Blizzard has just announced that the remastered version of StarCraft will be released on August 14th. In order to celebrate this announcement, Blizzard released a new live-action trailer and the first gameplay trailer for StarCraft: Remastered that can be viewed below.
StarCraft: Remastered will feature remastered graphics and audio that will bring a modern look and feel to the timeless classic, with widescreen UHD support for up to 4K resolution. Other updates will include new illustrations to enhance storytelling in the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War campaign missions; advanced matchmaking; full connectivity to Blizzard’s gaming network for social features and updates; cloud saving for campaign progress, custom maps, replays, and keybinds; support for eight new languages in addition to the original five; and more.
While these improvements will bring StarCraft to the modern era, gameplay and balance have been precisely preserved, for an experience that will feel identical to veteran players.
