Players who applied to be Heart of the Swarm beta-testers can find out now if they are part of the lucky few to be initially invited. The multiplayer-only beta went live yesterday evening (PDT) and will be available to a select few participants. Blizzard said via their website that it would be sending out more invites shortly, so if you haven’t received an invite yet, you may still be in with a chance. If you would like to participate, make sure you’ve opted-in by clicking on the “Beta Profile Settings” under the Account Management section of your Battle.net account.
Blizzard also answered some frequently asked questions which confirmed that both Mac and Windows users will be able to access the beta. Heart of the Swarm will also support English, German, French, and Korean languages, with additional languages a possibility in the future.
There is still no firm release date for Heart of the Swarm but entering the beta-test phase is definitely a step closer to the game’s arrival.
