StarCraft Remastered announced for Summer 2017 release

Activision Blizzard will be releasing a remastered version of the original StarCraft game this summer.

The release reportedly features:

  • updated and enhanced graphics
  • Battle.net support
  • cloud saves
  • widescreen support up to 4K resolution
  • localization in 13 languages

The campaign will include all of the missions from the original release and the expansion pack, Brood War. The video above shows that this really is a facelift of the original game and not just a shoehorning of the old story into the StarCraft 2 game engine.

If you missed out on StarCraft 2, a new Battle Chest version is being released on March 31 (just a few days away!) containing all 3 campaigns (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void).

You can check out the press release for StarCraft Remastered after the jump.

$20 Game of the Week: Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty (PC)

wingsofliberty

For the sequel to one of the greatest real-time strategy franchises of all time, Blizzard decided to do something big and somewhat controversial: split the game into 3 parts, one for each of the three factions. Wings of Liberty deals with the Terran faction, while the recently released Heart of the Swarm deals with the Zerg. However, just because WOL deals with only one faction, it is by no means incomplete, as the tale of Jim Raynor is a story deep enough to stand on its own, and the RTS gameplay, refined over the years since the original Starcraft’s release, stands the test of time.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm opening cinematic released in HD

Blizzard has released the HD opening cinematic for StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.
In it, we are treated to an epic Zerg invasion of a Terran planet.

The game is scheduled for release on March 12, 2013. It will continue the story where it left off in the last game, StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty and will someday be completed by a third release that will be more Protoss-centric.

I, for one, am already planning the purchase of a new harddrive to contain all of excitement and gameplay that this title promises. Are you planning on picking up the game? Let us know in the comments!

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm spawning more Overlords in March 2013

The date has been set. The second installment of Starcraft 2, Heart of the Swarm will be released on March 12, 2013. All you Terrans have until that time to complete Wings of Liberty before spoilers surround you like an oncoming zerg rush.

Speaking of spoilers, here is the introductory synopsis for the game from the Blizzard website:

You are Sarah Kerrigan, former Queen of Blades. Once the most feared entity in the galaxy, you now wait in a cell in the depths of a high-security research laboratory. Before the murderous forces of the Terran Dominion close in, you must plot your escape to the dark reaches of spaceā€¦ and reclaim your living empire at the Heart of the Swarm

And to further sweeten the sauce, here is a gorgeous trailer to salivate over!

Starcraft spoofed in Korean Comedy show

Apparently some Korean television show thought it would be funny to spoof Starcraft in some sort of squabble between two of the actors/comedians. And it was.
