Get your free Cities XL Beta key here

**UPDATE** All the Beta keys have now been sent out - hope you enjoy the Beta and thanks to everyone who PM'd us.

Fancy building a city on another planet? Well, now's your chance. We've got 100 free keys to give away that give access to the month-long Beta test of Cities XL - the new city building simulator from Monte Cristo.

The game features expansive online and offline modes and gives players five slots to build cities on different planets. There are 25 different maps and around 500 buildings from various architectural styles to draw upon.

The beta gives you one city slot but you can choose one of four different planets to build it on. You'll also have access to the multiplayer 'Planet Offer' which lets you interact with thousands of other players, trading and creating special buildings to add to the fun.

You can find the Cities XL Beta website as well as the forum here. This will be your hub to all Cities XL Beta infos: latest news, patches, game activity, support, FAQ, etc.


The keys will be allocated on a strictly first-come, first-served basis. Once you've received your key, you'll need to sign up for the Beta (and agree to the NDA) here.

What are you waiting for? Get PMing!

Above: Better hope your PC's good enough to render that little lot
