It was the night before Crysis 2’s launch, and all through Crytek, not a creature was stirring – not even a fry… tech. But then, in the midst of laying down for the extended cryogenic sleep that traditionally follows Crytek’s development crunches, one developer bolted upright. “Everyone,” he turned and said to the others, nestled in their infernal healing contraptions, “I feel like something’s missing.” Then his eyes bloodshot eyes went wide with horror. “We… we forgot the graphics.” And so it was that Crysis 2 shipped with no DirectX 11 support and only a few preset graphics options. In time, however, Crytek sent PC gamers an apology basket filled with magical pixels, and all was (mostly) well. And happily, with Crysis 3, the developer plans to include more graphics than ever before.
