Crysis 2 DirectX 11 support and advanced graphics setting PC update coming tomorrow

A german website is reporting that a patch for the PC version of Crysis 2 will be released tomorrow (Monday) which will enable DirectX 11 support for the game aswell as bring an additional graphics setting menu known as “Advanced Graphics menu” to the game.

This news has been, apparently, confirmed by Crytek themselves, according to the website’s sources.

Crysis 2 released for PC a few days ago, however, much to the dismay of gamers worldwide, the game only supported DirectX 9 at launch, with Crytek promising that DirectX 11 support would be implemented in the game via a future patch.  This was heavily frowned upon by fans of the series, especially because Crytek advertised the game as coming with DirectX 11 support for PC.

This is good news for gamers as they’ll finally be able to test out their mean gaming rigs against Crytek’s latest graphical beast, with both DirectX 11 support and additional “advanced” graphics options promised to be made available via a patch tomorrow.

EA or Crytek hasn’t either issued a official press release regarding this news, however this German website is known to be accurate when it comes to reporting news such as this.

We’ll keep our readers updated when we get a response from EA on whether this patch will be released tomorrow or not.

Crysis 2 is out now for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
