Starcraft 2.
« on: May 19, 2007, 02:19:05 AM »
Announced at Blizzard's Worldwide invitational in, you guessed it, South Korea.

I mean...where the hell else would they announce a new Starcraft, eh? I smell a holiday.



StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment as a sequel to the award-winning 1998 video game StarCraft. Released on July 27, 2010, the game was developed for concurrent release on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. However, with the help of Wine, StarCraft II can also be played under GNU/Linux distributions. StarCraft II is split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, and two expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void.

Set in the 26th century in a distant part of the Milky Way galaxy, the game is built around three species: the Terrans, human exiles from Earth; the Zerg, a race of insectoid genetic assimilators; and the Protoss, a species with vast psionic power. Wings of Liberty focuses on the Terrans, while the expansions Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void will focus on the Zerg and Protoss, respectively. The game is set four years after the events of StarCraft: Brood War, and follows the exploits of Jim Raynor as he leads an insurgent group against the autocratic Terran Dominion. The game includes both new and returning characters and locations from the original game.

What can you do to end the hunger?
It's no surprise that many will die with the coming shortage of food
When there is no grain to feed the butchered cows
When there is nothing to feed yourselves...
Then you will see that money can't be eaten.

 one of  the trailer shows the actual ''building'' of a marine , very cool ...
 
 The actual game itself looks like a super upgraded version of  the warcraft III engine , using the same technique that makes it look good , really bright and rich colours , so it will look sexy 5 years down the line like Warcraft III has held up ,and the requirements won't break anyone's bank.

 Can't wait for this to release , hopefully they follow Microsoft's lead and do an open beta... it would generate massive buzz for the game and make it perfectly polished when it does release .

Blizz makes a billion dollars a year now , they have immense resources and an open beta won't strain them any . Plus , a large scale multiplayer test would evaporate the markets of its potential rivals beforehand  , who the ass will buy command and conquer or Empire earth 3 when SCII is FREE to play?


I also note blizz has its own P2P system resembling bit torrent , saving them bandwidth...

It is actually bittorrent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_Downloader

It uses the same ports as bittorrent and you also extract the tracker information and get it using a regular bt client from their servers, by using a hex editor on the exe.

I assume that it's running a modified Warcraft 3 engine since it was started right after War3 came out.

I have not heard any information to indicate that the sc2 engine is a modified war3 engine but I am sure some components were probably borrowed no problems with that.  Quoting starcraft2.com

"StarCraft II will run on a vibrant new 3D-graphics engine that will be capable of rendering beautiful landscapes as well as massive individual units and army sizes."

Just too add to all this I now properly understand why Starcraft is so popular in S. Korea and hence the choice of launching of Starcraft II there:

42% of all 9+million opies of the original Starcraft/Broodwar sold are in S. Korea.

Anyhow, as soon as i finish beat Frozen Throne for the first time.. I going back in Starcraft behind again.. I even buying original CDs and all.. US$20!
