A beta for the upcoming StarCraft II expansion Heart of the Swarm is now live for a select number of people.

It is currently open to “pro-gamers, members of the press, Arcade contest winners, and shoutcasters,” but with no NDA there’s bound to be plenty of gameplay being recorded and live streams going on so be sure to keep a look out.

More players will be added to the beta soon, but make sure you have opted-in via your Battle.net account settings or you won’t be selected. “Beta testers are chosen according to their system specifications and other factors, including recent StarCraft II activity (and an element of luck), when selecting individuals during each round of invitations. Our goal is to have a wide variety of players and system types,” Blizzard explained.

You don’t need to own a copy of StarCraft II to take part in the beta.
