StarCraft Remastered Release Date Confirmed

Blizzard has confirmed that the highly anticipated StarCraft: Remastered will be available worldwide for Mac and PC on August 14th for $14,99. The bundle will include the core game (obviously!) and the Brood War expansion. Those who decide to pre-purchase the remastered edition of the award-winning RTS will be rewarded with three exclusive building skins along with a co-op commander (Alexei Stukov) and three iconic portraits for StarCraft II.

The three unique building skins are:

  • the Char Hive
  • the Korhal Command Center
  • the Aiur Nexus

Interestingly enough, players who opt to pick up the remastered edition of this classic title will be able to play with those who prefer playing with the original StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War games.

  • Player profiles tracking individual stats
  • Cloud saving
  • Higher fidelity music and sound

Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, made a statement regarding the release of this highly acclaimed remaster

“Nearly 20 years ago, StarCraft welcomed millions of gamers to an epic sci-fi universe—and also helped form the foundation for esports as we know it today. Passionate gamers around the world are still playing Brood War, both with friends and competitively, so we’re modernizing the technology behind StarCraft so that they can continue to enjoy the game for many years to come.”

To allow players so  fans or newcomers  across the world can enjoy StarCraft: Remastered, Blizzard has localized the game into a bevvy of languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, European and Latin American Spanish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, and simplified and traditional Chinese.
