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. nope "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 Battle.net 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.
