As of today, PC gamers can download the DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade and high-resolution textures for Crysis 2, which Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli believes to be "a sneak peak of how PC gaming will evolve in the future."

Crytek recommends having a quad core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a DirectX 11-compatible card with 1.5GB of video memory for those planning on running Crysis 2 with the new textures and DX 11 functionality. It's worth noting that the high-res textures are also compatible with DX 9 cards as well.

In related freebie news, the map editor pack is due out this week. Look for it on Wednesday.
