The original StarCraft is going to get a make-over! Blizzard has announced that StarCraft Remastered is definitely going to be released, and fans of the franchise can get their hands on it by Summer of this year.
In a press release, Blizzard has confirmed that StarCraft Remastered will get 4K Ultra HD graphicswith widescreen support. Also getting an overhaul is its audio.
“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,” Blizzard said.
