Just like other Blizzard games, Heroes of the Storm has a Public Test Realm clone of its servers, allowing developers to open the floodgates to the masses, and test new updates before they officially launch.
Well Heroes of the Storm is about to get just that, with the Diablo-themed Eternal Conflict update up for grabs a week early for those who’d like to try it out. If you want in, we’ve got instructions on how to get access to the PTR below.
First, a reminder on what exactly is inside the Eternal Conflict update.
To get in on the hot fiery action, open up your Battle.net, click on Heroes of the Storm, and follow these instructions.
- 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.
Do note, that you must have installed Heroes of the Storm, and logged into it at least once to gain access to the PTR option.
The PTR will be open on Tuesday, June 23rd, before the update launches to live servers on June 30th. Find out more about it righthere.
