StarCraft: Remastered Unveiled

Blizzard announced today that their seminal real-time strategy title will be getting the ultra HD treatment. StarCraft: Remastered will feature updated 4K visuals, sharper audio, as well as competitive features like matchmaking and a ranked ladder.

“StarCraft is a pure distillation of Blizzard’s DNA—its story, its balance, and all the little details reflect our long-running commitment to epic entertainment, and it’s been a staple in competitive gaming and esports for almost 20 years,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “With StarCraft: Remastered, we’re modernising the original game’s visuals, audio, and online support to ensure that players can enjoy StarCraft for another 20 years and beyond.”

Other features include:

  • New illustrations to enhanced storytelling in the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War campaign missions
  • Custom maps
  • Replays

StarCraft: Remastered is set to release on PC and Mac this winter. Pricing to be announced later.

Being a pretty big fan of Blizzard games having played most (even The Lost Vikings!), I have actually never played the original Starcraft - this will give me a good excuse to finally play through it!

Also worth nothing that they're going to release the original Brood War for free, and release a new patch for it.

I wish EA would do the same with the old Command & Conquer games.

I saw someone said they wanted a remaster of this,
Now we Just need a Warcraft 4, Warcraft 3 is still alive and has made a lot of great games, Dota 2 Town of Salem, The red Solstice and many others.

And every Pudge you see comes from the Warcraft Universe.

Blizzard themselves said something about reviving their old games in an interview a couple years back, they started with patching old games to work better on newer systems.

I'd love a Diablo II Remaster!
