StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will arrive with “little surprise”

Good news for fans of StarCraft. The interminable wait until the game launches this year (if it comes out this year) will be exactly equal to endless after this news. Well, I lie, it will be a little more interminable. And is that Blizzard has decided to give a little surprise with the release of the game.

Wings of Liberty, as it is called the first episode of StarCraft II (which as you know it is the Terran campaign will include a small mini-campaign history autoconclusiva independent of what will be the second episode of StarCraft II campaign Protoss.

Of course, this minicampaigns not be unleashing the full power of the Protoss or may be used with all units. So that we understand will be a “demo long” whose sole objective will be to open your mouth to imagine fans of this race.

Personally, I think a very good initiative and I hope to do the same with the Zerg see the light once the second episode of this highly anticipated game. Although what I also hope that the next news is that you post on this saga is the release date. Cross your fingers.
