Starcraft 2. Its official

Been a loong break since the first one. I think every blizzard fan just spooged over their keyboards. Heres a link to screenshots cause they're big and I cant be bothered posting big screens

Heres a link to a quick intro CG trailer, and while it doesnt have heaps of exciting stuff happening, its still world class CG as always from Blizzard with brilliant lighting and detail.

Here is a link to the official site with a faq and a bunch of questions that talk about the upcoming game.

http://www.starcraft2.com/faq.xml

And finally here is an ingame trailer. Even though its not anyone playing, it shows some of the units in the game engine battling it out and a lovely explosion near the end so you know what to expect in terms of graphics. Looks quite nice. Definately cant wait to play it.

Looks sweet, has a hint of warcraft 3 style and starcraft combined.

Oh thank fucking christ it's an RTS. I honestly didn't think there was a chance in hell of them releasing one with all the hype around WOW. I am super psyched now.

This looks awesome, I've been waiting for this for a long time. If this requires an upgrade to my computer, I'll do it.

I still feel that they should add in a extra race. But oh well, Maybe in their far-from now sequel.

The games actually really far along, its been in development since 2003.

Also the games multiplayer is already fully playable.

the faq says its too far before release to tell when it's actually getting released. I'm guessing a Q4 2008 release. Doesn't really matter to me anyway cause I dont like RTS game

Lawl, Blizzcon will have a playable version for sure.

Anyhoot I think the Hyberians will still be in starcraft 2 since its following up in the story. Perhaps not a playable class, but still should be great things in store for us.

Shame what happened with valve getting rid of their black box package
