Korean Air embraces StarCraft II [UPDATE]
Posted: 25.06.2010 12:28 by Simon Priest Comments: 5
Blizzard and Korean Air have teamed up in marketing to help promote StarCraft: Wings of Liberty in South Korea as airplanes get a makeover.

Domestic and international flights may notice a giant Jim Raynor on their jumbo, and will do for 6 months to come. Blizz have 'Professional Edition'.

The Korean Air planes with character Jim Raynor plastered near their tail began flights domestically yesterday, June 24th. International to the US and Europe will start early July - and there's no way you could miss these flying billboards.

Editor's Note: Due to the Deputy Editor spending too long with his nom noms today, he didn't manage to catch the fact that the information regarding LAN support for Starcraft II and the rumoured 'Professional Edition' is actually false. This story has been edited accordingly, and we apologise for the confusion.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty releases exclusively on PC July 27th.
