When Crysis 2 launched with only DirectX 9 support, some PC gamers thought DirectX 11 implementation for the critically-acclaimed shooter would never see the light of day. Crytek squashed those rumors today and officially announced a forthcoming DX11 patch.

Via mycrisis.com, the German developer stated, "We would like to announce that there will be a DX11 patch released for Crysis 2. We are working to get the best out of DX11, so we’ll wait to announce the features until a little closer to release."

While specific graphical enhancements haven't been revealed, according to DX11-developer Microsoft, "DirectX 11 includes numerous improvements. It's designed to be more efficient, leverage the power of today's multi-core processors, and provide support for sophisticated shading and texturing techniques such as tessellation. The result: smoother 3-D animation, and graphics more lifelike and nuanced than ever before."

Keep in mind that these are the general allowances of DX11. GeForce.com will keep you up to date when the official features are announced.
