    Call of Duty: World at War Beta!

    They opened up the PC beta for everyone. All you have to do is go to Callofduty.com, and register. They will give you a Beta Key. Download the beta, and enjoy!
    Call of Duty, World at War

    And I'm downloading from gamerhell, they always seem to be fastest.

    IDK Nunya. I think the lack of SM 3.0 may not allow for it.
    But I really don't know.

    I played Call of Duty 4 with my x800pro so unless they drastically changed the engine I don't see why not.

    ah, god damn it, I go to register activate the account & then try clicking the links to access the info on the beta & what not & it just sits there & times out... seriously I wish these companies could do one of two things either make DAMN sure their sites & servers can handle the expected traffic & upgrade them as necessary for these supposed beta releases & what not, when they know damn well their going to get hit with a crap load of traffic... or don't even bother with it, & let other sites like Fileplanet & Gamershell & others deal with the beta key & download stuff altogether... but even with that said, Fileplanet is just about as bad...

    anyways, will just have to wait till later & hope they don't decide to close the beta key option thing down in mean time, as these things are usually for a limited time...

    Anybody play this yet?
    Really cool game. Lots of gore.
    But game play seems a lot like COD:4. I like the little extras they put in. Dogs barking, the guys actually talking to you.
    Good times!

    Game play like CoD:4...as if it's a bad thing

    Downloading now....my x1950pro is going to be pushed as well, Dodds.

    However, I did max out CoD:4 at 1024x768 and get consistently smooth frames so hopefully I can do the same for this.

    Played for about 20 mins or so and shut it off. It's alright, but definitely much more taxing. On some levels I was barely pulling 30fps at the same settings as I ran CoD:4 and was getting 45-50fps. But the thing is, the game doesn't look any better, in fact I'd say it might look on the worse side in comparison. However, it is only a beta so I'll hold off on my final opinion.

    It definitely does feel like a mod of CoD:4 though...seems more like it should have been released as an expansion pack not a whole new game

    How long did you have to wait for the key? Do you have to do anything besides just making an account?

    I had to wait a day for my key, but I was getting it the day they opened up the beta. I know their servers were getting slammed.
    I know mervteck got his key in like 2 mins.

    And I agree, the game is more taxing. I was playing on a dual 8800gt setup(non sli) , and I was barely pulling 40 FPS in some maps. Others, I was hitting 60 FPS. (v-sync on)

    I still think it's a fun game though.

    Make an account, verify it by e-mail and then the key was shown automatically. All in all it took 3 minutes at most.

    It works. Though I have to say that I am thoroughly unimpressed with the game. It's just a mod of cod 4. The gameplay is near identical. Graphics aren't much better except for the body parts which are kind of cool. Wouldn't pay for this one though (maybe $20 as an add-on).

    just shop the clearance end caps at your nearest Target or something in a few months after the game is released, can almost guarantee it'll probably be sitting there for anywhere from $5 to $15...

    usually thats how I pick up several of my games in the last couple years.

    Exactly my thoughts. They shouldn't even be charging people for this if they already bought cod 4.
