A fresh wave of neon-soaked closed beta keys for VHS has been dispatched by Hellbent Games, the Canadian indie developer studio announced Thursday.

After initially being revealed in August 2021, VHS' closed beta has been raging on for adrenaline-seeking fans of the asymmetric multiplayer action genre. Those who have gained early access to play the game will notice its unique take on the dynamic between the hunter and the hunted as in VHS, "power shifts unpredictably between teens and the monster, ending in a guaranteed fight-to-the-death climax."

Of course, those interested in realizing this for themselves will have to secure their own closed beta key in the first place.

On Jan. 6, the official VHS Twitter page announced that the team over at Hellbent Games is back from their holiday break and have sent out a fresh wave of closed beta keys via email.

As is the nature of the beast, those looking to acquire one themselves will need to complete a few steps, and then hope luck is on their side if and when Hellbent Games releases another wave of keys.

To acquire a closed beta key for VHS, fans can head to the official VHS website, make an account and opt in for the beta.

Until Hellbent releases for more keys, however, fans can't do much at that point besides download the launcher and add it to their wishlist on Steam or Epic Games Store.

VHS is expected to only stay in beta access for less than a year, and reportedly will remain free to play after release.
