We are pleased to announce that Relic and THQ have extended the length of time to get into the beta until Monday July 5th. The catch is you have to do a bit of work.
Relic and THQ are going to use IGN.com's wishlist service as the gauge. They will hand out one beta key, per 10 people that sign up for the DoW Wishlist over the next day. So far, at least 300 people have already signed up (as of Friday). Hopefully, by Monday July 5th, we will have 300 or so more, which means a total of 20 keys each fansite to give out. Each fansite will be giving out keys separately.
To add DoW to your wishlist, first, you need an IGN.com account. Once that's setup, click this link or go to the Dawn of War Page and click the add to wishlist link. The wishlist is actually pretty handy, you can configure your IGN account to send you news updates about the games on your wish and watchlist.
Sometime late on Monday, the next step in the distribution of these extra keys will take place. Please note that if you are not 18, you will not be eligible to get a Beta slot due to legal reasons. However, like a good space marine sacrificing himself for the Emperor your signing onto IGN's wishlist will not be in vain! If you have 5 or more games on it, you are apparently automatically entered into a weekly draw for a free game! In addition, if you are a fileplanet subscriber, you know you will already be given direct access to the beta. Help out the rest of the community if you would though, so more people can get in and play.
