If by 7, you mean 2, then yes.

I'm surprised at the lack of FE articles as of late.

I clicked through the tweet, having misread it as "NSFW keys." I am disappoint.

I've played 3 titles in the Need for Speed series (PC & console). One thing that's prevalent in all of them. THE AI CHEATS. A LOT. Everyone knows this. I'd be a few seconds in front of the race, I turn on the nitrox a few seconds before the finish line and the AI is suddenly right behind me. Sure the devs are trying to make races feel more dramatic but all the cheating makes for a very very frustrating experience. I expect this game to do the same.

Good thing this game is centered around other drivers then, and less on the AI. :D

But I know what you mean. I think all racers do that. Split/Second has that problem, Blur is notorious for it, and Mario Kart is downright legendary for throwing blue shells at you.

Need For Speed World: NFSW

Not Save for Work (aka porn): NFSW

Marketing cock-up or am I just being a bit of a pedant?

Not Safe for Work = NSFW, so the F and S are swapped around.

And employers would easily notice that your not looking at porn but an MMO for NFS if they clicked on what you were looking at after noticing the "NSFW" bit

Ok so the link on the key giveaway says its for closed beta testers only. When I go to my account page I can't find to put in the key.

Now I was in the previous beta. So maybe I'm just being greedy and hoping they added new stuff

Well from the announcement launch it looks like we will get the performance upgrades. Looking forward to this on Monday

Patch notes include -

will include some much-requested features such as performance customization packs for each car, Private Matches, 50 levels of progression, new vehicles, a Meeting Place for car shows and a whole new world region (Camden).

I had the same issue, but fixed it by removing the invisible space at the end of the key that you get when 'copying' the key

Well, this giveaway has given me two different keys during my visits, and both of them have said that they've already been redeemed.

I realize the beta don't start until the 28th, but can you pre-download the client somewhere?

On https://world.needforspeed.com/
Once you redeemed your key and are logged on, there should be a big green 'Download Now!' button.

Similar questions here. Just downloaded the 5meg installer, installed it but when I try to log in I get an 'undefined error' appear. Do I have to wait for the beta servers to launch before I can patch (which also means downloading the full client)?
