I like to imagine that shortly after concluding the StarCraft II story with Legacy of the Void, Blizzard held an important meeting to decide what they should do next. At some point, someone chimed in with a cry of “we must construct additional remakes!” The goof was so well-received that Blizzard immediately began work on StarCraft Remastered, which has now been announced and aims to bring some modern refinements to the legendary RTS.
StarCraft Remastered is essentially the same game from 1998, but jazzed up with improved 4K visuals and re-recorded audio. Besides looking and sounding better overall, there’ll be new comic book-style mission briefings and the ability to zoom the camera. Blizzard is leaving the gameplay unchanged, which may reel competitive players back in. The remaster will include the Brood War expansion and offer LAN support, in case you want to (LAN) party like it’s 1998.
StarCraft Remasteredis set to launch this winter. Hopefully, Blizzard will turn their attention to WarCraft after this.
