We unbox the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Collector’s Edition

Tuesday was a big day for gaming this year. We had the release of that game that rhymes with “call doubt snore” and the other title, which I was far more interested in, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. My life was ready for Aiur for sure, and to prove it, I unboxed a collector’s edition of Blizzard’s latest RTS.

Watch and be amazed as I make the box magically stand without falling over, talk rubbish, and fade to black because I, unlike Alessandro, do not keep murder weapons within arms reach…

In case you can’t watch the video, here’s all the content that comes with the Legacy of the Void Collector’s Edition:

Physical goodies

  • StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void game
  • Exclusive behind the scenes DVD & Blu-ray
  • Collector’s Edition Soundtrack
  • StarCraft Field Manual

Digital goodies

  • StarCraft II purifier unit skins and portraits
  • World of Warcraft pet archon
  • Diablo III probe pet & Protoss Transmog
  • Hearthstone Protoss-themed card back
  • Heroes of the Storm void speeder mount

As far as collector’s editions go, I am genuinely disappointed that the Legacy of the Void box didn’t come with something a little more special. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a neat little collection of goodies, but as the last instalment in the StarCraft II trilogy, I would at least expect something more than some bonus discs and an art book.

I mean, there were a ton of things that could’ve been thrown in, like probe keyring, or an Artanis figurine. What about a Pylon bedside lamp? I’m not asking for too much, am I?

Regardless, I’ve got the game all installed and ready to go on my PC. Have you been playing Legacy of the Void? I haven’t had the chance to yet myself, but that’s all changing tonight!

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

    I need to watch this, stupid work thing keeping me bizzay

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Um… you pay double the price of the regular edition and only get that? That CE can GITS.

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    In other words, in the old days, this CE would have been the RE (Regular Edition)

    I still remember my SC1 box (Terran). Flip open front with lots of inserts, full manual, Blizzard notepad (WHICH I STILL HAVE!!!) and the game. ON A CD!

      I still have that notepad floating around my father’s home! I am going to make a note of locating it on my next visit. I may put it in it’s own small glass box. =D

      Otherwise I, too, am underwhelmed by this CE. I still should pick it up, since I have the two others and would be remiss to have the matching set. Shame is, I don’t even play anymore.

    No dog peeing in this video?

    • Hammersteyn

      Matty has more class?

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        More, or less?

        • Hammersteyn

          yeah more or less

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Both!

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    Porra + bed + cheesy lounge music…..GOOD THING IT AIN’T THAT KINDA VIDEO

    • Hammersteyn

      Portal 2! I thought his shirts said Porra 2

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Great birthday present for porra gamer friends.

        XD

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    Ok the book is pretty cool

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    So full game on DVD with no day one downloads?

    • Kenn Gibson

      i had to do a 4gb update after putting my game code into battle.net

      • Johann

        Same here, but I had pre-loaded mine in the background so it just scanned the 4GB and downloaded the last 100mb or so.

    • VampyreSquirrel

      It’s Blizzard… so probably not.

  • Desertwhale

    Very lame how these developers think that “digital goodies” are more impressive to us than physical goodies. I remember opening the original Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty Collectors Edition and I got a comicbook, an art book, the making of dvd, soundtrack, and the Jim Raynor 2GB USB drive with the original Starcraft and Broodwar included on it that lit up while plugged in. No digital BS. Just real cool stuff. Fast forward to the day and age where millennial idiots drop money on micro-transactions and digital stuff, and sadly its becoming the norm. I miss the good ole days of gaming :-/
