I've purchased and claimed the Legacy of the Void Beta, such that my account details show it against my account:

Battle.Net: Game Accounts

Clicking on that icon takes me to this page with information about the Beta, however there's nothing to indicate a 'Download the Beta now' or instructions on how to play:

Battle.Net: LotV Beta screen

The Battle.Net app also doesn't have any indication of how to launch the 'Beta' mode, so I assumed it was accessible after launching Starcraft:

Battle.Net application screen

And yet there's nothing after launching the game that screams "Access the Beta content by clicking here right now!" either (unfortunately screenshots of the game menu seem to fail so I can't show this).

Of course, my Google-fu is failing me: everything I find simply tells me to pre-purchase the game, or how to pre-purchase the game, without any indication of how to actually launch and play it.

So, How do I actually launch and play the Beta and/or the Prequel missions?

    This is a guess based on the WoW/D3 PTR (since I'm not in the LotV beta), but try the dropdown that says Region/Account on the Battle.Net client.

  • @Troyen - Omg, which brilliant spark at Blizzard thought THAT was a good idea?!? Yeah that's it. Would you care to add it as an answer?

  • There used to be a link on the website for betas, not sure why they got rid of it. It's definitely not very noticeable now.

  • @Troyen - yeah that's what I remember from the previous SC2 Beta as well. SC2 is the only game I play on Battle.Net so I don't visit the site that often or participate in any other games/betas

It's in the Account/Region dropdown menu on the Starcraft page in the Battle.Net client. Similar to how you would install the PTR for other games.
