Ready to roll out – Starcraft:Remastered to be released 15th August (NZ)

When I opened up my inbox today to find an email from Blizzard with a release date for StarCraft:Remastered I got a tad excited. I know we are getting a whole lot of remade classics at the moment but for me StarCraft is one of my all time faves, and although I liked StarCraft II, nothing beats the original.

Unlike others, I didn’t play StarCraft on PC first, I was one of the few who played it on the good old Nintendo 64. Terran is my jam and I spent hours and hours with my best mate, just building up an army of Siege Tanks and Battlecruisers just to have a short all out war… split screened… on a 5″ black and white TV (hey, we did what we had to). These days with our tech ever advancing, this 4k remastered edition is sure to go down a treat!


StarCraft®: Remastered upgrades the essential sci-fi strategy experience from beginning to end. Welcome back to the original game and its award-winning expansion, StarCraft: Brood War.

We’ve remastered our units, buildings, and environments, improved game audio, and broadened our supported resolutions. Illustrated interludes bring the struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged.
