    The 1UP article is short and sweet, so I'll quote it in full, after the jump. Essentially, Steam activation codes have gone out to invited beta testers. This is a private beta, so testers cannot discuss their experiences with the public unfortunately and it all goes live on October 5. Specs seem quite reasonable too, so the game should play quite smoothly on midrange hardware. This looks like a cool game worth waiting for, so check out the video.

    There are a lot of fresh elements but at the same time quite a few things borrowed from TF2...I guess we'll have to wait and see :)

    Wikipedia seems to think it uses the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine which is quite old(and prone to bugs and hacks). Some other games with that engine incude:

    It is strictly an online game from the sounds of it so I'm sure they worked on the security aspects of it a lot.

    I like the look of the outrageous-looking avatars in it. I'll bet we could get a thriving TPU club going based around this game. :D

    But the top 5 games at least in that list kicked ass and lets face it Condemned is like Desert Island on steroids. So maybe there is a chance i will like this one. All so FEAR 1 was better than all the rest.

    I don't understand that at all? :confused:

    I had to upload the picture with a different filename, because it clashed with one from a different article, causing the picture funny you saw.
