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.
