Crysis 2 beta on the way, community site sign-ups get early access

Excited about Crysis 2 but can't wait until the game arrives later this year? You could probably don a Nano Muscle Suit and spend the summer looking like a psychotic person -- or you could go over to the MyCrysis community page and sign up for an account, granting you a chance at early access to the beta. "What beta?" you say? Yep, turns out that Crytek is working on giving fans early access to its upcoming sequel.

Details are slim right now, with Crytek only saying that "early registrations" to the soon-to-be relaunched community site "will be tracked, and our first wave of users will have a chance to win a key as and when the Crysis 2 beta takes place." Presumably that's just PC users for now, but we've reached out to Crytek for clarification all the same. The relaunch has yet to take place, but is promised to be "coming soon" according to the game's Facebook page. And hey, that personal Nano Muscle Suit might come in handy for hitting refresh in your browser window really, really fast.
