The wait is almost over for those who haven't already made their way onto the stompy, mech-infested battlefields of MechWarrior Online by way of key or invite. Starting next week, the beta is opening up to all aspiring combatants. You have until midnight on the 14th to become part of the Founders Program, grabbing some exclusive rewards and hipster cred that you just can't put a price on.

Don't forget to grab a copy of our MechWarrior issue to get instant beta access, a custom PC Gamer skin, and a Coconut Monkey bobblehead to sit on your dash while you spew mechanized death at your enemies.
