ImageBlizzard has just announced that they will be offering a beta sneak peek of their upcoming expansion Heart of the Swarm.

Blizzard Entertainment will be offering a beta sneak peek of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm to attendees of the MLG Pro Circuit Spring Championship event which is hosted at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim from June 8-10.

A large number of public demo stations will allow attendees to try out the latest multiplayer build of the first expansion of Starcraft II, Heart of the Swarm.

This build will most likely differ from the one shown at Blizzcon a few months ago and will contain some of the feedback and changes that were made in the last months. If you have missed these changes check them out here.

The top players of Starcraft II from all around the world will assemble and battle for $76,000 in prize money at the Spring Championship with the first place taking a hefty $25,000. In addition to the MLG competition and Heart of the Swarm demo stations, the Anaheim event will also feature the USA national finals for Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II World Championship Series. The qualified players for the USA Nationals will fight for $30,000 in prize money as well as an invitation to the upcoming North America Continental Finals. The top finishers in that event will represent their countries at the World Championship event taking place later this year in Asia.

With two major StarCraft II eSports tournaments and the opportunity to play Heart of the Swarm in advance of the beta test, eSports fans have plenty to look forward to at the MLG Spring Championship event in Anaheim. Those who can't make it in person can still catch all the action via live streams. Additional information about the brackets, format and more will be available in the upcoming weeks and we will keep you updated as always.
