Got 1 outta 4 this weekend. Missed the last by like 6 minutes...

Not only is my Golden Key not the "one per character" as they said it would, but apparently in order to get more, you have to both watch Twitter all day long, AND be ready to put that code in within 2 hours of it being posted?

WTF is this bullshit? Some kind of social media experiment?


Not sure where you read 'per character' since all golden keys are bound to the copy of the game, and each of those codes are redeemable once per Shift account (which is linked to your Steam account, I'm sure, to prevent multiple Shift accounts per copy of the game).

And as I stated earlier, they've been stress testing their validation servers this past week. First it was a limited number of redemptions per code so they get that big spike of people using it at the same time, then throughout this weekend they did the duration-limited codes at various times of day. In other words, it's like a beta test for those relatively few people who are following closely.

These are not the only times you're going to be able to get golden keys; in actuality, they've not yet begun to do proper giveaways. Any that have been handed out so far are basically bonus rewards for helping this testing process, so that the system actually works when they go full scale...
