This is a new error I encountered while trying to sign in.

Looks like going to have to wait until tomorrow. Sign ups close Dec 3rd so still got some time.

EDIT: Their site just went down @ 6:27pm PST. Expect to access the sign in once it goes back up.

I had no problem signing up for the PC alpha while in a car in the boonies on a tablet connected to my T-Mobile phone via WIFI tethering.

An Alpha, 2 months before pre-launch demo and an further 2 weeks after that for launch?
Hoo-Boy! Get ready for the "It's alpha/beta/testing crowd" when glaring issues persist into live.

I can feel it in my bones, I want this to do well but I'm losing faith these days :(

Thanks, signed up for PC.

Gameplay looks kinda bad in the videos other than when they're out of combat running/exploring/flying around (animations look cool), but I'm really into Destiny right now so I'm hoping this turns out to be a huge positive surprise when it comes out because it seems to be going for the same cool type of shared world online experience.

I would hope Origin Access Premier would make this automatic!
From their site:

I have Origin Access, EA Access, or I pre-ordered Anthem. Can I join the Closed Alpha?
If you’d like to join the Closed Alpha, you’ll need to sign up for it – the Closed Alpha isn’t tied to pre-orders or EA Access/Origin Access membership.

If you have Origin Access (Basic or Premier), EA Access, or you pre-ordered Anthem, you’ll still get VIP access to a pre-launch demo. Find out more about the pre-launch demo here.

Finally got my registration in. I really want to like this game, but I haven't preordered yet. I'll make a decision depending on how this goes.

Managed to sign up for Xbox One earlier today. Btw, is it recommended to customize your playtesting profile to increase your chances or anything? I remember it asking something about that earlier, but chose to do it later since I was on mobile and busy.

I selected the times and dates. Did i need to do that gaming survey as well or am I good?

Did you guys get a confirmation email?
You don't get a confirmation email yet.

This is what you should see after registering (sorry for the shitty quality, was on a work computer so took a pic from my phone):

Not sure how this works or if it’s even first come first serve...

Signed up as soon as the page went live, says “pending” on each of the play tests, but no confirmation email.

How did people that signed up 2 hours later get the confirmation email immediately.

I hit sign in, it doesn't even go to a sign in page, it just takes me directly into someone else's account. Whoever this NH person is, they completely declined any sessions of the Anthem Alpha.

How does the site end up this screwed? It won't even let me log out of their account, so I can get into mine. I'm about to tap out on this. I never get accepted anyway.

So because this sign up was never meant to be made public, the people who actually received invitation emails for it (like myself) have not been able to complete the registration all day.

Awesome.


And for those worried about the servers:

Just tried Microsoft Edge for shits, and was able to get it done within ~5 minutes of trying, versus the last 6 hours on Chrome.

Try Edge, Microsoft won this battle for me.

So none of us are actually going to get into it. Tip top.

Sorry for asking my question again. Buuuut.

Quick question for people that signed up. Did you get a choice for which PS4 region ? Cause i didn't.

I know it's controversial to say. But the industry needs something like this to be a true Destiny Killer. There needs to be stuff competition from a real flushed out ARPG title in this sector.

this was completely their fault. Why didnt they lock it to the emails that they went out to? Why allow the link to work with non-approved emails. If you really wanted people to play with friends, they should've waited until at least the approved accounts got in, then a day or two before alpha launch, hand out friend codes so people can play together.

I finally got my sign up submitted but this was silly. They shouldve known better. These gamers aint loyal.
