Trion Worlds and Shacknews have teamed up again, this time for a key giveaway for the final beta test of the upcoming free-to-play real-time strategy MMO End of Nations. At stake are 20 keys and the chance to join in on an exclusive five-on-five Shack Battle with the devs.

The pink camouflage skin

Thanks to Shack Chatty regular dahanese, we couldn't give away just the standard vanilla beta keys. Nope, we have keys that get you a pink camouflage skin to be used during the beta. And of those 20 key winners, five people will be chosen (based on availability) to take on the devs at Trion and Petroglyph on October 5 at 5 p.m. PT. The event will be livestreamed on TrionWorlds.com. (Update: The map will now be 4v4, so only four people will be selected, not five) The final beta is coming October 4 and will run through that weekend. The devs have made several new features live for testing, including a new 56-player map, and a a couple four-player co-op maps. As a thank you for helping them test the game, beta testers will get a bonus of 500 credits when the game launches. Now that you have the prizes and details, here are the rules: In the comments below, entrants must submit one simple three-line haiku discussing End of Nations. Dahanese will pick 10 winners and I will pick 10. Deadline for entries is Sunday, September 30, which allows time to pick the Shack Battle participants. If you need any more encouragement, check out the Gamescom trailer for the game. Have fun, and thanks to Trion for the opportunity.
