As of December 2010, Blizzard Entertainment has been testing upcoming patches on the public test realm before applying them.[1]

Patch 1.5

The upcoming patch 1.5 was expected to be the largest content patch ever for StarCraft II, and will prepare the way for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. It is expected to include the Arcade feature, improved custom game visibility, art tools and changes to the social interface.[2]

The patch underwent an open beta test.
