Yup, World In Conflict: Closed Alpha Test @ Gamespot. MP only. I'm not sure when it started but I'm in. First answer is no, it is not DX10 and it is not meant to run in Vista. You must be a member of gamespot and logged in to even see it. I've been playing since last night. Pretty fun so far.

I'm super impressed with performance so far. 2048x1536 in-game 4xaa 16af and it's a solid 30fps. It looks spectacular. The explosions are really awesome to behold, sometimes I have to stop just to watch the fireworks. I need to figure out how to drop nukes.
Edit: :D It was Spectacular.

Thats why asshats like you shouldn't be in any closed testing... people like you are the reason beta games get leaked.

Just to clarify, do you have to be a paid gamespot member to be eligible for the beta? I'm logged in and have looked everywhere for it, but no luck; unless it's already closed? :(

You are not allowed to discuss the game or its gameplay, most of the time your not allowed to even mention the beta but considering its on a big banner ontop of Gamespot its kind of hard to hide that there is a test. Its also alot different to say your in the test then lets say... posting a screenshot you asshat.

Black and white bisch.
5. Confidentiality.
A. The fact that there is a Alpha Test.
B. The fact that you are a participant in the Alpha Test.
If true your just as much of an asshat has I am, just please STFU.

And fizix, Yeah you gatta be a paid memeber.

Nice screenies. Very impressive I must say. This will probably be the best RTS of all time (IMO).

If people are reacting like this and this is only an Alpha test, I'm convinced already I'll be buying this game.

Good to hear. :D

Good game we had going their JakUp. I can't believe how good this is for an alpha, they should just put it out, gold. I haven't had a single problem yet and performance is awesome. I just can't get enough of nuking people.

LOL

If you are dropping nukes, how can you win the confrontation? NM- this is multiplayer only isn't it- as it not the SP campaign?

Any word on a release date for this game yet? And how well does it run if you crank everything to the max (including AA/AF- will dual 640MB GTS with an Opty185 and 2GB of ram be sufficient)?

I hope the gameplay is like that of Company of Heroes with a FPS feel.

Edit
This game does have elements of a FPS. Following was taken from a recent IGN hands-on article:
... World in Conflict introduces the idea of "classes" to RTS gaming. In a typical multiplayer game, combatants will have to take on a specific role guiding troops of armor, infantry, aircraft, or support. You'll have to select one of the specialties which will open up a selection of units available for use in each of those categories. Points to spend on these units accumulate automatically at different rates depending on the number of units you already have in the field. So if you've gotten all of your troops killed, you'll gain points back faster to get back in the fight whereas those who already have several units out won't be able to get help as quickly (or at all if they've got the maximum number). Squads of units are typically pretty small (around 4-8 units), but the battlefield never feels empty when there are 16 players moving around the same number of units. The pace is fast and chaotic.

Successful teams will need to make sure that they keep a combination of different unit types together on the field. This promotes some serious team play and coordination to deal with different situations. In a way, it works much like games in the FPS genre such as Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, the Battlefield series, or Team Fortress where teams want and need their members to take on various roles to be successful.

Found a low res recording of a WIC nuke in action, so wacked it up on Youtube for all your viewing pleasure's, not sure what settings its running at but it looks pretty amazing.
