Shogun 2 DX11 Patch coming this May

By on April 17, 2011

Creative Assembly announced that the much-anticipated DX11 patch for Shogun 2 will arrive this May. This patch was originally scheduled for release within two to four weeks after the game’s launch. However, that was clearly an over-ambitious statement and not a realistic one. This patch will also add in anti-aliasing support, as well as a number of multiplayer fixes and modifications.

“You’ll appreciate that all this takes a lot of time and testing, and while we’re working as hard as we can, we may not quite make the two to four week post-launch window that we’d originally hoped to hit,” wrote community manager Craig Laycock at game’s official forum and continued. “We’re aiming to get patch 2 to you in the first week of May though, so not long to wait now. Thanks for your ongoing patience, and please bear with us!”

The DX11 patch will offer to those with DX11-capable cards access to features such as hardware tessellation and enhanced shadowing.
