytek would like to take the time and give you a global update on the multiplayer part of Crysis:

"As for the DX9 version we won't have physics and day and night cycle in-game. That means you won't be able to shoot down trees and/or alter any other objects than vehicles on the map. [...]

Rather than providing the community partially working features we limit this for the DX10 version only. Due to the strong hardware available with DX10, server load is less and performance is increased. [...]

Gamers with a DX10 card are able to play on DX9 servers, but with the limitation of the respective server. Vice versa it is not possible for gamers with DX9 cards to play on DX10 servers due to the limited features."

That's fing stupid, I'm really pissed of as I have NO plans to update a £900 Self built PC to Vista, Bye Bye Crysis, consider my pre-order canceled.

experience CRYSIS with full dx10 features, you've gotta have the RIGht RIG to run it...

And so starts the mandatory push towards DX10. Ugh...

don't tell me DX10 is useless. glad that Crysis will be the first game to really make use of it pushing PC forward from consoles.

"Due to the strong hardware available with DX10, server load is less and performance is increased. This ensures the pure physics and day and night cycle experience without any limitation."

If you want to play Crysis with all the features enabled, you're going to need to buy Windows Vista (because Microsoft have paid us to tell you that). Otherwise we're just going to disable some features and claim you need DX10...
