Crysis 2 v1.9 DX11 Patch and High-Res Texture Pack

It’s here! Oh, lawd, it’s here. Now is the time to turn Crysis 2 into the game it should have been when it was released back in the spring. Take it in order. First, you have the v1.9 patch. which is where you need to start. Then, take the DirectX 11 “Ultra Upgrade” patch, which adds DX11 support and all the cool things that come with that, like new water and shadow effects and motion blur, among other things I don’t understand. Finally, if you want to go all the way with this, you’ll need the high-res texture pack. And when you finish downloading all 2gb of content, you’ll be ready to party. You don’t even know how much this is gonna improve your life.

Loving it. Crytek REALLY is why I put in so many hours learning/training to master all 3d applications.

@Andrew, yes well done… master ALL 3d applications (not possible) and then you’ll be old enough to die unemployed. FOOL!

When the f^%#@^&^(k are you dirty B%a&s@t!a&t#a@r*d^s going to release a finished product! screw you for making your paying customers dupes of your beta testing! I HOPE THE TERRORISTS FLY A FULLY FUELED 747 INTO YOUR HEADQUARTERS [sans innocent passengers of course ] That would be a fitting end for the degenerate money grubbing pieces of excrement that find ripping kids off a normal way of life. screw you and all your descendents for at least three generations! HAVE A NICE DAY!

Jeez Jon Wright calm down buddy. If you feel ripped off in buying a game, the next time round download a… err… “demo” first to see if its worth it. If not, wait 6 months and buy it from the bargain bin for 1/5th the price.

Plus there are much much worse offenders more deserving of a terrorist act than Crytek… ever played an Egosoft or STALKER game ?…
