By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 32 comments

Get to play this online RTS before it's released!

Attention all gamers: Nvidia has supplied Tom's Hardware with 2,000 beta keys to Trion Worlds' End of Nations game. We're going to be giving each and every one of these keys to our loyal readers.

All you need to do is visit the Tom's Hardware Facebook page, click Like, and then click the End of Nations beta tab. You'll need to give some permissions to the app on Facebook, but that's only so we can match your name to a unique beta key to make sure that you get your own and not someone else's code.

Please note that these keys are for closed beta weekend on August 10-12th.

Once you have your unique key, you must follow the instructions noted below:

1. Sign in or register here
2. Click on "Apply Code" tab
3. Enter code as supplied via Facebook app
4. Once the event starts, you will receive an e-mail with download instructions

    Couldn't agree with you more, I hate that everybody wants to filter opportunities like this through social networking. Is not being a loyal visitor of the site not qualify me enough that I have to like it somewhere else on the web.

    Hey there guys,

    It's not really a matter of wanting to force our userbase into the social media realm. For the most part, it's a matter of ease of access and expeditiousness. We can get the codes to you quicker and more efficiently through this method than any other method we have (at least for the moment).

    We do realize that some of you don't like Facebook and flatly refuse to engage on the platform, but we have to work with what we have available to us.


    What could be simpler than giving you our direct email address instead of going through some weird facebook app? Not trying to get anyones panties in a knot, but i'm tired of these "beta" tests having to all go through facebook. Not all of them, but seems to be quite a few lately.

    Is it not possible to get these keys via Tomshardware? For example - you send a private message to an official from this company - and they reply back to you via PM with the code.

    BTW RTS's are one of my favourite genres.

    im not really interested in this game since I dont like RTS games, but I can't deny this deal is very appealing to fans. from what Ive seen of this game, it looks very polished in this current beta stage.

    but this article is pretty halfassed. shouldve at least put in a trailer to let people know what this game is like before blindly heading over to facebook.

    Agree with NuclearShadow.

    I don't really like the idea to give permission on my personal information for have a chance to win... a beta key.

    Also "Like" a group for get a beta key... it's so wrong.

    I prefer normal html page.
    So I won't participate.

    Better chance next time.

    Just practice your fiction writing skills. It's not like they're going to verify the info.

    Played it in Alpha.

    While the concept is quite solid, for me the game feels like DoTA in a mech/tank package; the same way SWToR feels like WoW with lightsabers.

    It's worth at least a try for sure. I had a lot of fun with it, but have my mind set on GW2.

    How about we just post a request on this page and you can send each person a PM with the code. That sounds easier than using Facebook.

    I am much more likely to buy a game if I play the beta and like it... I am one of the ones that refuse to use FB. may have lost a sale from me.

    NuclearShadowSorry but not going to make a facebook account for this.

    All these gimmicks just so Facebook can datamine and sell people's information. I have no interest in this.

    And people wonder why identity theft is skyrocketing.

    Sure seems like it since you could easily do this through your own site.

    I'm not understanding this desire to work with such a trashy company like Facebook that likes to prey on people who do not read on EULA and just click the Agree button.

    We are talking about a company that made a switch in their TOS to allow them to own rights to content from even deleted accounts and had to change that when they were called out on it.

    Now I know Tom's isn't the only company guilty of working with them, but all of you need to realize Facebook seems to be on the decline and more and more people seem to be waking up to what they really are. Perhaps Tom's could take the lead in getting away from the FB fad.

    For all of those whining about not having a FB, ask an IRL friend with one to get a key for you.
