+ Unrestricted Play: Players will have access to all zones, instances and gameplay tools.

+ Pre-Load and Get in Fast: Client is available to Pre-load Beginning March 19, 2010 from the official website.

+ Account: Users will need a valid Champions Online account to play (no purchase necessary). To register a new account, please visit our website.

+ Revive Old Favorites: If you’ve previously played Champions Online, you can login during the free trial time and continue playing with your old characters!

ETA:  Turns out you can get in,  but only if you actually click through the promotional materials and “sign up” for the free trial weekend.  Do game companies seriously think crap tactics like that are good for business?
