I've seen a few things hinting at the beta starting soon (possibly today?), but I haven't seen it officially anywhere.

The first news post at VE3d today says:
P.S. - I think the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. multiplayer beta starts today. Well, the sign-ups at least.
http://ve3d.ign.com/

And there are some interesting things listed at Fileplanet, but since its just a download site they don't have any articles to go with them... so there isnt any detailed information on the beta.

As far as I know, that was canceled.

The one on file planet is different.

There was a download page for it last week (it needed a key) but I can't seem to find it now.

I found an excellent hands on video of the game too:

At about 4:15 into the vid they start talking about stalker. Its not in english but they caption it. They really have some insightful things to say about it and they give a lot of information as well as some great footage.

Yup, I've had my eye on fileplanet all day. I don't have any additional info but all signs point to very very soon. If it's today I expect to later in the day if not very early tomorrow or very late tomorrow.

Yeah, thats usually how it goes.

... yet another reason for me to dislike working night shift.:argh:

Well I guess yesterday wasnt beta day.

For what its worth, even though Fileplanet took the beta download link off of the main page, I dug around a bit and found it:
http://www.fileplanet.com/173507/170000/fileinfo/S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:-Shadow-of-Chernobyl-Beta-Client

Unless they release a newer version of the beta than the one in that download, that will probably be where we'll sign up.

Wasn't this supposed to come out in March? If so, it seems kind of late to start beta testing it now.:confused:

It's the multiplayer not the single player.

I guess I need to go read up on this more. I would have assumed that they'd release at the same time.

It's not much to look at when nothing is on screen but the map... I gave it a shot, ran pretty dam smooth at max settings but then again there wasn't much going on. The world looks pretty dam good, texture work is great.

I will get a server up for us once I get a working key. BTW I don't think this leaked version is the final fileplanet one... it crashed on me when you pick new game (its MP only so why have the option).
