WIN! StarCraft II Beta Access And Swag

WIN! StarCraft II Beta Access And Swag

Blizzard has kindly handed us five slots in the StarCraft II beta – plus a whole heap of StarCraft related swag – to give away. And that’s precisely what we’re going to do now.

Beta access? Yes. Five strategically minded Kotaku readers will shortly find themselves beta testing what is surely the biggest PC release of the year.

And one of those five will also win all this swag, rushed to their door at the tap of a keyboard shortcut:

* StarCraft II Raynor n00bz figure * Starcraft II Marine T-shirt featuring art by Scrojo * StarCraft ‘Frontlines’ Vol. 1 manga from TokyoPop/Madman * StarCraft ‘Ghost Academy’ Vol. 1 manga from TokyoPop/Madman * StarCraft II ‘Terran Ghost’ poster featuring art by Wei Wang * StarCraft II Zergling Coloisonné pin * I bid on an online auction. Instead, we want to see your battle plan.

You must send us a map showing your mission objective – that is, the StarCraft II Beta Access and Swag – and the strategy you’re going to undertake in order to secure it. The most creative, wittiest and cleverest entries will win.

Send your plan in jpeg format to the usual address by midnight Sunday, April 25. No multiple entries are allowed and you must supply your account name, postal address and contact number.

Good luck!

[Terms and Conditions]


  • I know this picture has done the rounds already, but I’ve just realised that he’s smoking in a space helmet, which is crazy by itself, but the smoke is also exiting the helmet.
    I guess he could be on a planet…
    Ok nevermind.

    • The image is from the original teaser trailer. He has just been released from prison to be suited up (presumably in a barraks? And quite obviously with gravity). The teaser ends with that shot, him smoking a cigar and saying “Hell. It’s about time”. Then, admittadly, the visor for his helmet closes with the cigar inside.

  • While your post states that the competition finishes midnight tonight the terms and conditions state otherwise. According to them the competition ends 11:59AM AEST which would be a minute before midDAY rather than midNIGHT.

    Just thought I’d point that out..
