I've been playing Crysis 3 MP Alpha, and it's a blast! I can't wait to play single player.

"There! Mark of no-life! If that gets you, you're phouchged."

- Sykes, about Crysis 3

"Dirty screen" overlays and excessive sun glare seems to have been lifted from Frostbite, though. Or it's becoming a trend now, like water splat pixel shaders.

I noticed Black Ops 2 now has grime on the lens and a few more lens flares .

At least it makes sense in Crysis 3 (because of the nanosuit's helmet). It's definitely a trend though. Frostbite 2 had it first, then CryENGINE 3 and Unreal Engine 4.

"Maximum requirements!"

Oh well, they seem to have gotten back on the horse... I'll just run to the store for a GTX 680 or two. I'll be right back :whistle:

Far Cry 3 has raised the graphical bar, so I'm really interested to see what Crysis 3 will be like. The gameplay videos are pretty impressive but the levels look very linear and quite constrained. Oh, and I really hope it's released on Steam.

Far Cry 3 in-game:

I commend developers for dropping DX9 support in their games but Crysis 3 is an exception. I really wish they added DX10 support from the get-go in CryENGINE 3. If the minimum requirement is DX11, then I won't be able to play it with my good ol' Radeon HD 4870. :(

CryEngine3 isn't DX11 only, since Crysis 2 is not even DX11 capable at all and it uses CryENGINE3.

Also I wonder if my newish Geforce GTX660 will be enough to play this at Max.

CryENGINE 3 isn't DX11-only but DX9 isn't listed in the minimum requirements for Crysis 3. Also, the alpha test for Crysis 3 doesn't support DX9. I don't know when the beta will start but if it doesn't support DX9 too then it most likely won't be in the final release.

Well ok. I'm only saying before now it wasn't DX11 only.

say what? did you somehow miss this free patch?

Not to mention this isn't about the engine, this is about Crysis 3, which certainly looks to be DX11 only.

An upgrade was looong due. I just got a better reason. :p

Oh yea I forgot about that patch. Also, it was Anaron who brought up the engine bits, I was just correcting it.

If any game should have dropped DX9 support it had to be a new Crysis game. And seriously, it's long overdue, DX9 has to go already. Looks like I'll have to upgrade my HD5770 though but I was planning on doing this already.

I think you misunderstood me. I've known for a long time that CryENGINE 3 supports DX11 as well as DX9. When I said DX11-only, I was specifically referring to Crysis 3.

However, only the PC can take advantage of that support - consoles cannot (yet).

The sheer breadth of PC hardware that supports DX11, though (in terms of GPUs alone) runs the gamut from the pricey to the ubiquitous.

(The floor of DX11 includes HD4000 (Intel) and HD5xxx (AMD), and those are designed into CPUs (Intel) and motherboard chipsets (AMD) respectively - hence *ubiquitous*.)

My graphics card is already overheating, just thinking about it.

I can afford to buy a new video card but I can't afford to buy a new computer. It'd be pointless to upgrade my Radeon HD 4870 when I'm still using an Intel Core2Duo E6750 and a motherboard that doesn't support DDR3 RAM.

Other games that dropped support for DX9 can run on DX10 hardware (e.g. Black Ops 2, Battlefield 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted). According to the Steam Hardware & Software Survey, 32% of Steam users have DX10 systems. It's not as big as the 53% that have DX11 systems but it's still big enough to warrant attention. I know that Crysis 3 won't be released on Steam but the survey is a good indication of the hardware that PC gamers use.

Anyway, it's unlikely that Crytek will add DX10 support to Crysis 3 so the only real hope that's left is for them to leave DX9 support in (since CryENGINE 3 supports it).
