Crysis 2 to launch with DX9 only, DX11 to be included in a patch - Maximum Fail

Crysis 2 to launch with DX9 only, DX11 to be included in a patch - Maximum Fail

| Gaming News | Posted: Mar 2, 2011 4:03 am

Crytek and EA launched the Crysis 2 multiplayer demo yesterday and after playing it, I found myself quite under-enthused. It was okay graphically, but there are only a few drop down menus for graphics, no way near the customizability of the first. There's barely any destruction (which was a big feature of the first game) and no sound through my USB-powered Logitech G35's.

 

 

Motion blur is too annoying in the sequel, and it is only DirectX 9. News is leaking that the full game will ship with DirectX 9 only and DirectX 11 support will be added later through a patch. This is a very big blow as CEO Cevat Yerli has put his name on the line saying this will still be a huge hit on the PC and they have spent considerable time on PC making sure PC fans are not disappointed.

 

If this news is true, yet again, PC gamers are kicked in the balls. DirectX 9 on one of the biggest titles of the year, in 2011? It's not 2007 anymore, Crytek.
