The upcoming weekend is a big one for StarCraft
fans: The United States Nationals
of the StarCraft II World Championship
is taking place at the MLG Spring Championship
all weekend long. For those of you not interested the e-sports scene, there's another event coinciding with this one: The Heart of the Swarm
press event is taking place this weekend, and an early build of the upcoming expansion is playable at demo stations on the MLG floor. Heart of the Swarm
isn't officially in the beta phase yet, so this will be the first time players have an opportunity to see the expansion first-hand.
To celebrate both the Nationals and the Heart of the Swarm
preview, Blizzard has put StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty on sale for the weekend
. Blizzard has taken 33% off of the standard box price of $59.99, bringing the price down to $39.99.
Check Battle.net for further information on this weekend's events
as well as a pair of video previews
of Heart of the Swarm.
