It seems our hopes have been dashed. In a response on the official MyCrysis forums, Crytek team member “Cry-Tom” remarks that “no patch was ever confirmed” for DX11. He further states “I have no idea why this website even posted such information,” referring to the German report.
DX11 Crysis 2 holdouts can rejoice: EA and Crytek are rolling out a patch that adds support for the renderer sometime today, according to a PCGamer.de report.
Interestingly, it’s also said to include an “advanced settings” menu, allowing players to tweak individual graphics options to their desire. Currently, only presets are available, which has stirred up a fair amount of criticism among the more vocal of PC enthusiasts.
There’s no word on what sort of DX11-specific visual treats we can expect, though we imagine tessellation is a given.
