HoTS beta key with Amazon pre-order

#1FakeTJPosted 11/13/2012 9:19:56 AM(edited)
If you want a beta key for HoTS apparently you get one after pre-ordering HoTS from amazon. I'm guessing you can cancel your pre-order after getting the key too. :-P

Don't hold me to the cancel though. I don't know if that works.

Do you have to own WOL to get HOTS? Or is it a stand alone? I want to get my friend into Starcraft but money is an issue for him.

Yeah you should be able to cancel. I've been getting beta/early access keys from amazon like this for a while.

You do need WOL. I believe it will be $40 for just HOTS and $60 for both however, so perhaps that may make it easier for him to jump in.
