Crysis 2 gets day one PC patch

Plus, no DirectX 11 support yet.

The PC version of FPS sequel Crysis 2 is only a day old in the US and it has already been patched up.

The update, detailed on the game's official forum, makes a number of tweaks, adding cheat detection, removing the auto-aim option wholesale and speeding up text chat. Here's a full list of fixes:

  • Server Browser shows incorrect pings - Fixed
  • Some matches never initiate - Fixed
  • Faster text chat - As speedy as can be
  • Console re-enabled - Console has been re-activated
  • Cheat detection - Now in place to ensure all users are on a level playing field
  • Fix USB headset issues – Current issues have been addressed and fixed
  • Fix hologram icon staying on screen after being used - Fixed
  • Remove Auto Aim - This has now been completely removed due to overwhelming community feedback

The patch will automatically download when you boot the game up.

Big Download has also noted that at present the game does not, as originally promised, support DirectX 11 visuals, leaving high spec PC owners slumming it with DirectX 9.

The Crytek-developed shooter storms European shores on Friday, with PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 directly in its sights.

"Story aside, Crysis 2 is a hell of a video game about shooting stuff," wrote Eurogamer's Simon Parkin during his 8/10 appraisal. "It's challenging, facilitates and then demands the use of tactics, and is more generous in scale than almost any other first-person shooter of the past few years."
