* Fast-paced, hard-hitting, tightly balanced competitive real-time strategy gameplay that recaptures and improves on the magic of the original game

* Three completely distinct races: Protoss, Terran, and Zerg

* New units and gameplay mechanics further distinguish each race

* Groundbreaking single-player "story-mode" campaign

* Vibrant new 3D-graphics engine with support for dazzling visual effects and massive unit and army sizes

* Full multiplayer support, with new competitive features and matchmaking utilities available through Battle.net

* Full map-making and scripting tools to give players incredible freedom in customizing and personalizing their gameplay experience

As a fan of the original game, I just can't wait to play this.

I'm certainly not holding my breath for its release, wouldn't be surprised if we don't see it out until 2009-2010, even when its looking like its fairly far into production. Remember Warcraft 3? When was the first time they showed that off? 2000? And it was released around 2004. Really hope this isn't the case, but I'm prepared for the worst.

Anyway, like I said in the old thread, anyone up for some Starcraft in the weekend? (Only if you haven't played in ages and wont kick ass that is :)).

I lost my CD years ago :(

As for SC2, one thing I have noticed is absent from the trailers released so far, is the protoss carrier. I really hope they'll have it in there. That was my favorite unit, I'd always build a nice fleet of carriers. I'm really curious to see what old tactics will still work and which ones won't, and some of the new tactics that emerge. I hope they won't make me wait too long for it, hopefully before 2009 :-D

I would love to, but which version and why on battlenet when we could use hamachi ? erhm :D

yea, we'd need to sort that out. I just thought that using bnet was the easiest way to go, but some people here are lame and didn't hold on to their beloved bought blizzard product, so they have to resort to their data security measure copies :cool:

So yea, latest or just 1.0?

Note sure if it's been posted, but I think this is the official trailer with all past clips in one 20 minute video with the dev commentary.

I love the Protoss units/buildings. Such a slick design to them.

[edit]

Doh, it's on the official site too, of course
