StarCraft Remastered collects the original title and Brood War, adding over 50 missions while refining various aspects of the game in the visual and audio department. StarCraft Remastered features 4K UHD graphics, new race-specific comic book interludes that tell the narrative of the game, and re-recordings of the game’s original dialogue and soundtrack. StarCraft Remastered will also allow for online play through Blizzard Friends lists and matchmaking. The only thing that remains untouched is the gameplay.

StarCraft Remastered will launch in the Summer. More information, including side-by-side comparisons of the original title and the remaster, can be found on the official website. A trailer for the announcement can also be seen below.

Our Thoughts

If ever there was a game that deserved a fresh coat of paint, it’s StarCraft. This is easily the most important RTS in the genre’s history, and the fact that Blizzard is keeping the remaster strictly limited to the visual and online features side without touching the gameplay is huge. We are definitely looking forward to this one!
