WildStar [official site] is going free-to-play, breaking loose from the shackles of a subscription model in order to let new players through the front doors for nothing. Before that happens, NCSoft are running a closed beta for the new version of the game, and we've got 5000 keys to giveaway if you want to try it out. Hop below to find out how to get one.
Update: Please note that all codes are EU specific and so will not work from other regions. Apologies for the inconvenience; we weren't initially told.
The widget below will dispense your key in exchange for one of four actions: following us on Twitter, following our Steam group, subscribing to our YouTube channel, or visiting our Facebook page. The latter should work without requiring a Facebook account and whether or not you've already Liked the page previously.
Once you've completed one of the above actions, hit 'Continue' in order to make the key appear. The keys are limited to one per user and the widget above will close automatically when all the codes are gone. The keys won't expire, except when the beta ends.
How to redeem your code
First, you'll need to download the WildStar Closed Beta client. Then while that downloads, if you don't already have one, you need to set up a free NCSoft account. Click here to create the account, then click the link in the email it sends you in order to verify your address.
Now you're ready to redeem the code.
1. Log into your WildStar/NCSoft account.
2. Click on "Apply a Code" in the blue banner near the top of the page, or on the "Apply a Code" button on the right side of the page
3. Paste in the code you received via the widget above.
4. Click 'Apply'.
If you receive a success message, you're good to go. If not, double-check the serial key is entered correctly.
