*Update* They also posted a clarification message about activating your profile for Beta, and I’ll drop it, in it’s entirety below…

Hi everyone!

You’ve probably seen our big news today – Beta signups are official! But how, you ask?

First, log onto the forums; then click profile and it’s right there! For greater clarity closed beta starts today! we will be inviting users as soon as tomorrow.

Secondly, how the Founders program beta/early access works: The program is purchasable on June 19th and you gain guaranteed access to the closed beta on July 17th.

Thirdly, the reason this announcement stated ‘North America’ is that it’s for North American servers – As we have mentioned we are working very hard to launch MechWarrior Online in every region worldwide. We may also run a similar Operation for other regions, therefore we are required to recommend that for the best play experience you register and play in your region in the near future. However There is no IP blocking. You can signup from everywhere just keep in mind that if you are outside of North America we cannot guarantee your play experience.

Thanks for being the most awesome fanbase ever, and we hope this clears up your questions.

Sincerely,

The MechWarrior Online team.
