12:40 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Blizzard today announced that starting tomorrow, February 14th, the company will allow gamers to sign up to beta test Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the upcoming expansion pack for Warcraft III. Overall, 10,000 beta testers will be chosen.

The beta signup is scheduled for a seven-day period beginning at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8.) on Friday, February 14th and ending at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8) on Friday, February 21st. Applicants must be at least thirteen (13) years of age, have the bandwidth capability to download 100 MB of data, have a valid email address, and possess a valid Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos CD-Key to be eligible to enter the beta test.

Here's more on the Warcraft III expansion pack:

Following in the tradition of previous Blizzard expansion sets, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne provides gamers with a vast new chapter in the epic Warcraft saga. In the single-player campaign, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, yet a new threat has arisen throughout the land...

  • One new Hero per race, each possessing powerful spells and magical abilities
  • A host of new units, each equipped with new abilities and spells, giving players the opportunity to create diverse strategic and tactical forms of combat
  • Player-built shops, unique for each race, equipped with items carefully designed to improve and aid the units of every race
  • Neutral Heroes, available for recruitment by all players, that can supplement and strengthen a player's army with all new spells and abilities
  • Expanded multiplayer options over Battle.net including multiple new game types, clan and tournament support
  • After the registration period, Blizzard will randomly select 10,000 testers to participate in the initial phase of the expansion beta test. Multiple submissions will result in disqualification.

    The beta, which will be playable only over Battle.net, will give selected testers a chance to play-test many of the new features that are available to each of the races in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos--Humans, Orcs, Night Elves, and Undead.
