StarCraft II beta extended

One extra week of testing.

As you can read on the StarCraft II website, Blizzard has extended the first phase of beta testing of the real-time strategy game.

Due to end yesterday, 31st May, the beta will now run in all regions until next Monday, 7th June.

At that point the beta will close "for several weeks while we make some hardware and software configuration changes" before the final phase of testing and release.

The final phase will last "a couple of weeks" prior to the game's launch on PC and Mac on 27th July.
