Starcraft 2 Pre-Orders near 1 Million

Starcraft 2. A sequel to one of the most popular PC games in existence and it comes out tomorrow. The release of the latest Real Time Strategy installment in the Starcraft series from Blizzard is widely anticipated and the numbers are there to prove it. According to VGChartz Starcraft 2 has hit 800,000 pre-orders, just shy of the one million mark. This is quite a record since the game only comes out on one system, PC, while other games usually have multiple console iterations to buffer their numbers.

Earlier this week it was announced that the UK would be getting midnight release parties and if the Facebook posts are to be believed, everyone over there is ready for it and having a good time. Starcraft 2 will be releasing in three parts, one for each race in the game, with Wings of Liberty, the Terran race, making it’s debut on the 27th of this month. If you haven’t been following the hype check out the mind blowing trailer for the game below. Make sure you watch in HD and fullscreen, trust me, you’ll thank me.
