The game that changed the real time strategy scene in the late ‘90s is getting a much needed makeover.
Blizzard, a company known to take its time before it releases its games announced in a surprise move over the weekend that they’re going to launch a remastered version of StarCraft this summer.
StarCraft: Remastered boasts 4K graphics while retaining its classic campaign and gameplay that everyone grew to love since it was launched in 1998. Players can also battle it out over good old LAN or through Blizzard’s online network.
“We’ve remastered our units, buildings, and environments, improved game audio, and broadened our supported resolutions. Illustrated interludes bring the struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged,” Blizzard said in a statement.
StarCraft: Remastered will include the original game as well as the StarCraft: Brood War expansion which introduced us to new units like the Terran Medic, Zerg Lurker, and Protoss Dark Templar.
