StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty release date announced!
Something a bit different, but I am glad to know that the highly anticipated RTS game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty has a release date now: 27th July 2010 ^^
For those who are not so familiar with the game, it is the sequel of the 1998 PC game by Blizzard, featuring 3 different races Terran (the humans), Protoss (high-tech humanoids), and the Zerg (aliens). StarCraft II will take place approximately 4 years after the original game, and singleplayer will be split to 3 different games. The first one to come out is for the Terran campaign called Wings of Liberty. Singpleplayer campaigns for Zerg and Protoss will come at later dates (yet to be confirmed) as seperate games, but the multiplayer will still be the same.
The singleplayer will be a bit different to the multiplayer part of the game. For example a number of old units from the first game will make appearance again in the singleplayer as playable units, and are not available in multiplayer.
Wings of Liberty will be released simultaneously in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.

Oh yeah~ I would love to get my hands on the game when it comes in Hong Kong! Even though I suck at the original game, I still love it and I enjoyed making singpleplayer missions with the campaign/map editor back in the earlier years. It was one of my first PC games that I have seriously played back then, and it still is considered a classic among a lot of us, gamers or not. Hell, even my sister knows what Zerg is (laughs).
Must buy a proper desktop for gaming purposes once the summer starts~ I am definitely looking forward to it! ^^
