All players who are currently in the Alpha will get 7-day passes. That's over 3000 players already. That means, they will get a key that, when activated, will last 7 days.
All players who registered for the beta on shootmania.com will also receive 7-day passes. That means, they will get a key that, when activated, will last 7 days.
The length of the beta itself was not specified in this blog post. So we don't know that yet.
It's a closed beta though, as you can see on an image on shootmania.com. So I doubt the "pre-order to get the full beta" thing that worked in Canyon will apply here, at least not for this initial closed beta.

Agreed. That's the most likely scenario.
Current Alpha users will have to sign up for the beta as well on http://www.shootmania.com
, otherwise they wont be in the beta (or rather only for 7 days)
Actually they will use your email address that you've entered in your ManiaPlanet_Alpha profile in-game to send you your 7-day pass (if you were in the Alpha). Read what the blog said....
