Like Angry Houses? War Thunder: Ground Forces Beta Keys

By Graham Smith on April 25th, 2014 at 2:00 pm.

Tank hard.

War Thunder: Ground Forces is rolling towards an open beta, but for now the competitive multiplayer game remains open only to those who have a key. We have keys. Would you like a key? There are 3000 keys.

War Thunder is like World of Tanks but with planes; small arenas, short matches, free-to-play, and a persistent tech tree to advance through with your hard-won XP. While the makers of World of Tanks created a whole new game to incorporate planes, War Thunder: Ground Forces puts the tanks into the same maps as the planes, so the two can interact (by shooting at each other). Read our preview of the game for more detail, or find a trailer and the first-come, first-served keys down below.

Tempted? Here are the keys, distributed through They won’t use your email address for anything other than sending you the key.

Did you get a key? Here are the instructions for how to use it. Pay special attention to the current schedule of uptime, as the beta servers aren’t yet live 24/7.

    I like how much the landscape in the screenshot resembles Oblivion.

  16. HELL_INVADER says:

    So there is no key for me… and there is an idiot selling keys, that means he got more than one…

  17. CmdrCrunchy says:

    One day no one will get the ‘Angry Houses’ reference.

    On that day the world is truly lost. Or saved, depending on your point of view.

    786559614@qq. com thx

  20. AngelTear says:

    I can’t believe people are writing their actual email addresses in the comments, in plain writing, even if it says that the keys are over…

    Enjoy the spam, I guess.

    • TWChristine says:

      That and how angry some people get (not in this article but others) that they missed out/that it should be offered first to regular visitors/etc. It’s a beta for crying out loud, it’ll be released soon enough, and free at that.

      • AngelTear says:

        Actually I wouldn’t mind if it was subscribers only (even though I didn’t even want one but they only do things for subscribers a couple of times per year at best : )

        I mean, I realize some of these are bots, because their email domains are unheard of, but, I think at least a couple of them are true >.<
        It's appalling how a beta key giveaway attracts so much internet…ness?

        • Thurgret says:

          Having picked up a key and written ‘thanks’ earlier, I now feel like a bot that forgot to share its email address.

        • The Random One says:

          I wonder if this article wasn’t shared somewhere as FREE BETA KEY GO HERE and so now we’re flooded by people who won’t read any more than that.

  25. Hunchback says:

    wow, this thread really got off-track… I cannon imagine why someone would write their mail in plane text like that.

  26. Space Marine says: – Thanks , will send beer in return

  27. Syphus says:

    Well…so much for a key. And it was my birthday too!
