# 1 Open Beta Key Availability
01-14-2010, 05:47 PM
Hi everyone!

We're aware that some people have been having difficulties finding an Open Beta Key so they can join us in the Star Trek Online Open Beta. Simply put, our partners have been running out of keys almost as soon as we've given them!

Here's the good news:

We're sending out more keys! Over the next couple of days, many of our partners will be releasing more keys to allow you to join us in Open Beta! Just a few of the sites that you'll want to keep an eye on for keys are listed below:
  • IGN/Fileplanet
  • Rock, Paper, Shotgun
  • Eurogamer (DE/DK/UK)
  • Alltern8
  • Allvatar
  • Buffed DE...


And many more! Please keep an eye on our Open Beta Page to be kept aware of where you can get beta keys. We will update that page with more information as we here about our partners putting their keys out there!

Thanks!

I just preordered with Amazon and got no info on a key. Do they send it with the box? That would be ridiculous.

How exactly is it an open beta if you have to scrounge for a key?

..or having to pay for one, im surpised that some big name sites are only giving open beta keys for premium accounts after subscribing..i mean i understand its a way to generate income so i dont totally blame them, but i didnt think Cryptic would be happy with open beta keys effectively being sold?

Who was the moron who decided that open beta keys should be given to sites that require you to purchase a membership with them in order to get a key? And, a $300 lifetime membership? That's a lot of money to chance on a game that could fold in less than a year. I'm not saying that the game will fold, but with the way things are, it's possible. Personally, the open beta keys should have went to registered users of the STO forums and any that were left should have been given out to reputable gaming sites with the stipulation that they were to be given away, not sold.

Amazon uk/us stopped giving out beta keys on January 7th sorry, all you will get for preordering now is the borg bridge officer and the collectors edition codes that are contained in the box, sorry to be the one to have to tell you this though.
