First Screenshot of the upcoming DirectX 11 patch for Crysis 2
Took them long enough lol
I guess it just proves the point that they were too busy working on the console version to implement DX11 during the development cycle
Well if PC gamers offered them a reason to make a game for them. The market for PC games like this is a drop in the pool compared to the bigger console business. Looks darn good, though. I'm happy for PC gamers getting these updates. It should have been shipped with it though, not released early.
Looks pretty F**ing awesome if you ask me
'Well if PC gamers offered them a reason to make a game for them. The market for PC games like this is a drop in the pool compared to the bigger console business.' The original sold over 3 million, despite being pirated, so it's not like pc gamers don't buy their games.
@kramun and im pretty sure with that it's the last time we see aaronis at n4g.
too late crytek tooo late i got the game on PC and i cant run it on max and while it looks nice compared to other games but im still disappointed because it does not live up to the first one in terms of ((crysis graphics level)) if you know what i mean crytek is now trying to gain back some of the PC ground after they backstabbed them and went on consoles and downgraded crysis and im sure as hell not re-installing and re-updating this game any time soon so keep it to your self crytek next time launch the game with DX11
I think the reason why Crysis didnt make a full blown Crysis 2 game is because console gamers would then cry about the vast differences between PC and console. Watch what is happening with BF3. Console gamers are literally crying that a PC with superior hardware is capable of running the game better. Well question to console gamers, If PC versions of games wont look better, then why will PC gamers carry on buying Nvidia and AMD hardware? If that starts happening you wont be getting good tech for future consoles.
@3gen I know more people who pirate games for 360 than for PC nowadays. DD on PC's has seriously cut down piracy, with the prices you can get games on the likes of Steam plus the ease of obtaining games through DD, it actually make pirating seem like hard work. I mean seriously, if you get a good deal on Steam you can get fairly new games for peanuts, I got Overlord 2 the other day for £1.75 !
@ Maj0r Crytek were too busy making an entirely new game more like it - the console versions (or at least my 360 version) is completely f'd. They still haven't fixed the grain bug and even the sound is glitched - they probably don't know how. I don't want anymore Crytek games, their the worst in customer relations and clearly released an unfinished game and has yet to fix major game issues 3.5 months after release. I feel like they scammed me for 60 bucks. The reviewers are to blame too, they never warned about all the game breaking issues.
a typo i mean i CAN run it on max sorry @below stop being a dumb ass that gets happy with this this is stupid DX11 should have on disk day one this is why gaming going down the drain gamers this gen got so low standers and get sucked in and hyped so easily and only care for graphics which in this case is ironic
stop being a crybaby.
yay now crysis 2 and killzone 3 look alike (killzone still wins)... now that took them long enough ^ lol
Even without the DX11 patch, Crysis 2 on the PC looked better than KZ3. Don't kid yourself.
Dont get me wrong here, KZ3 is a gorgeous game which I love very much, but you better have been joking.
I think he's joking.
Not interested! I've already finished the game. Not going to replay it just for DX11. I'll never make another Crytek Day 1 purchase again!
Wow... Looks Really Good... I just installed some new drivers on my Card and it's working really sweet now so this is a great plus.. Can Finally Get to see Crysis2 the way it was meant to be played on a PC .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Crysis 2 CAN YOU RUN IT?
yes, and with maxed settings. but not with DX 11 T_T
with the power of fermi's we can!
Actually makes a noticeable and surprisingly big difference in visuals. Too bad it didn't launch with DX11.
it was really lame... plus the game was full of low res textures... seemed unfinished...
Like im gonna play it again just for the gfx boost....dont think so. To late Crytek!
7 gfx wh*res and counting...
you know what's a fun game? blindfold yourself and walk into traffic.
Well done, sir.
Do YOU know what's a fun game?????
