StarCraft II is the long-awaited sequel to the original StarCraft, Blizzard Entertainment’s critically acclaimed sci-fi real-time strategy game. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is both a challenging single-player game and a fast-paced multiplayer game, and it also taps into Battle.net – Blizzard Entertainment’s fully-featured online gaming service.
In typical real-time strategy games, players build armies and vie for control of the battlefield. The armies in play can be as small as a single squad of Marines or as large as a full-blown planetary invasion force. As commander, you observe the battlefield from a top-down perspective and issue orders to your units in real time. Strategic thinking is key to success; you need to gather information about your opponents, anticipate their moves, outflank their attacks, and formulate a winning strategy.
Starcraft II Key Features
Choose Your Race - StarCraft II features three distinct ’races’ whose armies comprise entirely unique units and structures. Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, and knowing their tactical profiles can mean the difference between glorious victory or crushing defeat. Play as Terrans, Protoss, or Zerg!
Intense Multiplayer - The Blizzard app is your gateway to playing Blizzard games online. The StarCraft II multiplayer mode puts your skills to the ultimate test as you battle against (or alongside) human players on leagues and ladders. Powered by an advanced automated matchmaking system, ranked matches will pit you against players who are near your skill level, so you will always find a fair challenge. And if you want to take a break from competitive ranked games, you can also try more relaxed custom games.
Immersive Single Player - Launch the Single-Player Campaign to continue the story where StarCraft: Brood War left off. Lead Raynor’s Raiders through an epic campaign and unravel the story of a universe on the brink of destruction. You can also play custom single-player games against the computer if you just want to practice.
