Midnight opening for StarCraft II

"For the Horde!" Wait...

GAME on Oxford Street, London, will open at midnight on 26th July for the release of Blizzard's science fiction real-time strategy game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Doors open at 11pm. We recommend getting there early. Like, go now.

Lead software engineer Carl Chimes will be signing copies of the game for you to treasure for the rest of your lives.

The lovely people at Blizzard plan exclusive giveaways and prizes. The Collector's Edition, which includes a 176-page art book, the soundtrack CD, a 2GB USB flash drive preloaded with the original StarCraft & StarCraft: Brood War expansion, a behind-the-scenes DVD, a StarCraft II comic book, and an exclusive World of Warcraft mini Thor in-game pet, will also be there, just gagging to be bought.

Wondering what all the fuss is about? Eurogamer went hands-on in May. Just don't mention Real ID.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
