SteelSeries Prepares Gamers for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty with New Gaming Gear

Alongside the July 27th launch of Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, SteelSeries is pleased to announce the release of original co-branded gaming peripherals for gamers eager to jump back into the epic struggle between the protoss, zerg and terran races.

SteelSeries will offer a complete gaming solution with the StarCraft II Limited Edition Zboard gaming keyboard bundle, which includes the SteelSeries Zboard Base with Z Engine II software, the Zboard Standard QWERTY Keyset for everyday use and the SteelSeries Limited Edition Zboard Keyset (StarCraft II). The specially designed Zboard Keyset (StarCraft II) provides labeled commands, in-game shortcuts, official artwork from the game, and three race-specific mods featuring unique abilities for each of the races. Through its unique Z Engine II software, gamers can also remap every key on the keyboard, guaranteeing a completely customized experience for each and every user.

Joining the current line of StarCraft II-branded Qck Limited Edition mouse pads, SteelSeries introduces two new products showcasing beautiful in-game artwork. The SteelSeries Limited Edition QcK Tychus Findlay and Marauder mouse pads feature images of the iconic terran marine and the terran heavy infantry unit respectively. The Qcks are made of a high-quality cloth material with an optimized textured surface, and provide players with a smooth and consistent gliding surface.

“With Blizzard Entertainment’s recent release date announcement for the highly anticipated StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, SteelSeries is excited to introduce new game-specific gear designed to offer high-quality peripheral options and a true immersive experience,” said Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO.”

And so the hyping of... my-fave-game-of-all-time begins...
sigh... they better have made the campaign good and long after killing LAN play!!:banghead:
Still, I'm quivering with anticipation. This could, but probably won't, have made a great movie. It's a shame that Hollywood tends to ruin game to movie ports...:shadedshu

Now, on subject... keyboard sux and mousepad... would be better if it was all black, lol!:laugh:

Nope -- you'll only get the Terran campaign first, followed by expansions for the zerg and protoss that you'll have to buy separately. I wish I was joking, but this is what the news was the last time I heard it. :shadedshu

yeah, that's what's happening. I've been trying to put a positive spin on it in my head, "3 releases means 3 times the fun," but then another voice says... "and 3 times the money".
Damn all these voices in my head, and Blizzard being so money hungry... :p
