inCrysis has word that participants in the Crysis beta test must reenlist in order to continue to take part through the game's retail launch in just over two weeks:
We are happy to announce that the currently running Crysis Multiplayer Beta will officially end on November 15, 2007 just one day before the game is available in the stores.

The beta just had capture the flag but the more points u get gives u access to vehicles & alien tech which makes things interesting. Then there's the suit which mix's it up.

I find the multiplayer game to be somewhat boring. Taking points is all too easy and the game area is spread out too much. A better map could definitely help but I don't feel like the game communicates what is going on to the player very well.

The voice that constantly tells you what point is under attack/being taken is maddening, I just tune him out and stop listening.

I'd like to see defensive positions give bonus's to a players armor so that using the turrets isn't suicide, some type of radar when you have control of a point would be helpful too.

In general just more information for the player to use in locating the enemy. And you should be able to get air dropped or sky dive into the island.

Watch Code Monkeys. It's really f-n good.

Its WAAAY better than far cry's..by FAR. The beta just had capture the flag but the more points u get gives u access to vehicles & alien tech which makes things interesting. Then there's the suit which mix's it up. Add the beautiful locations and its a lot of fun hav'nt done much 'team play' it adds a bit of spice over vanilla CTF (not a whole lot) but dont even compare to FAR CRY's that was abysmal..

Oh yea, did I mention the NUKES? stunning..

I highly doubt Crysis multiplayer will be popular. I predict same kind of multiplayer popularity as Far Cry had...which is low.

Ditto. Been playin the hell outta the demo but yeah, it sounds like they're needing to tweak some more of the multiplayer.

Nothing about Crysis feel's rushed, its the most gorgeous game on any platform and fun. Maybe your just pissed you missed out on the beta? I've been playing it for weeks and still not bored of that same old map..

I just think they are letting people continue to play for free until the game is released.

I thought it was only idiots like MS that did this sort of shite. How can it be beta if it's already gone gold!!

MS played this card with Vista and look what a mess that was/is.

To MS Alpha=Beta, Release Candidate=Beta, Release=PoS ( Piece of Shite )

Alpha=Internal Testing Release - almost feature complete.
Beta=Testing Release - feature complete.
Release Candidate=Large Scale Testing Release - very few known bugs left.
Gold=No known bugs - image ready to burn to media

Sure bugs still exist and sure some are known (but considered trivial and can be fixed in 1st patch.)
Sounds to me like they rushed the release of Crysis to met an imposed deadline.

Now I just wish they'd fix the bazooka. You can shoot someone point blank with it and you'll survive; an explosion such as that would surely have killed the shooter too.

Hump doesn't know what he's talking about, there's been no update to the beta, they did some tuning server side but the client is still at Release 3.

Check the official beta forums, there is no update.

actually there was an update several days ago. I haven't had the time to play recently but if they can get it running as smoothly as the SP demo then it'll be pretty damn cool.

Has the beta been updated? I played it like three weeks ago. It was choppy, but kind of fun. I haven't touched it since then. Were there any updates for the client?
