. If you missed out on Blizzcon ’08 or hawked your beta code because you (wisely) anticipated that Blizzard might pull something like this, now’s your chance to register for StarCraft II’s upcoming beta test.
“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 World of Warcraft website.
Just sign-in over at Battle.net , wow Blizzard with your PC’s bleeding-edge specs (or even middle-of-the-road specs; really – this is Blizzard we’re talking about), and start F5-ing your inbox. Better still, even if Blizzard doesn’t deem you worthy of participating in this beta, the opt-in process still nabs you a spot in line for future Blizzard betas. Opportunity is knocking. Are you just gonna stand it up? Go on now. Go!
One semi-major stipulation, though: You must have at least one game registered under your Battle.net account in order to opt-in for StarCraft II’s beta. But hey, it could be worse. At least you didn’t have to fly out to California for a geek-tastic weekend of game-filled fun like those other suckers. Who in their right mind would want that?
