We are writing today to give some general information about getting access to the Menace of the Underdark Beta, and answer a couple of questions we’ve been getting in recent days.
If you are applying a Friends and Family Beta Key to your account, please make sure that you have first logged into myaccount.turbine.com before applying the key into the Product Key section of the screen. Additionally, you will be directed to create a new account and forum account in order to redeem the Beta key. Please follow the instructions to create a game account and forum account, which you will use to access the Beta client, and visit our Beta Forums. Please note that because the Beta keys can only be used to create a new sub, only new characters can be created on Lamannia with those subs. Feel free to create a Druid, as we need lots of feedback on the new class!
If you would rather access the Beta on your main account, this is possible too. We are currently accepting players who have pre-purchased the expansion. If you have added a Menace of the Underdark pre-sale key to your account, you are currently entered into our Beta program. The current list of players eligible to take part in the Menace of the Underdark Beta program is available here. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that pre-purchasers will get automatic entry into Beta forever, so order quickly to ensure your Beta access!
As always, enjoy the Beta! We greatly appreciate your participation and feedback as we prepare for the expansion's release in June!
