I really don't see the point why they wouldn't do this.

Go Crytek !

Their CE3 Devkit needs to end up in the same pricing range as UDK if they are going to have any success
in crushing Epic's Unreal Engine 3. It's gonna be a tough battle but i think Crytek will win it unless they do
something stupid with the license.

From my point of view, the reputation of Crytek has fallen by one unit with Crysis 2. If this piece of news is true, than it will rise with two units.

Wow, if they really do release it for free, given my familiarity with CE2 already, I would totally put together a team and either make an Indie CE3 Stargate game, or remake FF7 in CE3 :)

This really makes me respect Crytek a lot more.

If you just need to sign up, that'd be best. Provide a bit of info, so Crytek knows who's downloading.
Cant imagine anything else really working to great effect. :)

Looking forward to it :D
