We've also been advised by Blizzard that there's a new StarCraft II TV spot out, which you can view on Blizzard's Starcraft II YouTube channel. The thirty-second spot features voice-overs from two iconic characters in StarCraft II, and is cut from the pre-rendered cinematic sequences found throughout the game.
