Yesterday we gave an overview of some of the DirectX 11 features (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/06/22/crysis-2-directx-11-update-and-screenshot/) we can expect to see in Crysis 2 in the next update. The patch will add advanced ‚??parallax occlusion mapping,‚?? and improvements for shadows, water, particles, depth of field and motion blur.

There will also be additional DirectX 11 compatible tessellation and high-res texture packs, which can be downloaded separately to improve world geometry and surface detail throughout the game. The Crysis forums (http://www.mycrysis.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=32220) bring word that we can expect all of these updates to hit next week, and a report on Shacknews (http://www.shacknews.com/article/69010/crysis-2-directx-11-ultra) suggests Monday June 27.

To get an idea of what the new features will look like, check out these side-by-side comparison shots (http://www.pcgamer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9827), found by forum member Vivec. You‚??ll find the full 1.9 patch notes below.

I am looking at screenshots and i don't think DX10/11 are worth a **** over DX9 for sake of some quality improvements over performance. I don't even see difference except for close up view of textures.

Tessellation looks good. I haven't seen fullsized screenshots yet, so I can't comment on textures.
