StarCraft II Ship Date Confirmed

Activision Blizzard just sent over an announcement that finally... finally solidifies the actual release date of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. The hot-n-tasty sci-fi RTS for the PC is expected to arrive in stores in the USA on July 27, 2010. The game will also arrive on that same day in Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.

"The solo campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War," the PR reads. "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."

The standard version will cost $59.99 USD when it arrives on store shelves. Blizzard is also releasing a Collector's Edition for $99.99 USD which will include an exclusive 2 GB USB flash drive, the official soundtrack, exclusive downloadable content, and more.

    Forgive me if my excitement from 2008 has worn off a little. I'm still a little upset over having to buy the game 3 times and might just wait a few years out of spite and buy the battle chest for the price of one. Who am I kidding, by the time the 3rd one is released, the desktop will go away if Apple has its way.

    Congrats loyal Blizzardites, you will finally have your 1/3 day.

    I played the beta. Worth $60? isn't this kind of late for this kind of game? lol. well, will let the sheep decide. the beta got old after a couple of days and the full version isn't going to be a whole lot different. this game won't draw people away from WoW which is yet another game that gets too much praise.

    Will def get this off Steam... hope they will have the bandwidth.

    That 2GB drive could be a little more with that price premium.
