Crysis 2 is About to Look a Whole Lot Better

If you can handle it, that is.

When first released earlier this year, Crysis 2 disappointed many hardcore PC gamers, who had hoped the game would, like the first Crysis, be something that could really make an expensive rig sing.

Instead, it shipped so pared back there were Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, and the PC edition didn't even support DirectX 10, let alone the more contemporary DirectX 11.

All that changes next week, when developers Crytek release a big patch for the game that brings full DirectX 11 support, along with new shadow effects, motion blur effects, improved water effects and a new high resolution texture pack.

If your PC can handle all that, the patch will go live next Monday, June 27.
