Blizzard has revealed its midnight launch plans for popular real-time strategy sequel StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. PC gamers are apparently quite excited!
So excited, in fact, they'll be heading down to EB Games Albert Street store in the centre of Brisbane for the official Australian launch event.
Proceedings kick off at 9.30pm on July 26 when StarCraft fans will doubtlessly thrill to the prospect of winning:
* the StarCraft trivia contest where you'll be tested on all manner of Zerg, Protoss and Terran history; * the StarCraft sound-a-like contest where you'll perform your best unit impersonations; * or the StarCraft cosplay contest where you'll try manfully to smoke a cigar.
Bliizard promises there'll be thousands of dollars of prizes to be won including gear from AMD, Razer, SteelSeries and lots of official Blizzard merchandise. There's also a live Q&A with StarCraft II producer Kaeo Milker.
While Brisbane will host the official launch, other EB stores around the country will be open on the evening of July 26 and, according to Blizzard, many of them will also be running special competitions and giveaways. So call your local store and find out what they're planning.
