That's right, you read that headline correct. Blizzard has today announced that Oceanic servers are now available for their upcoming MOBA title Heroes of the Storm.
The new Oceanic servers are available starting today for those in the alpha testing phase, and will be available come launch of the game. To coincide with the local server announcement, Blizzard has also invited a significant number of Australian and New Zealand players to help test the game and their new servers.
These deployments reaffirm Blizzard's ongoing commitment to provide our players around the world with the best possible experiences. Australian, New Zealand, Southeast Asian, and European participants in the Heroes of the Storm™ Technical Alpha can now take advantage of improved gameplay responsiveness by playing on regionally-hosted game servers. The new infrastructure is available to all players in the listed territories throughout the game’s ongoing development, and will continue beyond the game's public launch.
Those wanting the chance to jump into the game and try out the new servers are encouraged to register over at the official website
for an opportunity to be added in the future.
