    The Alpha was release. The faked 'alpha' test was a marketing ploy for a short online demo. There might be some updates from now to then but nothing substantial.

    Were this a real alpha, it should have been much more primitive.

    I wonder if this will strain my desktop enough to justify a 3rd 6950 :( kind of upset I never got the chance to play the alpha on my desktop just my laptop :/

    6950's are so dirt cheap I feel like I might just end up with a quad-fire 6950 setup as my do all/end all until 9xxx/8xx series. Everything in my system can handle quad-fire 6950's size included so why spend money on new cards when its possible to just use 4 old ones :laugh:

    Not always. Ive played more then a few closed Alphas that were pretty polished. Not saying this about that Crysis Alpha mind you. Just saying in general.

    If I still had my Athlon64 4400+ and my GT240 magically did DX11 I would be on top of this so hard.

    Crysis 2 was a failure. I base this on the fact that it did nothing to improve the series, that wasn't countered by two changes that retarded its growth.

    Crysis 3 looks to be a step in the right direction. How far, I cannot say. I can only say Crysis is never going to earn a preorder. Anyone who forgets Crysis 2, in fonder memory of Crysis 1, forgets the lessons of the past.


    I don't know why Crysis 3 is getting this much positivity. Hopefully it's warranted.

    That just don't make sence to me. Why would they suggest a 2600k(4C/8T) over the 2500k(4C/4T) when for AMD, they suggest a FX4150(4C/4T)

    I always find these specs misleading in so much as many of us here overclock our cpu's and gpu's so theoretically many with the mid ranged hardware will be matching the high end requirements as I can only assume that the specs are reference.

    Ohh and I have a "freebie" for this game :) well will have to be accurate

    Wish they'd just hire MaLDoHD so I don't have to wait until Crysis 4 to see 3 with highres textures.

    Good lord, now I really need to find a 2nd 480. Can't believe 680 level games are already out.

    Yup :laugh: Just wish during the alpha testing SLi would have worked a single card (with a hefty overclock) played med/high settings fine at 1680X1050 (nv surround wont work without SLi)

    You're gonna be vRAM limited; I wouldn't go for a third card due to driver issues, heat and so on. Just sell them and buy a shinny new toy if you want to spend some money. :)

    That is exactly what they did! No doubt about that. It's called marketing.

    The tech trailer looks amazing, that's all I know. I loved the first crysis, maybe this one can be almost as good.

    I guess my 3 x 7970's will be fine with my 3770K or 3930K?
