How to sign up for the 'Shadowrun' Beta

The fine folks over at FASA Studios have just opened up a public beta for ‘Shadowrun’ and they asked me to spread the word.

This is for the Xbox 360 version, and since it is a Multiplayer Beta you will need to be a Gold member subscriber to participate.

 Ready to apply? Here ya go:

1. Visit the beta Web site at http://connect.microsoft.com.
2. Click on "Invitations" on the left-side menu.
3. You will need to sign in using a valid Windows Live ID before you can continue to the "Invitations" page. (If you have already registered for the Connect site, skip to Step 5.)
4. Please read and accept the Terms of Use Agreement then follow the instructions to register for the Connect site.
5. Enter your Invitation ID in the blank field. Your invitation ID is: SHBS-6YMT-YKHC
6. Click "Go."
7. Complete and submit the short questionnaire. Please enter MAJOR1 for the beta code when asked at the beginning of the questionnaire.
8. If you are not redirected immediately to the Shadowrun Beta Selection homepage after completing the questionnaire, click the My Participations link on the left hand navigation bar and then click the Shadowrun program link.  This will redirect you to the Shadowrun Beta Selection Homepage.
9. Once you are on the Shadowrun Beta Selection Homepage, you will need to complete the rest of the registration process by signing up for the forums by clicking the Join the Forums button then click the Welcome to the Official Shadowrun Community Forum Sign In button.
10. Wait patiently for us to contact you with further instructions.  Check back at http://connect.microsoft.com for further beta announcements.

Please direct all questions to [email protected].

Have fun with this guys.  I'd like to try this, but I have zero time to do so (did sign up though in case I do find some spare time).

You get to kill Soulchilde.  If that's not exciting enough then you're already dead  Tongue

oh, and it has cyberpunk mixed with fantasy, but it's only a FPS and not a true RPG like the Shadowrun game is.

I had the problem with errors when trying to sign up last night from another source with another beta code.  I have a feeling the error means they are getting hammered.

I've never done this before, but the game sounds interesting and it's worth a shot to see if I'm selected.  Here's to hoping.

Read up a little on the game and figured why not; giving it a shot...  (It did fail for me using Firefox, but was fine in IE, if we are keeping track...)

Good question. Microsoft is turning what once used to be a great franchise into a generic Quake like title with special powers.

For me, I actually like this.  Not because of the fact that they ruined a chance for a good Shadowrun RPG, but because maybe they will make an exciting FPS with some new features.  I like the idea of customization of the shooter with sorcery elements and, assuming it plays well and is balanced, should provide a nice twist on the traditional FPS.

I'm hoping that if this shows that people are still interested in Shadowrun we might see an RPG spinoff...

I love Shadowrun and think it could be done right.  Doubt they will though.  I really look forward to a true MMORPG complete with cyber infiltrations.

Well at least after the reaction to their horrible non-human character art they have gone back and done some redesigns apparently.  Seeing the earlier screenshots absolutely turned me off, so hopefully when they start showing the other guys again it will be a vast improvement.

That would be cool.  Imagine an assault where you have a hacker or two supporting the assault team as they move through the area....  drool

You can, however, accidentally gust them off the top of a building.
