Somehow I reported this news on my Diablo 3 site but not here.
Well, if you’re living on the Moon, yes, Starcraft 2 has it’s official release date set at 27 July 2010.
Now, this will only include the Terran campaign (as far as I know). You’ll have to pay separate for the Zerg and Protoss campaigns and I bet they’ll make it so that you have to buy them in order to have a NORMAL multiplayer experience.
The good news is I’ve played the Starcraft 2 beta and it looks like an amazing game. It improves greatly on Starcraft, it’s a lot more dynamic and diverse.
One of the more interesting features is the new Battle.net. The rankings, the leagues, and different rewards stimulate a “one more game” mentality.
I would write more but really the beta ends this month so boy oh boy, I need to return to play more games as random. This is really excellent practice.
The really sad part is that I’ve played over 100 games as Protoss but when I play as random, I only lose big time if I play Protoss. Go figure!
