StarCraft II will also feature a custom 3D-graphics engine with realistic physics and the ability to render several large, highly detailed units and massive armies on-screen simultaneously.

SteelSeries introduced the new StarCraft II Limited Edition ZBoard Keyset. Designed specifically for the release of Blizzard Entertainment’s highly anticipated StarCraft II, the keyset will give gamers a customized experience; it features artwork from the game and an intuitive layout, and is a tool designed to help players develop their skills.

“As one of the most anticipated games currently in development, StarCraft II is expected to capture serious attention both from those who enjoyed the classic original and from new players,” said Brian Stech, SteelSeries President of the Americas. “This Limited Edition Keyset is a valuable tool for StarCraft II players looking to immerse themselves in the game and improve their performance."

Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. The custom designed ZBoard keyset will feature labeled commands, in-game shortcuts, and artwork from the game.

The StarCraft II Limited Edition Keyset for SteelSeries Zboard gives gamers:

  • An intuitive layout for fast reactions
  • Immersion in the StarCraft universe with official game graphics

The StarCraft II Limited Edition Keyset retails for $24.99 USD and will be available at game launch; the SteelSeries Zboard retails for $49.99 USD and is available now at all major gaming retailers and etailers.

Terran commanders now train their troops to watch for these abominations. In the meantime, scientists are desperately trying to develop chemical rounds that will cause banelings to detonate before they reach terran lines.

StarCraft II will include a unique single-player campaign, as well as fast-paced online play through an upgraded version of Blizzard's renowned online gaming service, Battle.net. In addition, the game will come with a powerful, full-featured map editor that will put the same tools used by Blizzard's designers into the hands of players.
