StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Beta Goes Live

The public beta for StarCraft 2′s upcoming expansion set, Heart of the Swarm, has begun. Initially, this multiplayer-only test will initially be limited to a select group of pro-gamers, members of the press, Arcade contest winners, and shoutcasters, but it will soon be opening up to members of the public at large lucky enough to be selected via the Battle.net opt-in. Make sure your B.net beta profile setting is up to date!

Interestingly, you don’t actually need to have purchased StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty to participate in the HotS beta, although your level of Wings of Liberty activity may play a role in your chances of being selected as a beta tester.
