Gamers can now test the Starcraft 2 on their own speed with its new Starter Edition.

The demo version of Starcraft 2 enables players to test the entire game in a limited time, and forces them to avail the title in order to continue. However, Blizzard recently replaced the timed demo with the Starter Edition.

The Starter Edition does not have a time limit, letting gamers try Starcraft 2 in their own volition. Furthermore, all achievements and campaign progress earned during the demo will be available to the full game upon purchase, since the information will be stored in a gamer’s Battlenet.com account.

The Starter Edition comes prior to the second part of Starcraft 2’s trilogy – the Heart of Swarm – which is expected for a mid-2012 release.

StarCraft II, Coming this July 27

At long last! The wait is finally over. StarCraft II will be out in the market on July 27, 2010.

Wings of Liberty is the first of the three chapters set for StarCraft 2. The first chapter will focus on the Terran Race, while Heart of Swarm and Legacy of the Vold will focus on the Zerg and Protoss races. These chapters will be released separately at a later time. Wings of Liberty also features a full map-making and scripting tool set.

But one lack feature of this game is the absence of LAN support. Gamers can no longer connect with their buddies like they used to do on their local area network. You need to have an Internet connection and use Blizzard’s Battle.net system. This is not the first game to do such thing, but it is still disappointing especially to the “LAN Partiers”. Just hope that the ISP don’t have any issues with Blizzard or LAN will be dead meat.
