    Just a minor detail. HotS is more of an expansion than just DLC. Considering it includes an entire single player campaign, several new cosmetic potraits, and decals. And a completely revamped multiplayer :P

    I just learned via reddit, that if you preorder through Amazon you get a beta key, as long as they’re in stock.
