Looks awesome. Great to see the new tech in action. Really does wonders for texture work.

Ive got it installed and have played a few hours, the difference is staggering!

thumbs up to the engineers.

POM and DX11 everywhere, all the cracks in the street are POM/Tessellated the hdr and tne mapping seems to have inproved the overall look of the game

or maybe its the contact shadows.

I was using maldos texture mod and was very nice.

I installed this patch with the 2 goodie patches and its running in full ultra 1080 p with a min of 45 max 60 fps.

A lot of people are having issues especially sli and ati cards among some. There are also a stickie about the nvidia card issues and they are being fixed by nvidia.

People are saying that their is more blurryness and lack dof with postprocessing on ultra. Extreme does work fine I can confirm.

Another known bug is related to leaving firefox open while playing it can tax the vram of your card and a crash will occur.

I have had the game game crash a couple times but other than that it having fun checking out all the eyecandy.

There is onespot on the rooftops where water is leaking from a water tank and boy its crazy to see how life like its especially with the tessalation.

Have fun.

Finally. Should've shipped with the game, really...

Sillyace922248d ago

If you wanted the game to be delayed until now then yeah it should've shipped with it then. /sarcasm

Bay2248d ago

I don't think it would've taken them this long to add tessellation to the game. And actually, I wouldn't mind if it was delayed till now either...would've at least gave me a better first impression.

Baka-akaB2248d ago

why would it be delayed for that in the first place ?

I'm not drinking the koolaid from crytek so far , and believe that the only reason dx11 support took so long , is because they insisted on dx9 one in the first place

Kamikaze1352248d ago

I agree. If it actually shipped with the game, it would not have taken this long. Because rather than focus on DLC and patches for the game after release, they could have been focusing on this.

The story is dublicate and was reported as dublicate almost immediately, yet you approved it? Be fair at least people.

junk3d2248d ago

To be fair, i believe the title was much more specific which is why it got approved faster. I didn't realize it afterwards...

john22248d ago (Edited 2248d ago )

When you see a dublicate report, you should read the story and there is a reason why it was reported. It was reported when it had 3/10 approvals so there isn't ANY excuse at all

Veni Vidi Vici2248d ago

WTF is a dublicate? You mean duplicate? School is good. Seriously.

Tachyon_Nova2248d ago

To say "You mean Duplicate?" is bad english, you should have said "Do you mean Duplicate?"

It's called typing in prose. You know...vernacular. It was intentional. If I were typing a report, I would be sure to type in a formal style. This place is anything but formal.
