I want to see how the MP is, if the client and server are pretty well optimized Im going to host a server. :)

Will probably have it starting next week, they usually have the clients available prior to actually having people enter.

THQ UK has opened up a competition for people (Sorry to anyone outside of the UK, you are left out) to win keys to get into the closed MP Beta for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.

Only those with a myTHQ account (its free!!) can enter, and the first batch of keys seem to be first come first serve. The key word is "first", so there may be more keys on the way.

This has nothing to do w/ that. According to oblivion-lost.de the THQ uk beta was cancelled.

Interesting...

Now I really want in. :D

BTW, anyone else think its a little late for a beta? The game is due to be released in about a month... I guess any changes that need to be made could be used for a release-day patch though.

Well they did cancel the UK beta, for what reason I have no idea. The post I read at there forums ppl are mad big time. I wonder if the beta tanks.

I cant even download it since it needs a beta password to even do that. Hopefully they do a US beta soon.

A gamespy preview too :)

There's also the question of how the game will perform on a technical level. We tried running our preview build on high-end machine with a dual-core CPU and GeForce 8800, and would routinely take 5 minutes to load a level before unceremoniously crashing. We eventually ended up running the game at a low-res 800x600 setting on a older XPS Dell 500, getting maybe 20 frames a second and crashing every 15 minutes or so (which kept us from progressing too far into the game).

Of course, this build of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was far from final, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that these snags will be but a distant memory should it see a March release. For years, we've been waiting for first-person shooters to embrace a more open-ended approach, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is like nothing we've seen before. Check back soon, as we'll be digging deeper into the zone over the next few weeks, and maybe even figure out what those periods in the title are all about.

There is a new video here (it seems to show you the part that all the previews played) it is in german but it gives you a nice show off:
