How to pre-register for Once Human beta

Once Human depicts a world in the middle of a disastrous pandemic. A horde of alien-like creatures known as Deviations have taken over the world, spreading the min-altering substance called Stardust. Any human, animal, or plant that comes into contact with Stardust becomes a Deviation, slowly but surely becoming more dangerous over time.

To counter this threat, humans have joined forces to form a Faction, with the five most skilled soldiers standing out from the rest. Although I'm inclined to join the Faction, playing as a Deviation also sounds like a fun experience! To get a taste of things to come, let's jump into the beta.
