StarCraft II Midnight Launch Event Coming to Fry’s Electronics

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is one of the most highly anticipated sequels, and I really do mean high anticipated, because the first Starcraft game came out over a decade ago in 1998. Blizzard is such a tease. This coming Monday on July 26, be sure to come out to Fry’s Electronics at 10800 Kalama River Avenue in Fountain Valley, CA to check out the festivities starting at 9pm. Once midnight hits, the store will be ready to sell StarCraft II to all the fans waiting.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating the launch of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty with our community at the official launch event here in Southern California and at other locations worldwide,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “This is something we’ve been working toward for several years, and we’re excited to soon be able to share the results of that work with gamers around the world.”

Not only will fans be one of the first to get the game, they’ll also get a chance to meet the developers from Blizzard Entertainment who’ll be greeting fans and signing copies of the game. Blizzard is going all out with the launch event by giving the fans prize giveaways, live music, exhibition matches, and Q&A sessions with the Blizzard developers.

The game will be $59.99, but if you want the collector’s edition, it’s going to be $99.99 and includes the following:

  • The Art of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, a 176-page book featuring artwork from the game
  • An exclusive 2GB USB flash drive replica of Jim Raynor’s dog tag, which comes preloaded with the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War(R) expansion set
  • A behind-the-scenes DVD containing over an hour of developer interviews, cinematics with director’s commentary, and more
  • The official StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty soundtrack CD, containing 14 epic tracks from the game along with exclusive bonus tracks
  • StarCraft comic book issue #0, a prequel to the comic series
  • A World of Warcraft(R) mini Thor in-game pet that can be applied to all World of Warcraft characters on a single Battle.net(R) account
  • Exclusive Battle.net downloadable content, including special portraits for your Battle.net profile, decals to customize your units in-game, and a visually unique version of the terran Thor unit

Hope to see you all there!
