    Note this requires even existing players to get a key so it might actually be for June 1-3.
    I had to add it to my pre-existing TSW account.

    Got one!

    I'm glad too. I've had my eye on this game so I can't wait to give it a whirl. Thanks again Flutter.

    Anyone needing a little guidance trying this game out please give me a shout next weekend. (I really hope they had the right date there)
    I am out of town on the 1st unfortunately but I will be back for the rest of the weekend.
    If you log on and try please keep in mind you might be standing on the X which is the destination for your quest in the map but be on the wrong level... ie: you're underground and your target is up on the road or vice versa. I swear I spent half an hour looking for something when all I had to do was go upstairs.... LOL

    I am considering opening my ventrilo up for beta weekends.
    Would anyone actually be interested in using vent?
    I understand if not. I do love to do a lot of by-myself exploration in new games. Sometimes just so I don't look silly to anyone else while I am learning something new ;)
    Either way if there's enough interest I will definitely put a The Secret World Beta channel in my vent for folks to use.

    Out of bed to post another quick note.
    If you get a message when trying to run The Secret World that your drivers are out of date, and you know for a fact they aren't, just click no to the box offering to take you to a web page to update your drivers. It will go away and load the game fine.
    I have ATI video card with up to date drivers and I get the message every time. I click no and the game runs flawlessly.
    It may or may not happen, they may or may not have fixed it. Just sayin'.

    Fortunately for you guys, and unfortunately for me. I have had a severe case of insomnia since January 18th of this year.
    I got up out of bed because it was eating at me. I was going to email my good friend Customer Service. (I still say they've got the best customer service of any game I've ever played ever...) to find out when these NVIDIA keys are good for. SO many dates are rolling around.
    I got the OFFICIAL word for you guys:

    Sorry the color is all weird. If you can't read it change your forum style for a moment to something darker. I don't know how to fix that. lol
    Sorry guys. Looks like we've got to wait a bit to play.
    Direct Link to the post can be seen here.

    Go to 'edit', highlight the white text then click on the eraser top left of the edit box toolbar (above the B for bold) It removes formatting. :)

    Nvidia sent out an email today confirming what Flutter already told us. The beta has been moved to June 15th. I can't wait to try it! Here's a cool article from a Kotaku journalist about his early experiences in the game, it's pretty neat.
