The hype has started for “StarCraft” players with Blizzard making the third installment in the “StarCraft 2” franchise available for pre-purchase in the battle.net store. “StarCraft 2: Legacy Of The Void” will officially be released at the end of this year or early 2016.

The game was announced during last year’s BlizzCon and is priced at $39.99 for the standard edition and $59.99 for the digital deluxe edition.

The deluxe edition comes with “three unique Protoss-inspired portraits for StarCraft 2” and a new Protoss unit skin. There’s also an Archon pet for "World of Warcraft," a Protoss-themed card back for "Hearthstone," a Probe pet and Protoss transmog for "Diablo 3" and a “Void Seeker Mount” for "Heroes of the Storm." If those extras aren’t convincing enough purchasers of the standard edition do have the option to buy the deluxe content for a reduced price.

“Guide the Protoss as they struggle to unite the three races in the ultimate battle for survival against an ancient evil threatening all life in the universe,” a description on the store says. “Experience the epic conclusion to the StarCraft 2 trilogy and find out who perseveres in the face of adversity.”

Pre-purchasing the game also gives players early access to the three-mission prologue series “Whispers of Oblivion.” Now to wait for a release date.
