Heroes of the Storm Open Beta Begins
Answer the call of the nexus, and download the Heroes of the Storm client to start playing right away. Open Beta has begun.
Get ready to unleash the Burning Hells with Diablo, kick up a revolution with Raynor, and seek vengeance with Sylvanas, because Heroes of the Storm Open Beta testing has officially begun! If you didn’t get the chance to leap into the fray during our Technical Alpha or Closed Beta phases, right now is a great opportunity for you and your pals to dive headlong into our raucous online team brawler before the game launches on June 2. That’s right—no more keys, codes, or opt-ins; you can click here to start downloading Heroes and embark on your conquest in the Nexus, for free, today.
If you’re brand-new to Heroes of the Storm, you might like to check out our video below for a quick crash course on the Nexus while waiting for your download to complete.
Kindly keep in mind that Open Beta is still not final release, and we will be closely monitoring the game to ensure a positive play experience for everyone. Should one-too-many brawlers try to cram through the Nexus Portal at once, you may encounter a queue when attempting to log in to the client. Not to worry, however, as the wait should be brief, and you’ll be back to crushing opponents in no time.
Additionally, feedback from players just like you will continue to help us shape Heroes into the best game it can be through Open Beta, launch, and beyond. If you’d like to share your thoughts on the game with us, be sure to head over to the official Heroes forums and join in the conversations there.
While we’re thrilled to open the floodgates for this final phase of beta testing, we’re also rapidly approaching Heroes of the Storm’s official release, and we’ve got some exciting plans in store! We’ll be celebrating the Heroes launch with a spectacular event in London, UK, featuring developer interviews, live musical entertainment, and much more. If you can’t make it to the launch event in-person, don’t worry. You can still answer the call of the Nexus from home by tuning in to the live broadcast, and be sure to join in the mayhem using #NexusCalling on Twitter and Facebook.
