Crysis 2 Ultra Upgrade Available For PC

Players of Crysis 2 on PC have a big treat awaiting them. Electronic Arts and Crytek today announced the Crysis 2 Ultra Upgrade, giving PC gamers full DirectX 11 support and beautifully enhancing the overall look of the game.

The free upgrade delivers higher quality visuals and features including tessellation, water rendering improvements, high quality HDR motion blur, and many other special effect and higher quality texture formats with the optional high res texture pack.

PC gamers can grab the upgrade via auto installation once they go online with Crysis 2 or they can download it from Crysis’ website. A second free upgrade – the long-awaited Map Editor Pack -- will be available on Wednesday. With this add-on you’ll be able to design your own maps and create your own epic battlegrounds. The Map Editor Pack can be downloaded from MyCrysis.com starting Wednesday.

Crysis 2 catapults you directly into a stunning recreation of New York City in 2023. With the city on the brink of annihilation from a terrifying alien threat, your only hope of salvation lies in the powers of the Nanosuit 2. Be fast, be strong, be invisible and save humanity.

If you don’t have Crysis 2, get it from Origin and take your own life in your hands. Only you stand between humanity and extinction – will you fight, or die with the rest?
