Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will support DirectX 11

It's official. DICE's upcoming shooter, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will offer DirectX 11 graphics when it debuts this March. Up to this point DICE had considered their DX11 codepath for Bad Company 2 "experimental", but apparently ATI's been working with them and they're now at the point where they can officially offer DX11 graphics when the game debuts early next year.

Originally DICE had showed in a powerpoint slide that Directx11 would be reserved for Frostbite 2.0.

Big thanks to ATI for moving the industry forward. Looks like I have my reason to upgrade.

Does everyone know what this means?????
Well one word pretty much sums it up: MONUMENTAL

IW's engine will look like it was made for GameCube.

just when IW insulted pc gaming, DICE saves it.

great job ATI, this game is going to be great, but with dx11 compatability it will be insane.

Another reason why Battlefield:BC2 will be better than MW2.

Trizelda4270d ago

DICE is really showing the love to PC gamers.

Pandamobile4270d ago

I was reading through a lot of the DICE developers' Twitter pages and most of them REALLY favour working with PC. Especially that Repi guy. Gordon Van Dyke too.

Damn DICE is on a roll.

Nice one.

Lets hope they roll a six because IW rolled a four.

We love you !!!
BF2 came out 2005 and 2009 you again updated game.

Perjoss4270d ago

thats impressive, for some reason i thought of DICE as a company to churn them out and not bother with updates, I was obviously wrong, more companies need to support their games a bit more.

peeps4270d ago
