StarCraft: Remastered is now live and will support 4K UHD

If there was one game that truly deserves the remaster treatment, it’s Blizzard‘s genre-defining space epic StarCraft.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential strategy games of all time, the StarCraft: Remastered lets players re-experience the saga of iconic characters like Jim Raynor, High Templar Tassadar, and Kerrigan, through upgraded 4K visuals, enhanced audio and music, and new illustrated story interludes. I would imagine that there’s still a sizeable pool of gamers (especially the younger ones) who only experienced StarCraft II, not the original. Well, StarCraft: Remastered should appeal to both older and recent fans.

“We know how much StarCraft and Brood War mean to our community around the world, and our primary mission with StarCraft: Remastered was to enhance as much as we could while keeping the core StarCraft experience intact,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether you’re a StarCraft veteran or you’re experiencing the beginning of the saga for the first time, we hope you enjoy revisiting the Koprulu Sector as much as we did.”

StarCraft: Remastered comes tons of new updates and features, including:

  • Full graphical upgrade of the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War expansion

  • Matchmaking and leaderboards

  • Cloud saving for campaign progress, hotkeys, and replays
