If there has ever been one solid RTS title in gaming history it has to be StarCraft. I know it was one of my favorites for so very long even with all of the other titles that Blizzard has given us over the past nearly two decades. It was one of the games that locked me firmly into the PC gaming world and now it looks like it is going to do it again. Sadly, this isn't an announcement for a sequel, but we are getting StarCraft Remastered now and all of the glory that can bring with it. Time to brush off some of those old rushing skills to get ready to attack and defend my way through the universe yet again.
Given that this is only the announcement for StarCraft Remastered, the finer details are still pretty sparse. What is known is that all of the games visuals have been updated to look amazing on a new 4K display and that we are going to be getting all of the same old campaign that we all loved before. All of that and that we can look to be playing StarCraft even more competitively sometime this Summer. It would have made sense to see Brood War also mixed into this announcement, but as of now it is only the core game. All enough to get us hyped that all of the other rumored projects in the StarCraft universe may see the light of day at some point.
For now we have the announcement trailer for StarCraft Remastered. I'm going to venture a guess that we'll see more of it at the coming events and conventions even though it all looks to handle the same way only with nicer graphics. Maybe there are a few little hidden things in there too, but for now nothing beyond that has been mentioned. Now we just sit and wait.
StarCraft Remastered — Announcement
StarCraft introduced many revolutionary new features that have since become staples of the real-time strategy genre: asymmetric factions, meticulous balance, and a strong emphasis on deep strategy and high accessibility. After more than ten years, StarCraft continues to headline gaming tournaments worldwide.
