Hey guys,

I signed up for the free beta access last night, but I'm yet to get a key. Has anyone else gotten a key using this method yet:confused:

Also, should I wait a little longer to see if that pans out, or should I consider trying to buy my way into the beta? I on the fence with this game, which is the reason I'm hoping to try it for free before throwing my limited cash into it, and so I'm hesitant to pay good money just to get into a beta.

Any advice?

If you're posting this, it's because you like what you've already seen of the game. There are a lot of sites that can provide you with a beta key, just do a quick search or check the twitter feed. My cash is pretty tight too, so I understand. I snagged a pre-order on sale.

I don't feel that a beta is a good way to decide if you should buy a game or not though, as you're usually looking at rough/unfinished content. Another thing to keep in mind, is that what you see on day 1 is no indication of how good the game will be in 1-2 months. Based on player feedback, it could become something extremely good as it grows and evolves.

Doubly good, is the fact that there's no subscription fee, and the DLC are optional (even then, only 10$).

Watch for a sale if you're main concern is the money. Greenmangaming.com often puts out 20-25% off coupons that work with anything they sell.

More specifically, is there anyway I can get a PS3 beta key? Does anyone have a spare they could give me?
