Just logout of Nexon Launcher then log back in!
Turns out you don't need a key of sorts, it looks like it's definitely account bound.
Also run as admin if you're installing into the c: drive, had an installation failed error when doing that without admin privileges.

    Mine just says sign up now. Doesn't have a download button. I was accepted into Closed Beta.

    *edit

    Never mind I've got it too. For those having the same issue, just reset the launcher.

    You don't say. Common sense anyone?

    There were a few people going around saying Nexon will send you a beta key for that Activate Game button, was just clarifying that

    I'm downloading the Nexon Launcher. I'm surprised games run through launchers. Call me old fashioned. I wouldn't have mind if I had to just download the game to my desktop either.

    I was confused as there was no download button. However, I realized if I clicked "play" then the download button would appear.

    There was an "activate game" button with a prompt to enter a key.
