Put the pedal to the metal with some Need for Speed World beta keys!

Do you know what driving online is like? Driving online is like taking your awesome, putting it on a counter, tapping the buddy on your left and telling him, "Did you see my awesome? Take a look at it." Then, once he looks at your awesome, you turn your awesome into a hammer and beat the crap out of him with it.

Or, at least, that's what we were told driving online is like. Your actual online experience may vary, but we can guarantee you one thing: you'll be driving fast.

But you can't drive without a beta key! It's really hard to play Need For Speed World without one of those things. Lucky for you that our good friends at Electronic Arts hooked us up with 15,000 Need for Speed World keys, so we don't think you'll be missing out on this event!

Looking for a key, or want to see the awesome trailer for Need for Speed World? Look no further than after the break.

What's this online racing thing all about?

Need For Speed World, for those of you who didn't see our E3 coverage, is an MMO racing game where you get to drive through the best of the Need For Speed franchise. From Hot Pursuit to classic racing, you'll be in a giant city with thousands of other racers.

As you race, you'll rise through the driving ranks, earning access to more vehicles, tracks, and game types. You'll also earn yourself more driver skills at higher levels and more customization options for your car, so you'll look sweet while leaving everyone in the dust.

If this sounds like something you want to do, then grab a key below and visit the key redemption page over at Need For Speed World. The beta doesn't start until the 28th, so you'll have some time to get your racing skills prepared. Vroom vroom!
