Wildstar open beta tomorrow

With rather short notice Carbine announced that the open beta for Wildstar will start tomorrow. And presumably will go on for 3 weeks or less, as the headstart begins May 31st. While I am aware that Wildstar will not be for everybody, I would very much recommend giving the open beta a try. Try to play at least one character to at least level 10 (which shouldn't take more than a few hours) to get an impression of the game, as levels 1 to 6 are rather linear and the game only opens up in the third zone.

As this is a full price game with subscription, the open beta is an ideal, but short, opportunity to test the game out. And unless you are allergic to cartoonish graphics, Wildstar has a lot of positive qualities that are well worth experiencing for yourself to form your own opinion.

Comments:
Probably a very stupid question, but I seem unable to locate a "download" link on their page.... is it hidden somewhere?
(extra bonus if it's a torrent download I can run in the background....)
 
Is the Beta free to play? I was scouting around their page but couldn't spot a download link.
 
I believe it's a 10 day open beta, running from the 8th to the 18th.
 
Ok, the info states that you must visit the open beta page to request a key, starting tomorrow.
Considering the 20Gb download, they could have provided a download link..... if they don't use torrent or akamai it'll take 10 days just for the download :)


 
The open beta is free. But I guess you need to sign up for the beta and create an account to get a download link. That is how the closed beta worked.
 
I really wanted to try it, but I had to quit after 10 minutes. Doesn't matter how good the game is, I just couldn't stand looking at it. I didn't even see the quest givers and objectives, too many colors, too visually noisy. Also couldn't stand the humour (one of the first quest had you torturing and burning spies or something).
