Tweets reveal Microsoft plans to launch Office 2013 in New York

Office 2013 is set to arrive tomorrow, after a series of tweets from Microsoft.

Microsoft had previously said its latest Office suite would arrive at the beginning of the year, and is pushing its arrival via a series of "Countdown to 365" messages - referencing its subscription version of Office, which is set for a major update alongside the release of Office 2013.

Office 2013 has been finished for some time - it reached RTM status in October, and some enterprise customers already have the software.

However, UK prices have yet to be officially revealed. A leak last week suggested UK customers will pay £110 for a copy of Office 2013 Home and Student, or £80 for a full-year subscription covering five PCs for the equivalent version of Office 365.

Any customers who has bought Office 2010 since October will receive the new edition for free, Microsoft has said.