I don't understand the disagrees here? Crysis 2 was an okay shooter that had none of the charm of the original. There was no real vertical gameplay to speak of, the AI was okay, it's graphics were a downgrade to the first's, it was focussed entirely on spectacle, it took away choice and replaced it with jumping really high or going invisible, its action bubbles were no longer extraordinary in a linear environment but instead were just a series of controlled encounters, and it's shooting mechanics were softened to allow console gamers to get an easier time of it. I'm not going to go through it again for a graphics update when there are mods that already make the first one outclass this. DX11 should have been on here from the get go, this is too late and it's not going to make me play through again. Crysis had something of it's own, it was crytek's little piece of territory that very few people could do as well as them. They did it in far cry, and they did it in crysis. Why did they leave that behind for a linear crysis 2? Now we live in a world where far cry 3, a corporate attempt to cash in on a popular franchise, looks like a better game than crysis 2, a game made by the original artists. Larzen can't walk into traffic because crytek decided to streamline the traffic into a single lane and unfortunately it's not actually a real lane of traffic at all... ...it's a skybox.
It should have been in the game at launch. Theres no excuse with what they did with Direct X11.
It's a shame..Really. Only a handful selected few will only enjoy this and will brag about it, while others either are stuck with crappy PC quality because they can't afford to buy a computer to run it full or they are console gamers that don't want to bother buying a good PC. Well, this is a good look at how PS4 graphics will look like.
Or it has been too long since they beat the game and got tired of the multiplayer to even remember the game.
Laissez Faire mother fucker.
let this be a lesson on how to make a PC Game for now on.Make the PC version first with all the bells and whistles then port down. BF3 = DX11 Day 1 Crysis 2 = DX11 Day 90 Crysis 2 PC and Console sales are low (1.6 million). I guarantee BF3 will surpass Crysis 2 in sales Day 1. Some nice effects but they seem minor instead of a DX11 build from the ground up. Too little Too late!
With these effects Crysis 2 is looking about as impressive as anything seen from Battlefield 3, and to add to your statement, Crysis 2 has DX11 before Battlefield 3 even if it's three months late.
Its funny but Crytek hoped to acheieve great sales by going console, looks like they will fail to cross the 3 million sale they made on PC with crysis 1.
Better late than never!
I will buy Crysis 2 on the PC. So this patch is for people like me. Loved the gameplay of Crysis 1, and love high end graphics. I was waiting for this DX11 Patch and using the spare time for the price to drop. I wanted to buy it on the upcoming Steam Summer sale, but since they pulled it, I will just get it retail. EA Origin is listing it at $80 for Australians. Whereas retail PC is around $32 online
looks stunning but i dont see why they bothered, pc gamers dont support titles as much as console owners do, the sales of crysis 2 prove that beyond doubt. still im happy for pc gamers who get this patch it should have been like that from day one
Maybe it's because of BS like the fact that there is no DX11 support and low texture resolution at launch that PC gamers decided not to support it?
First of all there are much less PC gamers then console gamers, so of course there will be less sales on pc. It's not because we go around not supporting developers. And the game sold horribly across ALL 3 platforms, not just pc.
Should of got it out sooner (day 1 really) although showing a marked improvement over the consoles (already does in Dx9) doesn't always work in your favour, see Battlefield 3.
Nothing was wrong with Battlefield 3. This "controversy" was made up by troll journalists trying to stir stuff up. I've looked everywhere and haven't found a single group of these supposed "mass complainers"
lol you guys are forgetting one thing..... CryEngine 3 isnt just a multiplatform engine, its a concurrent multiplatform development suite. they dont make something for the 360, then make it for the PS3, then make it for the PC - they make it in their development tools and it takes care of all 3 versions. it reduces textures to the size they need to be for the consoles, it reduces the lighting solution for consoles, it does everything. crysis 2, as it is today, looks incredible. this just makes it look even more so.
Too late , multiplayer still sucks.
Patch is live: http://www.techpowerup.com/...
Great, now add mod support and I'll give three shits.
Agree. No mod support is pretty much shitting on the community.
I didn't like this game but it's cool that they're getting their high res graphics so that they can show off their expensive video cards el oh el.
Crysis looks good enough on PS3 as is. I could care less.
I really miss the mid and late 1990´s days of PC gaming. Developers made PC exclusive cutting edge games. I don´t really know what happened to the industry, high end PC´s always were $4000 right from 1995. Maybe is the terrible world economic crisis... Anyway, thank very much Crytek for reminding me what PC gaming is all about: "Innovation and great graphics".
Cant wait to see the difference.
