Is Blizzard a little late to the MOBA game? Well it doesn’t really seem that way since games like DotA 2 and League of Legends are still going on pretty strong, although Blizzard might want to hurry up with the release of Heroes of the Storm. The developer has recently announced that they are beginning the next phase of the technical alpha soon.
The good news is that with the next phase, they will be opening up the game to everyone around the world. Previously only players in the US were invited, but now gamers from Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to get in on the action. However for those in countries like China, Korea, and Taiwan, they will have to make do with the English UI until it can be localized.
If you’re interested in participating, all you’d have to do is head on over to your Battle.net account and go to the Beta Profile page and select Heroes of the Storm, after which you’ll have to download a System Check tool to attach your computer’s specifications. This is not a guarantee that you will be selected to participate in the alpha, but it put you into the running at the very least.
However according to an earlier sighting, it seems that paid beta access to Heroes of the Storm could be taking place in the future, although given that the game is still in its alpha phase, there’s no telling when its beta will be released, let alone the final version of the game. We will keep our eyes peeled so check back with us at a later date for the details.
