The beta will be Windows-only and (as expected) it requires the Battle.net desktop app installed to play. In order to get the most meaningful and constructive feedback possible, the total number of players in the Closed Beta will be extremely limited, but more will be invited as new features are ready. On the other hand, the larger-scale weekends will open the gates to a lot of players so Blizzard can stress test the servers.
