    Looks like it'll be here next/this week. The page is already there, you just cant download it yet (even if you're a member).

    The official site has a post up concerning the public beta. There will be 60,000 slots with Fileplanet members getting first dibs.

    I'm sure they'll open it up after 24 hours if it doesn't fill. Either that or just join for a month and cancel later. Personally I like being able to download files without having to wait in some stupid queue. It really is worth the $6 month.

    EDIT: looks like they pulled the page offline.

    as soon as I see it going live I'll post.

    You can just download them at filefront with great speeds for free.

    Nevertheless, I cannot wait for this game.

    If those idiots in charge had half of a brain, they would let everyone who preordered in. I never preorder, but I would if I could get into a beta. Fuck paying money to Fileplanet to get into a beta.

    My guess is that it is the same engine as Doom 3 / Quake 4, same specs apply...John Carmack is pretty good at keeping overhead down when he tweaks an existing graphics engine...I'd expect you might need a lil' more horsepower since this one has real vehicles in it.

    Can't wait for the new engine...looks pretty good from what I saw from Steve Jobs keynote speech.

    if you can tun battlefield you should be able to run this.

    Carmack is good about getting his engines to scale to even lower end systems.

    I thought I had an account, but guess I lost it.
    So what am I suppose to do, just keep refreshing the page until it shows up?

    Its fucked up, a lot of people have been having that issue.

    clear your cache by doing the Alt + F5 bit.

    If that doesn't work try a different browser.

    It stinks. Too much retarded artillery spam, a few stupidly overpowered weapons (a drone that kills 1-3 people (if theyre close together) instantly? And it works from long range? WTF?), and idiot players. I might try again when it goes retail and people wise up, and they fix some of the insane spam issues.

    the engine is running of the quake 4 engine, but they totally overhauled it for the game, its basically a new engine. My friends and I are going to be getting a quake wars server when it comes out. If you want to hop on check the ip at theshortbusriders.org when the games released to hop on with us.
