Did You Preorder HOTS? Welcome To The Beta

Merry Christmas and happy new year, Blizzard game lovers. As you know, in March, 2013 the long awaited Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm is finally coming out. So far access has been limited solely to those people accepted into the closed beta. The beta is about to get far less closed, as Blizzard has announced than anyone who pre-ordered the expansion prior to December 19th will be granted access.

Does that describe you? If so, head over and grab the client now. Alas, it doesn’t describe me, so I’ll be waiting to find out if the launch is as successful as Diablo 3. Zing.

did we pre-oder ? very good question, should we pay 65$ for about 6 new units ? i barely ever played the campain, so this “expansion” isisnt worth it, in the old days expansions didint cost the full game price. now these days they try to make the biggest buck out of evrey little things, even if its not worth it. too bad ima have to skip on this one, thx to blizzard avidity for money.

Blizzard explained a long time ago that these are not expansion but full games, that is why the development has been taking so long, instead of doing a single game with only a couple missions for the three races they decided to do a longer story with a large campaign for the marines.

Its the same for this next one, you’ll find just as much content to keep you busy as you did in the first so that is why.

As for Max it would be a bad deal since he didn’t care about the campaign to begin with.

The only Starcraft related product i ever purchased is the amazing Kerrigan action figure from DC unlimited.
