UPDATE: The keys have been sent out for now. If we're able to provide a list of the guilds we'll do so tomorrow.
Guilds, this beta key giveaway is for you! We've received beta keys from Funcom and will be giving them out to 20 guilds in total, with each guild getting their hands on 15 beta keys to give out to their members, at their discretion.
The keys can then be used to enter the Closed Beta of Age of Conan, where you'll have access to the entire game with no level cap and can contribute to the final phase of bug-finding and feature testing prior to launch. Age of Conan may have gone gold already, but that doesn't mean the testing stops here! MMOs continue on even after release, so any data you can help Funcom compile will be infinitely useful for the future of the game.
Great, so how do I sign up?
Signing up for the giveaway is easy; simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Guild Beta Entry: <your guild name>" along with the following information in the body of the email, to be eligible for consideration:
- What are your guild's goals in Hyboria? Are you looking to get down and dirty in the siege warfare, or do you want to raid? Maybe you're a crafting guild or want to do PvP mini-games -- tell us!
- Your guild's name.
- Your guild's website URL.
- The size of your guild.
- Previous games your guild has played (if applicable).
- Contact email where we can send the keys if your guild is chosen.
- Age of Conan is still under NDA. As such, you must agree to the NDA prior to downloading the game and playing it, and agree that you will not disclose the beta process or Age of Conan publicly until Funcom and Eidos give consent by releasing the NDA.
- Only the guild leader, or a guild officer may submit an entry.
- Duplicate entries will be deleted.
- The person entering the guild into the giveaway will be notified upon completion date of giveaway with all information on how to enter the beta.
We'll begin giving out the beta keys on Saturday, April 26th, 2008 -- just in time for some weekend fun in Hyboria -- so get your submissions in fast!
