EA and Crytek have released the Crysis 2 ‘Ultra Upgrade’, giving PC gamers full DirectX 11 support. The ‘Ultra Upgrade’ is said to deliver higher quality visuals and features including tessellation, water rendering improvements, high quality HDR motion blur, and many other special effects and higher quality texture formats with the optional high res texture pack.
Or as they’re calling it: “The DX11 Ultra Upgrade”. It’s apparently weighing in at over 2GB, but is a “free visual improvement add-on introducing DirectX 11 support as well as a wealth of graphical improvements and performance optimization for both DX11 and DX9 API’s.”
Also announced was that PC users can download the game’s Map Editor Pack free-of-charge on Wednesday from MyCrysis.
Starting today at 9am (PST) [4pm GMT] and running until 12am (PST) on Monday 30 May, you will earn double XP in Crysis 2 across all three platforms.
There will also be some prizes for the best XP earners on each platform.
