    Blizzard Announces Starcraft II

    StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival.
    Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard will again offer unparalleled online play through Battle.net, the company's world-renowned gaming service, with several enhancements and new features to make StarCraft II the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game.

    Features:
    Fast-paced, hard-hitting, tightly balanced competitive real-time strategy gameplay that recaptures and improves on the magic of the original game

    Three completely distinct races: Protoss, Terran, and Zerg

    New units and gameplay mechanics further distinguish each race



    Groundbreaking single-player "story-mode" campaign

    Vibrant new 3D-graphics engine with support for dazzling visual effects and massive unit and army sizes

    Full multiplayer support, with new competitive features and matchmaking utilities available through Battle.net

    Full map-making and scripting tools to give players incredible freedom in customizing and personalizing their gameplay experience

    Re: Blizzard Announces Startcraft II

    Well too bad..I really hoped for a Diablo III. Starcraft I is still very very popular so I don't understand why they make a sequel to it. I don't Blizzard will manage it to beat the first Starcraft, but we'll see...

    Judging by the screenshots I have seen, the biggest difference is the graphics.

    At this point, it's too early to provide an initial estimate on the release date. As with all Blizzard games, we will take as much time as needed to ensure the game is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible.
