    STARCRAFT® II: WINGS OF LIBERTY™ IN STORES STARTING JULY 27, 2010

    IRVINE, Calif. – May 3, 2010 – Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. announced today that its highly anticipated real-time strategy game, StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty™, will arrive in stores throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau starting on July 27, 2010. Players will also be able to purchase StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty directly from Blizzard Entertainment shortly after the retail launch.

    "We've been looking forward to revisiting the StarCraft universe for many years, and we're excited that the time for that is almost here," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Thanks to our beta testers, we're making great progress on the final stages of development, and we'll be ready to welcome players all over the world to StarCraft II and the new Battle.net® in just a few months."

    StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. Sporting a vibrant 3D-graphics engine, StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying legions of veteran, upgraded, and new unit types. Unparalleled online play for StarCraft II will be available through a new version of Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment's world-renowned gaming service. Battle.net has been redesigned from the ground up to be the premier online gaming destination for Blizzard gamers, with several enhancements and new features, such as voice communication, cloud file storage, leagues and ladders, achievements, stat-tracking, and more.

    The solo campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War®. The story line chronicles the exploits of marshal-turned-rebel-leader Jim Raynor and features both familiar faces and new heroes. Players will be able to tailor the experience, choosing their own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades to suit their playing style throughout the 29-mission campaign. Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals designed to ease players into the basics of multiplayer strategies.

    I've been waiting years for this.


    however i don't like that they are releasing it as a trilogy this time...but that's how it is these days...any way to make more money.

      Game is unreal i've heard. I'm glad it's being released in the summer when I don't have finals.

          Lucky for you, its release date is toward the end of summer. You'll have over a month to enjoy the summer doing other things. The rest of the summer, you can play SCII.

              Just an FYI, if you want the Beta for SC 2 all you have to do is to to Gamestop and pre-order the game.

                I got to play the Alpha first-hand at Blizzcon '07 (I have ALOT of stories to tell, pics, merchandise etc if anyone wants to "call me out" ) and Zerg was NOT available at the time (as I said it was only the Alpha) and I had NEVER played any Blizzard game before this Alpha besides Warcraft 1 & 2 and Diablo 1, and I gotta say AFTER we got home, and THEN i played Starcraft 1, I was disappointed that the Alpha I played was already SO MUCH BETTER than the first... and since have found a love for the first.

                I do gotta admit though I felt VERY out of place with all the WoW nerds as I had never played that game and the whole thing was about some expansion to that gmae or whatever... since then I have tried WoW... not my cup of tea... found it quite boring.

                Starcraft II is going to ROCK! (I'll only be buying the Terran campaign, b/c if I can't nuke something, I get bored, which explains why I love C&C so much )

                    I don't like the SC style of RTS. I prefer Civilization

                    Maybe now that they're done with this they can hurry up and release Diablo 3

                        I can wait until Diablo 3 is released.

                        Does it come out 2011 or 2012?
