Crysis 2 DirectX 11 video shows off graphical upgrades

focalbox As promised, Crysis 2's "Ultra Upgrade" is available today. But before you can start enabling all the new graphical effects on your high-end PC, you'll need to patch your game to version 1.9. Thankfully, you can grab that right here. Once that's done, you'll want to do grab the High-Res Texture Pack, and the Ultra Pack, of course.

The "Ultra Upgrade" offers gamers the ability to replay Crysis 2 with a number of enhanced visual effects including tessellation, water rendering improvements, high quality HDR motion blur, and more. There's also an optional high-res texture pack you can install, if you so wish. But, maybe you need to see if the upgrade is worth it before downloading the gigs and gigs of updates? Don't worry, Crytek has released a video highlighting many of the visual treats awaiting high-end PC gamers:

The Crysis 2 "Ultra Upgrade" isn't the only bonus PC gamers are going to get this week. Additionally, the Map Editor Pack will be available to download starting Wednesday. And like today's releases, it will be available for free.
