Total War Shogun 2
has been promoted as a game that would take advantage of DirectX 11
graphical features. That will still be the case for the latest historical RTS game from The Creative Assembly
. Unfortunately, according to a Eurogamer news story, the DirectX 11 support won't be ready when the game is released on March 15.
According to a rep from the developer, "We just wanted a couple more weeks to tweak the performance on various difference cards." The DirectX 11 support will be added to Total War Shogun 2
in a patch that should be released two to four weeks after the full game is released. Even without the DirectX 11 features, the Creative Assembly rep states, "The game still looks absolutely stunning at top end. There are no resolution restrictions. It looks fabulous. It'll be absolutely playable. All of the features are in there."
