StarCraft has been hailed as one of the most important RTS game ever made and now Blizzard is going to remaster this timeless classic for a new generation of gamers.
StarCraft: Remastered is an HD upgrade of the original classic along with the Brood War expansion that will feature 4K graphics along with enhanced audio and Battle.net support. Despite all the new changes, fans will be happy to know that the gameplay will remain the same.
Senior producer Pete Stilwell stated to PC Gamer that,
“We decided this was going to be our love letter to the SC diehards. So while the team dusted off the repos, rebuilt the pipeline, and rediscovered the codebase, we also spent hundreds of hours connecting with passionate and proactive folks all over the globe.”
The best part is StarCraft: Remastered will be released this summer and will be available for free for all fans. This would be perfect for RTS gamers who missed out on the original classic but still admire the work of Blizzard.
A quick recap of the original game, StarCraft was released in 1998 for the PC and was highly praised by the community. It raised the bar for RTS titles of the time and became the most popular title in the genre. Its success was followed by a sequel that was released in 2010 while a spin-off was in the works before it was canceled.
