StarCraft 2 Beta Signups Open

By Nick Breckon, May 06, 2009 6:22pm PDT Update: Blizzard tells IncGamers that the test will be multiplayer-only, and may only include only a portion of maps from the title.

Additionally, WWI 2008 beta keys and BlizzCon 2008 beta keys will indeed grant entry to the beta test.

Original story: Blizzard has officially opened up the StarCraft II beta opt-in, according to a new post on the World of Warcraft site.

"The StarCraft II beta-test period is coming in the months ahead! If you'd like a chance to participate, now's the time to let us know," reads the post.

Interested parties must simply visit their profile page, choose to opt-in for the beta, and re-submit their current system specs by way of a small downloadable piece of software.

Blizzard's SC2 beta FAQ explains that the North American beta test will begin first.

Thanks to Zerbyte for the heads-up.

  • Cool, should be good. Was hoping it be D3 but you know I will take what I can.

    Man surprised no one has complained yet. So not only does blizzard have your email, they make you enter valid keys on their web site they also make you download an app that scan your hardware foot print that you then submit.

    This screams potential DRM to those wolf packs of hungry Blizzard fans. I am sure Blizzard will have zero piracy if this info structure becomes a mandatory step for playing any of their future games.
    Personally I don’t really care too much but it may be a tad much, or maybe I am reading way too much into it.
