Download: StarCraft II Demo

As an early Christmas treat, Blizzard has just released a free demo for its hit sci-fi RTS game StarCraft II. If you have yet to play the game you can download this brief slice of the long awaited title which features the first three single player campaign missions from the full version. It also has two skirmish maps (Blistering Sands and Quicksand) that will let you play as the Terran faction against Terran AI opponents.

The demo comes in both PC and Mac versions and at the moment is only in English. One of the nice things about the demo is that it doesn't require an internet connection or Battle.net account to play. You can get more info on the demo at its own FAQ page.
