    StarCraft II Closed Beta!!!

    OMGWTFBBQZERG THE STARCRAFT II BETA IS HERE!!!

    You can sign up for the beta via Battle.net, but "you must have at least one full version of a Blizzard Entertainment game attached to this Battle.net account in order to set up your beta profile".

    Here's the full press release.

    Blizzard Entertainment Begins Closed Beta Testing of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

    Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the closed beta test for its highly anticipated real-time strategy game, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, has begun. Thousands of gamers around the world have started to receive invitations from the company to participate in the first phase of the beta test. In addition to providing feedback on the multiplayer balance of StarCraft II, testers are also getting a first look at Blizzard Entertainment’s revamped Battle.net service, which will be the online platform for StarCraft II, World of Warcraft, and future Blizzard Entertainment games.

    “Gathering concentrated feedback from our players is an important step for us as we head into the final stretch of development for StarCraft II and the new Battle.net service,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We look forward to having our players’ help in polishing the overall experience and preparing for launch.”

    StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. Sporting a vibrant new 3D-graphics engine, StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is currently slated to ship in the first half of 2010.

    In addition, Blizzard Entertainment will again offer unparalleled online play through Battle.net, the company’s world-renowned gaming service. A new version of Battle.net will be launched alongside StarCraft II with several enhancements and new features to establish it as the premier online gaming destination for Blizzard gamers.

    For more information on StarCraft II and the beta test, please visit the official StarCraft II website at www.starcraft2.com. To set up a Battle.net account and sign up for a chance to participate in the StarCraft II beta test, please visit the official Battle.net website at www.battle.net.

    You've been able to sign up for the beta on battle.net for months now. You just have to be lucky enough to be selected now.

    The Korean stock market just crashed... or well, it would, if anyone was there to crash it. They're all at home refreshing their browsers, like most of you!

    So far no e-mail on the Beta. I have been signed up since they first allowed you to awhile back. Was hoping that the earlier you register the better off you are,
