Heroes of the Storm alpha access for Aussies and Europeans coming soon

New regions are being added to the technical Alpha for Heroes of the Storm, which means those residing in Australia and Europe will soon be able to join their American brethren in the battle arena.

According to Blizzard, the upcoming phases will allow opted-in players a chance at being selected to for the Technical Alpha. If you don;t know how to opt-in already, just click here for instructions.

Along with more North American invites, the doors will be flung wide for those living in Australia, Europe, Latin America, New Zealand and South East Asia.

During this phase, the English client will continue to be used for all applicable regions until a fully localized client is ready. Invited players will be able to make purchases using their region’s currency.

"Our hope is that in the coming months we can release fully localized clients to support additional languages," said Blizzard. "Thereafter, we intend to widen our testing to also include Taiwan, Korea, and China. Following that, we are looking to implement fully localized clients for all remaining languages."

Heroes of the Storm is an upcoming MOBA featuring various characters from Blizzard IP. It is currently without a release date.
