Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void collectors edition and new features announced.

Pre-purchase is up here.

Blizzard gave some new information showing off the special editions for Starcraft 2's new expansion with some fun additional updates that are sure to make some smile. The big bonus for every edition of the game is early access to Whispers of Oblivion. For the players that also dabble in Blizzard's MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, you will be getting a character that has not yet been revealed.  If you are interested in getting all this, the standard edition of the game will only cost $39.99.

 Players looking to obtain the Digital Deluxe Edition for $59.99, you will get that as well as a few extra bonuses that will mostly affect other Blizzard Games. including:

  • Archon battle pet in World of Warcraft
  • Void Seeker mount in Heroes of the Storm
  • Protoss card pack in Hearthstone
  • Protoss-themed portraits and unit skin in StarCraft II

    For the truly dedicated fan, $79.99 will bring to you the physical and retail only collector's edition. It will include everything we've mentioned thus far, however it will come packed with a special edition of the Starcraft Field Manual. This edition will also include a DVD containing both cinematics and special features, finally expect to have the soundtrack CD as well.

  • If you still wish to obtain the manual, it will eventually be available on it's own, outside of the collector's edition.
    The big news now is that Legacy of the Void has become a stand-alone title. For those who haven't picked up the previous titles or are getting friends into it now, everyone can save a bit of money this time around. Blizzard is making a wise choice by increasing accessibility for their new expansion.

    One of the other big changes is the full asset library is going out to anyone who owns any part of the series. This is great news for modders and map makers as they will have access to everything whether they have been there from the start. or are jumping on now.

    While no release date has been announced as of yet, Blizzard is currently expecting to get the Protoss to us by this winter.

    More information is available straight from Blizzard here.
