In an earth-shatteringly epic WTF that’s sure to have gamers everywhere in an upheaval, Blizzard just announced that Starcraft II’s campaign is so huge, it’s got to be split into three games!
Three games that you get to pay for! So if you want to see the full story, get ready to spend $180 instead of just the original $60.
Game Uno focuses on the Terrans and is called Terrans: Wings of Liberty. Game Two centers around the Zerg and is titled Zerg: Heart of the Swarm, while Game Three, Protoss: Legacy of the Void focuses on the last of the races.
While I understand that this is just how business goes, Blizzard’s PR really could have handled this better. Instead of saying “screw you guys, we split one product into three”, they could have said “Starcraft II will feature two huge awesome expansion titles”.
While it’s cool that they’ve got that much content, it’s more than a little disconcerting to see it drop like this. So what do you guys think? Is this new one-game-trilogy something to get upset or excited over?
I suppose it’s a question of what would you rather have… one scaled back version of the three campaigns for $60, or one huge story split across three games for $180?
