More details have arrived for Crytek's upcoming title 'Crysis 3.' Per reports, Crytek's CEO Cevat Yerli has confirmed that the upcoming 'Crysis 3' will only support DirectX 11.

The details regarding the game were confirmed in an interview with Gametrailers, where Yerli stated that he wanted PC gamers to move towards the sequel in the same way they approached the first 'Crysis.' This move makes sense as the first 'Crysis' came with a similar rule that it could only be playable on DirectX 10, with the application programming interface (API) only available on Windows Vista, which mean that any gamer who wanted to play the then graphically rewarding game, would need to upgrade to Vista.

Now with the new setup for 'Crysis 3,' fans will need to keep in mind that any cards that are geared towards DirectX 9 and 10 won't be able to run the game, and even if it does, there could be a few lags that can be experienced while playing it, and that's not something that any gamer would want.

Now the seriousness of the issue here, per a Gamingbolt report, is that DirectX 11 "offers tessellation, more advanced shading, reflections quality, improved ambient occlusion and tons of other features that he claims will melt PCs and set the new graphical standard for PC."

"However, when the title is also being developed for consoles, which don't support DirectX 11, then it won't be built from the ground-up for PC hence failing to take any real advantage of the latest API. We'll see in good time how Crysis 3 for PC compares to it's console kin but Crytek has certainly rubbed gamers the wrong way once again," notes the report.

Said to be accidentally revealed by Electronic Arts, the game is set to be the third main installment of the 'Crysis' series, and a sequel to 2011's 'Crysis 2,' and will run on the CryEngine 3 game engine.

The new game will see players take on the role of Prophet as he returns to New York, only to discover that the city has been encased in a giant Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation.

'Crysis 3' is scheduled for a Feb. 2013 release date for Xbox 360, PC. and PlayStation 3.
