Exclamation Far Cry Closed Beta!!!

Quote:
I'm happy to announce that there will be a closed beta for Far Cry multiplayer. Sign-ups will take place next week. As soon as the sign-up page is live, we will post the link here on the official forums. The beta will focus on bug testing and balancing.

Any groups with special interest in joining the beta (mod developers, fan site webmasters, etc.), contact farcrybeta@ubisoft.com stating the special interests.

Note: This will be a closed beta so there are only a limited number of people that will be admitted.

That's great news, it means the game is at least 50% done!
Videos so far look sweet.

What UDawg said is right... there's no point in having perfect graphics and whatnot if the gameplay sucks.

There should be a balance between the two. I think one of the best games I've ever played is Splinter Cell. In my opinion it has both good graphics and nice gameplay.... only wish it had more to it than the storyline.

Back to the point... From the clips I've seen and the screenies, it LOOKS awesome... as for the gampley per se, we'll have to wait and see!

The AI looks good from the AI demo videos they released. I just hope the game plays well.

Meh, I've learned to avoid betas from my beta experiance. I've been in quite a few, but only one of them didn't ruin the full version of the game for me.

I already signed for the beta, hope I will be accept.

I am surprised about Far Cry's minimum requirement: 1.7Ghz CPU, 512Mb RAM, Geforce 4 Ti, Geforce FX and higher, broadband connection etc. I think recommend requirement will need 1Gb RAM and Optimal requirement will need huge 1.5Gb RAM. Of course all games in 2004 will need 512Mb RAM as minimum and 1.5Gb RAM as Optimal.
