Company of Heroes 2 Alpha Test Registration

If you’re one of those that has been drooling and foaming at the mouth for any news you can get about Company of Heroes 2, this moment is going to be especially foamy for you. Get the towels.

You can now register for the closed beta, and if you act quickly, there’s a good chance you’ll get in to the special alpha test for tomorrow. Registration for the closed beta opens up right now, but the first 5,000 or so people that register will get access to a special Alpha Load Test starting tomorrow. The official closed beta begins in January, which is when pre-order customers and those with codes from THQ get in.

Now, keep in mind that this is basically a load test. Don’t expect any sort of polish or shine. This is a test to stress the networks and find connectivity issues. If you are accepted as an Alpha load tester, you’ll automatically be eligible for the closed beta that begins in January.

This will be the general public’s first chance to play CoH2. We may or may not have two Steam keys for the alpha test, if you’re a good girl or boy and if you pay attention to this space (this will be a good time to make sure you’re registered on Icrontic forums and you have at least one badge for your profile), you might just get lucky, like 84LMX-ZLLZN-Z72K4 for no reason.

    primesuspect I dunno. Maybe there are other keys hidden throughout the site. Maybe some of our older stories regarding Company of Heroes may have keys buried in them somewhere. I dunno. Stuff happens.

    primesuspect I MAY have sprinkled a giant handful of new Alpha access codes throughout the site. Maybe you want to search for THQ-related stories that Icrontic has covered in the last year or so...

  61. DietBrownie
    DietBrownie How do you get badges? Im acutally interested on this site as well it will help me get a code
  62. primesuspect
    primesuspect Hi @DietBrownie. There's a full list of badges here and most of them are self explanatory. You can introduce yourself in the Introduce Yourself thread to get the "New Neighbor" badge, for example. You can Tweet something about Icrontic for the Social Butterfly badge, Like us on Facebook for the "I Like Icrontic!" badge, and so on. Many of them are available by request (just use the request badge button next to the badge on the list), and as you explore Icrontic you'll definitely earn more. Welcome to the greatest community on the web. As @teramona says: Come for the games, stay for the awesome.

  77. primesuspect
    primesuspect Alright kids and drive-by visitors. Here's your chance at some more keys. Some of these are tough. Good hunting!

    • First is in our Steam group

    • Second is in a review of a PlayStation 3 SRPG title that takes place in an alternate universe in a historical period resembling World War 2, and features tanks and heroes named Welkin and Alicia.

    • Third is in a review for an Xbox 360 "first-person brawler" game in which you punch and kick your way through a very alien world as an anti-hero named Ghat.

    • Fourth is in an article that answers the age old question "Why do men like My Little Pony"?

    • Fifth is in an article explaining the best way to play one of the most beloved RPG franchises of all time—Final Fantasy.

    • Sixth is in a love letter entitled "Why Guild Wars 2 is going to be my MMO"

    • Seventh is hidden in another love letter: This is one that Terin wrote about her experience with the Icrontic community: Come for the games, stay for the awesome.

    • Eighth is in a video on our YouTube channel where UPSLynx parodies Enter the Ninja by Die Antwoord. "Mind of UPSLynx" is the name of the show.

    • Ninth is in a review for another THQ title based on a very popular tabletop battle game. The review was written by Peter Gill.

    • The final key is hidden in the 2012 announcement of our awesome annual Expo: Expo Icrontic 2012.

    Good luck, sleuths!

  81. Harxel
    Harxel The second quintet in "the best way to play final fantasy" is not complet
  82. NiGHTS
    NiGHTS I'm almost positive the code in the FF article is not entirely there?

    Good luck to whoever finds that one first :)
  83. Harxel
    Harxel I've got all the quintets but It's a letter or a number missing in the second one:
    "The second quintet is 58Z2"
  84. nique
    nique All keys have been taken
  85. Harxel
    Harxel The key on FF's article is bad or something, I've tried with all the possible characters and it doesn't work. Maybe some of the other 2 quintets are bad
  86. Canti
    Canti how its work to have a key???? i just the link for here on twitter
  87. primesuspect
    primesuspect Adjust your monitor or something. They're definitely there. It's definitely 5 characters. I just double-checked it and it's fine.
  88. Harxel
    Harxel Yes, you are right sorry.
  89. Novver
    Novver All taken already ? *weep* i am at work, right now, imwas at work last time too, when it took place, i missed both :( i will never be able to try the alpha or the beta :( is there any other way to get one?
  90. Ilriyas
    Ilriyas You can try the beta by preordering the game and supporting the official release. As for Alpha keys well, there were really only supposed to be like 5000 in the first place these are special cases.
  91. Canti
    Canti >at work
    >able to use the internet to search for access to a game alpha test
    >can't find a key that hasn't been activated already because "i am at work"

    What a shame.
  92. Novver
    Novver No steam to activate the keys, because these hospital pc's are restricted so you cannot install anythig, i am on my tablet now, and you cant redeem keys on android steam :-(
  93. Novver
    Novver in the last days i tweeted every single person/publisher/developer, but no aswer, i failed. This was my only option, or to buy a key for 10 dollars which can be a scam.
  94. Tushon
    Tushon They will probably have an open beta at some point, so make sure you register for there stuff and hope.
