Blizzard has announced that it will be holding what it’s calling a technical alpha test of its upcoming MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, according to a new blog post. The new test will see a very limited number of players invited to "join us in an initial phase of infrastructure and technology testing."

The developer noted that the purposes of this test will be to ”help us better examine how our infrastructure and tech will function across a much broader spectrum of machines and connection types. What’s more, inviting external Alpha testers will allow us to take a closer look at our hardware needs so that we can be absolutely sure we’re able to support the entire Heroes population as the community grows."

Blizzard reminds those who may potentially be lucky enough to gain entry to this technical test that Heroes of the Storm is still under development, and you'll more than likely face a number of bugs and game features that are not yet implemented. The invites will be sent to United States players only sadly, and with the exception of some press sites out of the US, the developer is not sure when it will be expanding it to other territories.

Those lucky enough to be in the US can opt-in to the alpha test by simply ticking the Heroes of the Storm box on the Beta Profile Page of your account. Those who do gain access will also be able to talk freely about their gameplay moments, with Blizzard opting for no NDA during the tech alpha.

Heroes of the Storm is set to launch sometime during 2014 on Windows and Mac. Hopefully we'll be hearing more in the coming days.
