'Starcraft II Special Edition' Will Set You Back $100

‘Starcraft II Special Edition’ Will Set You Back $100

While the world has no idea when Blizzard’s highly anticipated follow-up to Starcraft will be released, somehow the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty Collector’s Edition has already been priced. According to Kotaku, the set will cost you a hefty $100.

Why one hundred smackaroos? This box set will include an art book packed with illustrations and concept art, a 2GB USB flash drive replica of Jim Raynor’s dog tag loaded with the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War expansion, a behind-the-scenes DVD, and a 14-track soundtrack CD.

But the most interesting inclusion to the special edition is a mini-Thor in-game World of Warcraft pet. Blizzard must be counting on us Warcraft players to switch over to StarCraft II while we wait impatiently for the next WoW expansion, Cataclysm. Those just waiting with baited breath for StarCraft II:Wings of Liberty can pick up the game for $60.

We’ll be bringing you the latest StarCraft II news, including its release date, in the coming weeks.

    After I got my free beta key from http://www.gamebetakeys.com/starcraft2/ I decided I would pre-order the game. I love the game and preordered it from Newegg but NO. . . I won’t spring for the $99 version. As much as I loved the original Starcraft, I just don’t see where this one merits that kinda cash. . . Sorry, Blizzard!
