Nope, you should receive an email today or tomorrow.

I was in the original beta however I also pre-ordered off Amazon so I got a beta2 key :)

.

Awesome. I'm just going to order it from EA's client. No need for an actual disk.

Doesn't look like I got into this weekends beta, signed up 2 weeks ago. I need to try it before I waste money on it.

They might not have sent the beta codes out yet.

AKA 24 Hour Demo to get you hooked so you'll buy it.


Pretty much, but they have supposedly taken on board a lot of feedback from the last beta.

A lot of the beta keys are for people who pre-ordered (ie it's a tactic to increase pre-orders), and in the last beta the thing kept nagging about pre-orders .. very annoying, especially when you do have it on pre-order.

I don't have any screenshots, but I enjoyed these YouTube videos of the first beta.



I pre-ordered it from Origin, but have yet to receive any beta 2 key!

So if you were in the first you should automatically get in the 2nd?

just watched all 3 videos and am really impressed. I just wish I had a PC able to run it (im sure my old c2d laptop wont be able to). Love all the add-ons for certain buildings to upgrade it.

Maxis says beta 2 keys are going out tomorrow, Saturday.

A: If you have been selected, you will receive an email during Saturday February 16 with your unique redemption code and instructions how to join the beta. We want to get as many fans into the beta as possible, but we can only invite a small group of fans to participate.

Also keep in mind there is technically an NDA so anybody on these boards in the beta cannot talk about whats in it.



Unless the NDA has changed from the Beta 1, you are allowed to talk about, show screenshots and videos if you are in the Beta. You are not required to keep it secret :)

"You may disclose the following information and content, for non-commercial purposes only:
The fact that there is an official Beta Program for the Game.
2. The fact that you are a member of the official Beta Program for the Game.
3. Screen captures, pictures, videos, screenshots of any content in the Game or other Beta Materials.
4. Comments regarding the Game based on your participation as a Beta Tester.
5. Comments about features or functionalities in the Game or other Beta Materials.
6. General comments about the Game’s overall development."

I am curious how the extra addon will take over with the pre order. Should it be available right away?
