…interesting site is also by following this link…

Here is a list of all the 64-bit games that come either with x64 built-in support or with additional patches for 64-bit. As you can see the list is still very small, just because there are still not much x64 games availabe!

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl
Developer: GSC Game World

There is still no information on when to expect the game to be finished and available.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is expected to leverage the strengths of AMD64 technology to provide an immersive gaming experience with a larger playable world, more detailed surroundings, better AI, and more people per map.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl brings the foreboding post-nuclear disaster zone to life in the year 2012. As a mercenary, the player will venture into the exclusion zone in order to acquire information, technology and artefacts to sell on the black market, but ultimately will have to uncover the what secrets are hidden by the Shadow Of Chernobyl.

Dreadnought
Developer: Torc Interactive

The Instinct Engine (powering the game) is set for market release at GDC 2006 in San Jose, there is still no date announced for the game release!

A tech Demo is aviable for download here (requires free registration)

The AMD64 64-bit enhanced mode of the Dreadnought demo takes advantage of the performance benefits of 64-bit by greatly extending the richness of the game content and effects, including:
– uncompressed normal maps allowing for higher texture quality and greater detail
– significantly higher number of particle effects (e.g. more flames, more steam, more smoke, etc.)
– persistent decals (e.g. bullet holes stay on walls and don’t fade away over time as in 32-bit)
– post-processing effects (e.g. screen glows)
– more pixel shader instructions (the adrenaline vision mode is built upon and replaces the base lighting shader to produce the effect)

!!! Note that the 64-bit patches for Codename: Panzers (Phase one) and Fahrenheit (a.k.a. Indigo Prophecy) seem to be released to slove issues of the games running under Windows x64 Edition, not to make the game use the additional features of the 64-bit OS/CPU combination.
