Crysis Demo Publicly Available Later Today

Anyone who has been unsuccessful in getting the Crysis demo using FilePlanet should be glad to hear that the demo will be publicly available to everyone in just over 12 hours (12 hours and 47 minutes as I write this). An in-official site which is counting down to the launch can be found here, although the servers will probably struggle to cope with demand at first given that Crysis is one of the most anticipated games so far this year, so it may be worth waiting for a few external sites to start hosting the demo. Anyone who has already ordered Crysis via EA should be able to download the demo already via EA's downloader.

Update: Unfortunately EA has decided to delay the public release by an extra day, so it's now going to be released tomorrow. Sorry for the disappointment, from a quick look it seems the delay could be linked to issues with the 24 hour exclusive for customers purchasing Crysis via the EA Store.Source: Crysis Demo

Think it's two GB or so... which means unless your server can cope with 100GB+ in one the space of a few hours you'll have some problems.

lol Ben it would kill a normal server with the amount of people wanting to download this, the next few days is gonna be hell as Crysis gets jacked from every foothold on the net, something is gonna happen with Crysis in the next few days that EA is going to regret. and i see more delays. just wait and see

Meh. my server can probably handle it. Expect it tomorrow though, I doubt I'll be able to download 2GB with the demand it'll be under... I'll let my rig run all night though. Than I just need to let it upload at a slow 50kpbs. Unless W1zzard would like to use my server as an official TPU mirror?

your better off getting your version of it first, could be a lot of hassle getting it aswell, the countdown timer has gone nuts too, it doesnt have a clue when downloads commence!!

Yeah, I'll dl my version tonight. I'm just saying, it'll be a pain in the ass uploading it, because I can only upload at 50kpbs, and my connection likes to drop. HOWEVER... I can do a torrent release.

And then a hero emerges who releases it via torrent to TPU. And me... also, I have the demo, I think. 1GB. Maybe fake. Want me to release it? I don't know... it's not like my rig can run Crysis.

OK. Gimme a while to set up my firewall to let it through with no hiccups.

I CANNOT BE HELF RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. I HAVE NOT RAN IT (come on, it's not like I can play with my rig). USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Making torrent and firewall exceptions now. Then router needs configurating. I'll release it when that's done.

W1zzard, if you read this, may I use the TPU tracker, if it works? Make it exclusive...

I'm getting it on torrent DNA, that means you can upload. Just as soon as you download it from me, because I have what I think is the demo. Obviously, I can't say, I havn't ran it (System Specs)

Now transferring it to this rig. I stored it on a spare HDD in a rig down my mates, I did'nt have enough HDD space at that time. Anyway, expect it as soon as the file is fully here. Knowing my luck, I'll be able to release it just before the official release.

No problem. I'm going offline for a while, to see if the transfer will speed up.
