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.

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

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*.)

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).

Anaron - are you saying that you don't have $400USD?

It would cost you no more than that to upgrade to an i5, apropos RAM (8 GB), supporting motherboard, *and* an AMD HD7770 from Newegg.

CPU - Intel i5-3330 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819116781
RAM - Patriot Viper DDR3-1600 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820220685
Motherboard - MSI Z77A-G41 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130653
GPU - MSI R7770 AMD HF7770 GHz Edition - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127687

Try that parts list on for size.

(The motherboard and GPU are from my own build shortlist - as I refuse to recommend what I wouldn't normally use myself. I went to the Egg because I have no idea if you have a MicroCenter or ewquivalent nearby.)

AMD Bulldozer FX4150? My 970 BE is much better than that.

No, that's not what I'm saying. It's a mix of waiting for new hardware (e.g. Radeon HD 8K series) and spending my money on things that I need now (like new glasses and a new smartphone). Plus, I'd rather buy a new computer because I want to pass down my current one to my younger brother. It's fine for playing games like Dota 2, League of Legends and Team Fortress 2. The parts you listed are very tempting. I'm sure I can get them at a similar price somewhere in Canada.

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:

Far Cry 3 is quite impressive. It's one of the best-looking games out right now. Crysis 3 looks impressive too. Judging by the screenshots, it's safe to say that it looks much better than the original Crysis. As for Crysis 3 and Steam, I highly doubt it would happen.

Vegetation looks actually like... vegetation. Unlike most (if not all) others, where it's green crap all over the place.

And they said that's alpha footage or was that alpha gameplay in the video demo? I'll be getting a new video card at some point next year to cap off my new psu, ram and ssd upgrades. I'm still rocking the same mobo and Core i7 920 though.

A 7770 now, and to run Crysis 3, is a terrible suggestion.

The rest, sure, fine, but the bottom end to run Farcry 3 on high is the 7870 / GTX 660 level, we can assume Crysis will be in that ballpark.

Crysis 3 Enlists Albert Hughes To Enumerate Its Seven Wonders

Posted Image
Albert Hughes, co-director of Menace II Society and From Hell, is taking on the Crysis universe in a new series of live-action short films based on Crysis 3.

The shorts are centered around what's new to Crysis: Enemies, weapons, enviroments, and so on. Each short will focus on a specific aspect, explaining what makes them tick and how they fit into the larger story as our nano-suited hero takes on the Cell Corporation in a ruined New York City.

They're also promised to be action-heavy, demonstrating the gameplay as well as various points of the game.
