sto-betaWouldn’t you like to be one of the first people to try out Cryptic’s upcoming and highly anticipated MMORPG, Star Trek Online? Wouldn’t you like to be one of the guys or girls who get the chance to beta test the title before release? If you would, read on to find out the details of taking part in an amazing beta keys giveaway for Star Trek Online.

The (free) web-based gaming magazine Thirteen1 is giving away no less than 50 Star Trek Online beta keys and it’s really easy to try your luck for one of the highly wanted keys. Here’s what you have to do:

You will first need a Twitter account, since 45 of the keys will be given via Twitter. When Thirteen1 makes a tweet (follow them here) announcing an open window of opportunity, you will have 3 hours to go to their website via the tweeted link and enter both your e-mail & Twitter name. After the 3 hours are up, Thirteen1 will automatically pick a winner and announce it on their Twitter feed.

Once you have entered, you will be automatically entered into the draw for every window of opportunity – meaning 1 entry puts you into 45 draws! However, if you want to increase your chances of winning, you can enter your details every time a new window opens and multiply your chances of getting beta access.

In addition to the twitter giveaway, Thirteen1 will also be giving 5 keys away through their community forum. All you have to do is tell them why you deserve a key here (TIP – Be original and catch the eye of the judges. A daft video or a picture always goes down well!)

Remember that this STO beta keys giveaway ends on January 1st 2010, so you’d better hurry up! Good luck!
