Dragon Age 2 was released recently and features support for various DirectX 11 features including Contact Hardening Shadows (more realistic), DirectCompute bloom effects, high quality depth of field, tessellation for smoother terrain, prepass lighting (higher detail lighting) and HDAO for low resource, high quality ambient occlusion.

Testing was performed at 5760×1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and maximum in game settings.
