NOTE: The rest of the codes are loaded and live! Click here to snag yours before they're all gone!

Our friends at NCSoft and Carbine Studios have hooked us up with 5,000 beta keys for their hot new MMO WildStar, and we've got the first 1,000 reserved just for our Huge members!

The beta weekend starts tomorrow at 7am and ends on Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific. To snag your code, just head on over to your Huge member perks page and click the button! Once you've got your key, go sign up for an NCSoft account if you don't already have one, then click the "Apply A Code" button at the top of a page. If you like what you see, head on over to the WildStar pre-order page and secure yourself early access to the full game in late May.

Have fun! Not already one of our Huge members? You should really consider signing up! They get automatic entry into all contests, early access to beta keys like this, ad-free browsing (that's also guilt-free), and more. It's pretty great!
