Get your MMORTS on because we have Ministry of War beta keys!


Look, we know that all of you have plans for world domination. That's nothing to be ashamed of. But what good are those plans when you don't have the chance to put them into action, right?

Well, that's where Ministry of War comes in. Ministry of War is a browser-based MMORTS that lets you step into the shoes of one of history's great nations: Egypt, Persia, Rome, or China. From there, you'll build your empire humbly at first. You'll build structures, study war techniques, and prepare your army. Then, when your enemies on the game's huge world map least expect it, you can launch a strike into their lands! Here's where the game becomes less like Civilization and more like Age of Empires, as you'll find yourself commanding your units on an RTS battlefield. That's right, no more having battles decided for you -- you control the fight.

The good folks over at Snail Games USA have allotted us 100 beta keys to give away to you fine folks. However, there is a catch: The keys will be distributed at random, much like one of our contests. Interested and want to know more? Charge after the break for all of the details and where to sign up for a beta key!

They didn't build Rome in a day... but you could!

If you're willing to sit on the throne and overthrow a few empires, then starting your conquest is as easy as visiting the Ministry of War website and signing up for our giveaway. We're taking entries for the first 100 beta keys until Sunday, August 22nd at 11:59 p.m. EDT. After that, our friends at Snail Games will choose 100 lucky entrants to receive first access into the Ministry of War beta.

But, good news if you don't sign up in time! If you sign up after August 22nd, your entry will be saved and added to the Ministry of War closed beta, so you'll still eventually get a key! We want everyone to get a shot at the game, so don't be discouraged if you don't get one of the first 100 keys. You'll get one down the line!

So, what exactly are you waiting for? A gigantic button to point the way? Here, let me help you out with that:
