When and how can I purchase the SOE Live Digital Pass?
The passes will be on sale from August 12th through August 18th. You'll be able to purchase the pass by clicking the Subscribe button below the video player which will then take you to the purchase screen to enter your payment information (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, PayPal accepted). After a successful payment is made, an activation code will be sent to your Twitch.tv private message inbox. Don’t worry if some of the text on the Twitch purchase page refers to a subscription. That is the primary thing they sell and it couldn’t be changed to accommodate this one time digital pass transaction. You’re getting our Digital Pass of awesome goodies. Follow those redemption steps, and you’re good to go!
Do I need to purchase the SOE Live Digital Pass to watch the livestreams?
No! Anyone can view the livestreams at the official SOE Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/soe) Purchasing the pass is an optional extra, so you can have even more fun attending the event remotely!
Over the entire SOE Live convention we have over 20 hours of streams planned, and this pass invites you to make the most of it all! Make sure to buy your optional SOE Live Digital Pass at www.twitch.tv/soe starting August 12th. We will see you at SOE Live either IRL or online!

How do I activate my Landmark 7 Day Beta Key?
If you have already consumed your key per the above instructions, all you will need is the installer and you’ll be ready to play once the game downloads!
DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION
- Please click here. You will be directed to the Landmark login screen.
- Please login with the Station Account you used to redeem the key.
- Click on the download button to start the download process.
- When the download prompt appears, choose ‘Run’ to immediately begin.
- The installer will run you through setting up your install and it will automatically create a shortcut on your desktop.
- Please open the launcher and login using the Station Account you used to redeem the key.
- Read and accept our Closed Beta Testing Agreement.
How Do I redeem my PlanetSide 2 Hunter QCX-P?
Download the PlanetSide 2 client from www.Planetside2.com and log in using the same Station Account you used to consume your code. Once you create a character and log into game, the item will be waiting for you to pick up in the Notifications tab.
How does the H1Z1 item work?
Once your key is "activated" on a Station Account by following the above instructions, the H1Z1 nail bat will remain on your account for you to use either at the Early Access release on Steam (which requires a software purchase) or when it goes fully free to play. If you purchase Early Access, you'll need to use the same Station Account when going through the Steam set up. You'll have it earlier obviously, but if you choose to wait until the game is free to play don't worry it'll be waiting for you as long as you use the same Station Account when registering for the game upon release.
