Giveaways Boost your RIFT beta chances!

There's plenty of noise surrounding new MMO RIFT. Eurogamer has declared the game "worthy of close attention" and now Ubisoft has become the European distributor, although Trion will handle the UK release.

Now Eurogamer wants to help you be a part of the very first RIFT beta event, which starts tomorrow and ends on Monday, 6th December.

We have 4000 keys to hand out that will greatly improve your chances of being picked to take part. To reiterate: these keys do not guarantee automatic beta entry - if we could do that, we would. Sorry.

To claim one, click below. You need to be logged in to your Eurogamer community account to claim a key. If you haven't got an account, you can sign up now - it's quick, easy and non-intrusive.

Note, too, that this won't be the only RIFT beta event. If you don't get in now, you may do next time.

RIFT will be released in full sometime next year.

"Among the dispiriting number of titles released to face Goliath, stand their own ground and give something back to an audience craving innovation rather than re-iteration, Rift is arefreshingly complete game offering enough new experiences to make it worthy of close attention," wrote John Bedford of RIFT for Eurogamer.

"In the battle of the heavyweights, Trion's first venture into MMOs may turn out to be the sucker-punch nobody saw coming."

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