Starcraft 2 beta

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm's public beta to close in March

Well I hope you've had your fill of Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm's public beta, because Blizzard's free sampling of their upcoming expansion is coming to an end on March 1st. That's a scant three weeks (minus two days) away, so there's still time to jump onboard if you've been holding off. The good news, of course, is the game's release only 11 days later (with the private beta continuing in the intervening time).


StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm beta has hatched

Unleash the swarm! The closed beta for StarCraft II's upcoming Heart of the Swarm expansion is alive and squirming. If you opted in to StarCraft-related beta tests on your Battle.net profile, you may be sitting on an invite already. I'm not as of yet, but Blizzard is getting a one week grace period until I start getting the shakes. Regardless, we've got some details on how testers are being selected.
