With Crysis 3 on the way, even if we know almost nothing about it, we can at least guess it'll feature improved visuals from the second game in the series.
Especially since developers Crytek just announced a range of upgrades to their proprietary engine, including "revamped DirectX 11 tessellation, advanced character rendering options" and an "improved AI system".
What does that mean? Pretty things can now look a little prettier. As you can see in the video above.
