Update: The giveaway has been triggered. The winners have been notified via e-mail. Only those ones who got a key will be notified. Thanks for entering.

Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War's PC beta went live today after spending a few days on PlayStation 4 exclusively last week. Now it's our turn, and we've got 300 keys to distribute. Want one? Enter your email address into the form below, and we'll randomly select winners to receive codes. (Note - we don't retain email addresses in this form, it's purely for sending a key directly to winners.)

The beta ends October 19 at 10AM PT, so in the interest of giving you as much time as possible with the beta, we'll begin sending out keys to winners today just two hours after this post goes up, at 5:30 PM Eastern time. Make sure you enter by then. If you miss out, Cold War goes into open beta on October 17.
