Starcraft II Beta Opt-In

Well it seems we may finally have some playable SC II Content! Very Happy


"StarCraftWire reports that Blizzard has started taking beta sign-ups for StarCraft II. Quoting: 'Interested parties must simply visit their profile page, choose to opt-in for the beta, and re-submit their current system specs by way of a small downloadable piece of software.' Blizzard's Chris Sigaty said in an interview, 'As with previous betas for our real-time strategy games, the StarCraft II beta test will be multiplayer only, and players will have access to all three races — terrans, protoss, and zerg — and all of their units. We'll include a selection of multiplayer maps, but they won't necessarily include all of the maps that will be in the final version of the game. We're making some great progress on the single-player campaign, but we don't plan to do a public beta since we want to keep the story under wraps until the game's out.'"


I for one, am definitely going to go for it!

You can sign up at

But do note that you must have a account, and own at least one blizzard game that has a cd-key (at least i think thats how it works) . I just merged my wow account into it. And then they got a program you download to record your system specs or something like that. I havent really got around to that part yet since I'm on dialup atm, but i'll be sure to do it tomorrow when i'm at my dads.

I cant wait to try it out! Very Happy

Hey just a question, I've never played Starcraft but many of my friends have and with the arrival of Starcraft II should I fork out $60 - $100AUS and buy myself a copy? I heard it's some what "melee" and I love melee <3.
YESH! Starcraft 2 is finally out after waiting for like 9 or more friggin years since it came out! Woot there is going to be a mass Zerg rush

It's probably "buy-worthy." As for "melee" that was the default setting to play against other players in a free-for-all game, but allows players to "team up" as well. As opposed to Ladder matches, Free-For-All matches--a later addition which plays like melee and prevents people from "teaming up", use map settings (or UMS) which are customized maps which usually play differently than any of the normal maps.
