StarCraft: Remastered announced

Blizzard is set to resurrect the classic strategy game

Posted on

One of the most popular strategy games ever is getting a re-release. Blizzard Entertainment today unveiled StarCraft: Remastered, a modernization of the original real-time strategy game.

StarCraft: Remastered promises a full graphical overhaul of the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War expansion, while preserving the gameplay that captivated millions of gamers around the world and served as the foundation for professional global esports.

The remastered graphics and audio will bring a modern look and feel to the game, with widescreen UHD support for up to 4K resolution. Other updates will include new illustrations to enhance storytelling in the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War campaign missions; advanced matchmaking; full connectivity to Blizzard’s gaming network for social features and updates; cloud saving for campaign progress, custom maps, replays, and keybinds; support for eight new languages in addition to the original five; and more.

Despite these changes, Blizzard says gameplay and balance have been precisely preserved, for an experience that will feel identical to veteran players.

In preparation for StarCraft: Remastered, Blizzard Entertainment will update StarCraft: Brood War later this week to version 1.18. The update will include bug fixes and improvements, including the ability to rebind keys; observer mode; modern anti-cheat measures; compatibility improvements for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10; and more. Once the update is live, StarCraft Anthology, which includes the original game and the Brood War expansion, will be free to download and play.

Blizzard is developing StarCraft: Remastered for release on Windows and Mac PCs, with an anticipated release date this summer. Pricing and related information will be announced at a later date.
