NEWS – On the 26th of March, Blizzard Entertainment announced the upcoming released of a remastered version for their old RTS classic, Starcraft, and its expansion, Starcraft: Brood War.
Starcraft was released back in 1998 and it was received quite well.
Blizzard Entertainment re-defined the modern real-time strategy with Starcraft, and its expansion, Brood War. It became the standard of all modern real-time strategy games that we are currently playing now.
The game showed off a wonderful and exciting story-line through its single-player campaign in the stories of the Terrans, the Zerg, and the Protoss. It was basically an epic space opera filled with action, fantasy and drama. A story that was so complex and defined, two main games and a expansion pack was not enough to cover the entirety of its universe to the fullest.
It also paved the way for eSports. Without this game, the culture of online competitive gaming and eSports itself would not have been properly recognized and defined by the entire world.
Now, Blizzard Entertainment relives the glory of this RTS classic by giving it a remaster.
In this remastered version, Starcraft will have improvements to its graphics – an high definition remaster. Each unit has been improved to look even more detailed. Those tiny pixels we see in the original classic will be much more defined and detailed in this remaster.
The briefing scenes we usually see before we start a new single-player campaign mission has been improved.
The original Starcraft soundtrack and dialogue has been remastered and rejuvenated.
To top it all off, Starcraft: Remastered will be free-to-play, and that includes single-player and multiplayer.
The gameplay will still be the same: derpy Dragoons, terrible A.I. pathing – you name it. Blizzard Entertainment will only be tweaking the graphics and audio.
Rejoice, Starcraft fans!
