Generally, when I hear of remasters and re-makes, I think of something like the recent Matrix-scare. But this is something I can really get behind!

Blizzard just announced their new & improved HD edition of our favorite RTS, StarCraft. The game will have everything you remember from the original game & the Brood War expansion.

My boyfriend just rebooted StarCraft the other day, and as nostalgic and excited as he felt playing the game- he was just talking to me this past weekend about how he wished they could do something about the graininess, because if any classic deserved a remake- it’s this one. It’s like they read his mind!

According to Blizzard’s CEO, Mike Morhaime, they’re “modernizing the original game’s visuals, audio, and online support to ensure that players can enjoy StarCraft for another 20 years and beyond.” The graphics are bound to be incredible (in 4k ultra high definition), the audio is getting its own rework, and there will be a couple new features, including matchmaking. So yeah, you could say we’re excited over here.

Though they haven’t released a price just yet, I can tell you already that this is one wagon I’m jumping on. Check out the official trailer below & let me know what you think in the comments.
