Whenever any highly anticipated game enters a closed early access period, those looking on the outside will often go on a wild goose chase searching for codes, keys, Twitch drops, or giveaways as a means to get in. NetEase announced it would only send access to about 30,000 players, but there’s more than one way in.

None of these methods are fully guaranteed, but here are some potential ways to get access to the Marvel Rivals closed alpha test.

Officially qualify via sign-ups

Most players were invited directly by the developers via the official sign-up email, but if you’re searching for ways to get in, you probably didn’t get an official key from NetEase. However, you should check your spam folder or your Promotions tab if you use Gmail as your invite to the closed alpha might be in there.

Get invited by a friend who has reached level six

One surefire but limited way to get into the Marvel Rivals closed alpha is to get a key sent to you by a friend. By meeting specific milestones on the Event page, players can earn additional codes that can be sent to their friends.

Once a player hits level six, they can snag an extra invite code from the event page. However, there’s a daily quota for the amount of extra invite codes that can be given out. This daily quota resets every day at 7pm CT.

Get lucky with a giveaway from a content creator

Across social media, there are certainly numerous giveaways with prizes that include one or multiple codes. If you join the Marvel Rivals official Discord server, they host giveaways there.

Just a day before the start of the closed alpha, NetEase Games and Marvel announced that 5,000 keys for the closed alpha test will be given away through content creators, with the creators with more viewers and hours watched receiving more keys to give away. The codes will be “dispatched to content creator’s live rooms,” so you’ll need to be in the streamer’s chat room to get a key, but it’s not guaranteed that every streamer playing the game will have keys to give away.

We’ll keep you posted if any other methods for Marvel Rivals sign-ups pop up!
