First Crysis Patch Arriving Within Two Weeks

In an interview with Crysis (PC) fansite inCrysis, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli revealed the first patch for its recently released visually intense shooter Crysis would be coming within 14 days.

"We are collecting up all the user feedback now and planning patches that will address as much as possible as fast as possible," Yerli told inCrysis. "The first patch will be out in 7-14 days."

Nvidia VP Roy Taylor also added some promising information on the updates concerning performance issues due to the game's steep system requirements. "Performance will improve, almost with every single driver drop and patch of the game," Taylor wrote. "Literally every day and week we keep working on the drivers we can see improvements."

    Does anyone else hear their dvd drive thrashing with the crysis disk? It happens on startup and when I start the game. I'm guessing it's some copy protection or something.

      You mean the SecuROM disc check when playing singleplayer? If so, yes they all do that. Here's irony though:
      Disc check is there to prevent piracy yet disc check is like the first thing they get rid of when they release a game. The only people stuck with having to keep the disc in the drive are the legit owners. Makes me wonder why, ten years after games started coming on discs, some companies still bother including a disc check.

        Even as a legit owner of all my games... I used to run the No-CD cracks on all of them so when I went to a LAN party I didn't have to worry about hauling all my discs or leaving them somewhere, people ganking them. Its why I like steam...its just there. Start it up and go.

        yeah but with no disc check you can just borrow your original cd to your friends and everyone installs on their computers and dont have to worry anymore.

      Yeah, I thought my disc drive was broken. I get an error when I use it on one drive, then on the other drive my disc takes WAY too much time to read it. It's a great game, it's just surrounded by so much unnecessary shit and riddled with bugs that I don't think it's a finished game. It'll take a few weeks for the patch to come out and I'm not sure of the status of the no-cd crack (that will certainly save me a lot of time). Damn, I'm talkative today.
