Blizzard Remastered The OriIginal ‘STARCRAFT’ So You Can Game Like it’s 1998
Well that was unexpected.
StarCraft is coming back. Not as a sequel or as yet another expansion for StarCraft II. Instead, Blizzard Entertainment is cooking up a remaster of the 1998 original, with a spruced up 4K resolution sheen and an assortment of modern contrivances aimed at making it easier to play a 20-year-old game in 2017.
The re-release, titled StarCraft Remastered, will launch this summer. Functionally, it’s meant to be the game you remember — none of the rules, mechanics, or any of the stuff that made StarCraft the gold standard of the real-time strategy genre will change.
It’s just going to look better. And sound better. In addition to a new coat of 4K-friendly textures — effectively, sharper versions of the original game’s art with a wider range of supported aspect ratios — all the dialogue and music has been re-recorded.
For story devotees, StarCraft Remastered will also feature comic book-style interludes that put an eye-catching new spin on the 1998 game’s Terrans vs. Protoss vs. Zerg royal rumble.
