Open Beta: NDA Lifted
Public Beta: Open to everyone

Register on the official SE site and hope they email you a Beta Key. Once you have been granted access to the dev site, download the client and updates.

Well that's the rumour that spread around forums, SE have never said that it'll only be open to invites.

They have said "We hope to see everyone participate!", that players may receive messages that the server has reached capacity (implying they're expecting a lot more players online than they've had in the past), and that the open beta applications site is opening soon.

There any way to torrent the current client and then update it once OB starts up? I dont particularly want to try downloading several gigs of data along with a few thousand other people.

Using a torrent to download the game defeats the purpose of using the official client to do so. I think a few people actually got banned from playing the beta for doing it that way.

If we already have the closed beta client, do we need to uninstall it or can it be patched?

Yet they have mentioned that there will be open beta applications before, not to mention we got the warning from zam to use our CB keys to ensure SE sent us an OB key when it started. While we haven't been giving anything concrete, its really pointing to "Open" not "Public" so far.
