For those of you looking for beta keys for Neverwinter, you can get a beta key and a free mount (one of two horses) by picking up a copy of PC Gamer's February 2013 issue or buying an electronic copy.  Here is a link to more information:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/12/20/pc-gamer-neverwinter-issue-item-february-236-edition/

Beta has not started yet, but you will have access when it does.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

I was thinking the same thing.  It says key, but for the mount.

Mount automatically gives you beta key also.

If the mount gave you beta access it would say that or have an * by it and explain it elsewhere on the page. Nothing anywhere mentions you getting beta access, just an in-game mount.

I can confirm buying the single issue using Zinio for 9 dollars got me beta access.

Edit: I can also confirm that it was stupid to not state that it gives access, when that might give more sales.  Also remember to answer the "question" in lowercase.  That tripped me up a few times, ha

No the download page says the usual coming soon and we'll notify you by email stuff.  It is a download button now that I redeemed the key though, instead of a sign up for beta button :P

 

Even the system requirements are "coming soon"

From a community manager at the official Neverwinter forums:

"Whoa! I apologize for all the confusion regarding PC Gamer and Beta access. Here is the word:

Redeeming the unique key code will grant you one of two horse mounts at random PLUS Neverwinter Beta access. However, we will reveal more official details about our Beta plans once we are closer to it and you will find out when and how you can access the Beta. 

Hopefully, this clears up any confusion you may have."

I agree with the above comments that it was poor marketing on behalf of PC Gamer and/or Neverwinter to not make this clear, though it was a nice surprise to get beta access when I was only expecting a free mount.

I didn't pay anything.  I signed up for a free-trial digital subscription through Google Play.  I can cancel within two weeks and pay nothing.  :)

So, you get access to a beta weekend or two.  Not the actually close beta.

Oh boy.

I'm only playing the role chosen for me. Who you supposed to be?

I just signed up:

 

 

Neverwinter Download coming soon!

If you have activated your Access Key, you will be notified when testing begins and will receive instructions for downloading and logging into the game.

 

You get access to the mount and beta with the PC Gamer key.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

How do I get the free trial?  All I see are subscription and buy issue.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

If you've already used your free trial once, it won't be available again.  Other than that, I don't know why you can't see the free trial information.  When I look at other magazines (since I've already used my free trial for PC Gamer), it clearly says above the subscribe button that there is a 14 day free trial or 30 days in other instances.  I am logged in to my Google account.  Maybe it doesn't show the free trial information if you're not logged in?

I never used my free trial (never even heard of google play before this), and I am logged in.

The only other suggestion I have is to try a different browser or contact Google Play support.  It worked for me and it appears to have worked for others according to their comments in this thread.
