Crytek Community Manager Tom Ebsworth has announced that Crysis 3 will ship with DirectX 11 support.
Ebsworth recently tweeted to his followers, “Looks like it’s official, Crysis 3 will be shipping with DX11 support!” For those who may not remember, Crysis 2 did not originally include DirectX 11 support at launch but was added via an update later in the year. This, of course, greatly improved the visuals of Crysis 2 on the PC. You can check out the trailer showing off some of the fancy updates below.
As for consoles, Crytek founder Cevat Yerli stated, “Crysis 3 will push the 360 [and] PS3 to its limits, ahead of Crysis 2, but Crysis 3 PC will be clearly ahead!”
Crytek did an outstanding job with a console port of the original Crysis last year, proving that the CryEngine 3, their flagship game engine, has what it takes to make consoles, as well as PC, shine.
