The Crysis 2 DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade for science-fiction shooter Crysis 2 has been revealed.

A post on, since removed but captured by user BeeDog on NeoGAF, revealed what the free upgrade will bring to PC gamers.

To enjoy the fancy DirectX 11-fuelled visuals you'll of course need a DirectX 11 graphics card.

The DX11 Ultra Upgrade also adds visual improvement and performance optimisation to the DX9 version of the game.
