Earlier this week we confirmed that Crytek would be releasing an update for Crysis 2 which will add DirectX 11 support, now we can also confirm that an update will soon launch for Total War: Shogun 2 which will add DX11 support to the title, this news comes roughly a month after the game’s release date.

A recent post on the Total War forums says that substantial fixes are coming in the week and months ahead, patch 2 should arrive in early May and will add DirectX 11 compatibility, this allows compliant PCs to feature enhanced shadowing and hardware tessellation, also we have heard that it will bring anti-aliasing support.

The statement posted on the forum suggest that the game’s makers are aware of ongoing issue raised by the community and the developers seem keen to smooth out lots of multiplayer problems, however there was no mention of issues being resolved for the game’s single-player elements.

As we hear more about the changes this patch will bring we will keep you posted, the good news is that visuals should be better (for DX11 compliant rigs) and the multiplayer elements should be improved, what other changes would you like to see?
