Have graphical improvements been made to Crysis 3 when compared to the previous game?

Did the CryEngine 3 receive a facelift? Or is it essentially Crysis 2 with identical graphics/gameplay, and a sequel story?

textures did recieve a facelift because they were too blant in crysis 2......
otherwise the guns and enemies are as beautiful as crysis2.......

the open world setting is a feast to the eyes.....
seems a little bit more appealing than crysis2...(but not much more)
(tbh crysis 2 was awesome tooooo)

there have been a lot of tweaks made to the engine since crysis 2 which also runs on cryengine 3. crysis 2 would max out on a 680 crysis 3 will supposedly make a 680 cry when maxed out... they have enabled a host of features that were previously disabled dut even so the game will be playable on most systems down to a 6800gt.
up to a gtx 690 in sli. if you wanna know how it works on your system try the beta.

Supposedly it requires a DX11 card to even launch.

There has been a lot improved since Crysis 2 graphically. The light rendering appears far more natural in Crysis 3.

The skin shaders are totally off the's a screen:

It's a shockingly gorgeous game.

That said, I also didn't really care for it. Crysis and Warhead are the only games in the series where I truly enjoyed the gameplay. ;)
