Heroes of the Storm Public Test Realm Launch

Heroes of the Storm has their public test realm opening up tomorrow. The Eternal Conflict will invade the Nexus in the next patch, and they need your assistance in testing some of the new content and changes it contains before the update arrives on June 30. In order to do this, a public test realm will open up tomorrow.

Accessing the PTR is easy! Click over to the Heroes of the Storm tab on your Battle.net application, and then follow these steps:

  • Click the Region/Account dropdown list found just above the big blue “Play” button.
  • Select “PTR: Heroes of the Storm” from the top of the list, and then click “Install”.
  • Once your installation completes, simply click “Play” to log in to the PTR.

Keep in mind that you need to have played Heroes of the Storm at least once before the PTR will be available to access. So if you can’t see it, trying logging into the game first, then look again.
