And The First DirectX11 Game Is...S

DirectX11 hits alongside Windows 7 later this month, and with it will usher in a new generation of pretty, oh so pretty PC games. Yet the first game to support DirectX11 won't be a shooter.

Instead, it's Battleforge, EA's card-trading strategy game. Not the most obvious choice, we know, but then, you gotta start somewhere.

A recent patch means the game now has "a higher frame rate and new ways of creating graphical effects, such as shadows and lighting", though with no DX11 cards on the market and Vista support not yet enabled, good luck trying to make that actually mean anything.
