This patch fixes a number of gameplay issues and bugs based on player feedback.
Enhance your copy of Crysis 2 with the DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade. A three-part release, the Ultra Upgrade introduces tessellation to Crytek’s first-person shooter and upgrades a whole host of graphical effects.
If your copy of Crysis 2 works through EA Download, EA Origin, Steam, or another digital distribution service with uniquely protected game executables do not download the file labelled Patch 1.9 as your copy will have to receive the patch through their services. You are free to download the DirectX 11 update and high resolution packs, however, as they work with all versions of the game – just ensure you’re patched to version 1.9 before installing them.
This pack has three files: the Patch 1.9, DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade and High Resolution Texture Pack.
Below are the patch notes for Patch 1.9, this is also the patch that will enable DX11 Support (available via a separate download).
DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade
The DX11 Ultra Upgrade is a free visual improvement add-on introducing DirectX 11 support as well as a wealth of graphical improvements and performance optimization for both DX11 and DX9 API's.
When using the new “Ultra” spec, DX9 platforms will benefit from real-time local reflections and contact shadows. The owners of DX11 platforms, in addition, will be able to enjoy hardware tessellation (requires the installation of the “DX11 Ultra Upgrade”), parallax occlusion mapping and several improvements for shadows, water, particles, depth of field and motion blur.
High Resolution Texture Pack
This package provides higher texture resolution for a wide variety of assets. It supports both the DirectX 11 and DirectX 9 versions of Crysis 2. A 64-bit operating system and a graphics card with at least 768 MB of memory are required.
