StarCraft II, Battle.net head to China
Local experts NetEase are partnering with Blizzard to deliver StarCraft II, and Blizzard's Battle.net multiplayer service, to China.
Alongside the big-hitting online service, and Blizzard's new RTS game, classic hits from the developer including Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne will also be released in the People's Republic.
The new deal will kick-off following StarCraft II's as-yet unknown release, and will run for three years.
"NetEase has been a leader in the Chinese game market, and we look forward to working with them to deliver high-quality entertainment to Chinese gamers," beamed Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime.
