Blizzard Preps StarCraft 2 Players with Campaign and Battle.net 2.0 Overview Trailers

Today--otherwise referred to as the day the video game industry decided to keep quiet as people wait in line for StarCraft II--we bring you two videos released by Blizzard over the weekend, developed to prepare players for the upcoming RTS sequel. The first trailer gives players an overview of the first chapter in the StarCraft II trilogy.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty takes place four years after StarCraft: Brood War (originally released in 1998), and brings players face-to-face with classic characters Zeratul, Arcturus Mengsk, Artanis and Sarah Kerrigan; however, the star of the game (and the campaign overview trailer) is the grizzled solider James Raynor.

There are more than a few skeletons in the veteran's closet and in his upcoming battle, the soldier has nothing to lose. The long-awaited continuation in the StarCraft series hits stores tomorrow.

A video outlining the features of Battle.net 2.0 can be found after the jump.
