EA and Crytek have released the long-awaited Crysis single-player demo for PC gamers ahead of the game's release on 16th November.

The 1.7GB demo consists of one level and a level editor, and works with DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 graphics card, which is good news if you - like me - bought a new PC a while ago and still struggle to find new and screen-shattering things to make it cry.

Anyway, you can find a list of download mirrors on Voodoo Extreme, and users of NVIDIA's funky brand of graphicsability should be aware that they will need a new beta driver in order to make it go.

Interestingly, it looks like Crytek ended up in a bit of a rush to get things out the door, too, since Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that they left some fairly spoilerific material (and some new screenshots) in one of the bundled files. Worth looking into if you don't expect to play the full game but do want to pretend you did, or something.
