Giveaways Cities XL beta key giveaway

Eurogamer has teamed up with Monte Cristo to offer 500 keys for the Cities XL closed online beta test, where real people will build cities and work together, trading produce and creating the most prestigious metropolis of them all.

You need to be a registered Eurogamer community member to claim a key. If you are, grab a key below. Simple.

Why? Well, there are no elves in Cities XL. There are no levels, no raids, no spells, no rats. No bickering. Cities XL has cities and cooperation, trade and produce; hard hats not wizard hats. Cities XL is different, and interesting as a result. You're the mayor, as our recent hands-on impressions of Cities XL points out.

The online mode for Cities XL will carry a small monthly subscription when launched, and there will be an offline mode for mayors to hone their skills in. Cities XL is due out proper later this year - 3rd September if you are French or German. Get a crucial head start: claim a key below.

This giveaway has now finished. If you successfully claimed a key, it should appear below, along with instructions for what to do next.
