Ya heard? StarCraft II is being divided into three parts. StarCraft II is now a trilogy! This certainly doesn’t sound very Blizzard-like. In fact, it sounds like a move to get the game out faster while milking it for all its worth. Here are the names of the three campaigns:
- Terrans: Wings of Liberty
- Zerg: Heart of the Swarm
- Protoss: Legacy of the Void
We are assured that parts two and three of the trilogy will act like standalone expansions with enough content to justify the cost. They’ve even said that each campaign will be very different from one another.
Sure. I’ll believe it when I see it.
I’m guessing this setup will be similar to the Company of Heroes where you’re given both the Axis and Allies to play with, but only the Allies had a single player campaign. So all the multiplayer fanatics will simply purchase the Terran campaign and be happy with all three races in the box. Cool, hmm?
I wonder how much these expansions are going to cost. I’m assuming the Terrans campaign will serve as the full retail title with a $49.99 CAD price tag to match it. Is it safe to assume the expansions will be $29.99 CAD each? $110 CAD for the entire StarCraft II story? That’s just mean. They know there are folks out there who will fork that amount over.
I’m one of them.
