Starcraft 2 Splits Into Three Games

For those who don't know, the annual Blizzcon is in full swing as we speak. Today Blizzard came out with another big Starcraft-related announcement, Starcraft 2 will be split into three campaigns from three different points of view.

Gamespy has the breakdown of each game:
"The first game available will contain the Terran campaign, Wings of Liberty, along with a mini-campaign featuring the Protoss hero Zeratul. The second product will focus on Kerrigan and the Zerg and be called Heart of the Swarm. The final product is about the Protoss and is titled Legacy of the Void. Pardo was quick to reassure the crowd that this applied to single-player only and that the multiplayer portion would ship complete with all three races playable."

It was mentioned that the two games following the initial release of SC2 should be viewed as expansions, no word on the cost differences.
