Cevat Yerli (CEO of Crytek) has confirmed that there will be an open beta as well as both a singleplayer and multiplayer demo to be released. They report a total of 20,000 beta keys to be given away. The date seems to be set at sometime just before the start of Q3 (so sometime in June). The report also includes that people interested will have to apply for a key.

Here's a true translation of the pcgames.de article for you all...

Cevat Yerli, CEO of the Crysis-makers Crytek, told our colleagues of PC Games Hardware some interesting informations about the download that thousands of players are waiting for. According to him there will be an open beta test prior to the release, which anyone can apply for. Who applies first will get them, in total there will be 20,000 beta keys.

Around the release date there will be two demos. One Singleplayer and one Multiplayer demo. We are anxious to know if the Delta difficulty level will be available. In this difficulty level only a few bullets will be deadly and there will be no HUD.
Release Date: November 16th, 2007

The beta should be coming out sometime in August or September, so keep an eye out and keep checking the various Crysis sites if you are interested. A multiplayer and a singleplayer demo are expected to be released about 1 to 2 weeks prior to the official release date.

Information wrote:

[*] Crysis will run on both DX9 & DX10 as well as Windows XP and Windows Vista.
[*] A graphics card that supports Shader Model 2 or higher is required.
[*] CryEngine2 is estimated to scale back 2 years, and scale ahead 1.5 years.
[*] A single 7800GTX will run the game quite well on fairly high settings according to Crysis Art Director, Michael Khaimzon.
[*] Jack Mamais of Crytek said in an exclusive Crysis-Online interview that his X1900XT runs the game very well at reasonably high settings ( still unoptmized ).
[*] Crysis will dynamically utilize all processing threads available. Meaning quad-core processors will be supported.
Comparison (DX9 vs. DX10)


I hope this is helpful and a good heads-up for you guys. I'll enjoy playing with you on the beta/demo as well.

I've been waiting to hear this news for a long time.

Edit: I also have the recommended requirements.

Edit 2: I also have an 8800GTX and Vista. So I'll be playing this game on DX10.

Whoo!  I meet the recommended specs.

I need Vista for DX10.  But I don't want that 10% performance hit...

Graphics looked good but the gameplay looked retarded in that vid. Going to check some of the others but if the gameplay continues to look poor....

I thought the gameplay looked great. Well, pretty great, anyways, to tell the truth, the way the people who make those vids play, everything looks shitty.....if any of that^^ made any sense to you.

Some of the multilayer gameplay I've seen looked ridiculous, however, I WILL have one of those beta keys damnit.

Was it multiplayer? And by ridiculous, do you mean 'really easy targets'?

The keys should be out sometime by the end of this month, or early July. I'm not sure about where to get the keys, but you can probably check the official Crysis website, Gamespot, crysis-online, etc.
