One of the most highly anticipated games of 2002 will likely be WarCraft III. Blizzard is gearing up for the release of the game by doing a public beta test early next year. On January 7th, people residing in the United States and Canada will be able to register for one of the 5,000 beta test slots. Here's more information on the beta test:
The beta signup is scheduled for a 24-hour period on www.blizzard.com, beginning on Monday, January 7th at 11:00 p.m Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8). and ending on Tuesday, January 8th at 11:00 p.m Pacific Standard Time (GMT -8). Following the registration period, we will randomly select 5,000 testers based on a variety of system configurations and locations. Please note that multiple submissions will result in disqualification. If you've been itching to get your hands on WarCraft III and feel you can be a good beta tester, head on over on the 7th to sign up.
