Have you been waiting patiently to get this expansion, or have you just picked up Wings of Liberty and are chomping at the bit to get the Heart of the Swarm? Get it for less from my close, personal friends Amazon Canada and Blizzard!
I thought this deal was a price drop when I first saw it, so I looked around other places and everyone else is still selling it at $39.99. This is a legitimate deal, and I don’t know how long it’s going to last. StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is $39.99 everywhere, but Amazon is giving you a $10 break and selling it for $29.99. Shipping is free.
Heart of the Swarm is the second in a planned trilogy of StarCraft 2 games, and from all the chatter my StarCraft 2 playing friends were babbling on about when it was released, it’s pretty awesome. It has a bunch of new missions, some new units and a story that focuses on the Zerg race. This is, of course, an expansion and as such will require the first game in the StarCraft 2 trilogy.
I haven’t played StarCraft 2 yet but I’ve played tons of StarCraft and Brood Wars, and I wouldn’t expect Blizzard to put out a game any less awesome. Indeed, from the enthusiasm that my friends show over it, it seems very well received. I absolutely adore RTS’ and Blizzard has some of the classics (Warcraft 2, StarCraft) in their resume. It takes a special team to understand the RTS genre and the guys at Blizzard know what they are doing.
