Excerpt from email received today from play.com:
It has come to our attention that some websites are reporting that play.com have sent out the beta access codes. Unfortunately this is incorrect, however we are due to send out our beta access codes soon and we estimate that they should be with you within 7-10 days. The Warhammer Online beta has yet to start and we will be sending the codes shortly so that they will be there in time for access to the beta when it opens.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and valued custom.
I know it seems odd to the non-UK crowd that we’re so obsessed with this but I promise we won’t mention it again after the boxes arrive 😉
