Kerrigan's back and now in beta! VG247 reports that anyone who pre-ordered StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is now able to jump into the fray in a closed beta.

If you happened to have pre-purchased the game digitally before December 18th, 2012, you are now lucky enough to have access to the closed beta. We'd say that this is one of the best stocking stuffers we've heard of in a while. For all of you that want to Zerg-rush into the beta but didn't pre-order on before December 18th, the official blog says that a few retailers, like Amazon, are offering beta access codes for pre-orders.

But if you'd rather not go through the trouble of playing early and want to be pleasantly surprised by the game when it comes out, just bide your time until the March 12th, 2013 release.
