Today, I received a StarCraft II Beta Invitation via email. Here is a snippet :
StarCraft(r) II: Wings of Liberty(tm) Beta Test Invitation
Congratulations, this is your invitation to the beta test for Blizzard Entertainment’s StarCraft(r) II: Wings of Liberty(tm)! Join us for the final weekend of testing!
You are receiving this email because you attended a special Blizzard Entertainment event, participated in a related contest or promotion, or have otherwise been selected to join the beta-testing process. This email contains your beta key along with instructions on how to get started.
Both the PC and Mac versions of the beta client are now available. Simply select your preferred version when you go through the installation process outlined below.
This beta key can only be used once by you to upgrade a Battle.net account to participate in the beta test, and it must not be traded or sold.
As a beta test participant, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the multiplayer gameplay of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and explore the social-networking, matchmaking, and other new features of Blizzard Entertainment’s revamped Battle.net(r) online-gaming service. Throughout the StarCraft II beta test, you’ll be able to take part in cooperative and competitive battles as the terrans, protoss, and zerg — and at the same time, you’ll be helping test the stability of the Battle.net service and fine-tune the game balance prior to launch. The developers look forward to hearing your feedback and seeing you on Battle.net!
I will see you in game!
