StarCraft: Remastered Release Date

Blizzard Entertainment will release its remastered version of StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War on Aug. 14, the company announced this week. StarCraft: Remastered will cost $14.99.

StarCraft: Remastered is a “full graphical upgrade” of the 1998 original and its expansion. Blizzard promises widescreen high-definition support up to 4K resolution, as well as higher fidelity music and sound. StarCraft: Remastered will also bring new matchmaking and leaderboards, as well as cloud saves for campaign progress, hotkey customization and game replays. Players will also be able to swap between the real-time strategy game’s remastered and original visuals “with the click of a button.”

Blizzard is offering a few incentives for players who pre-order StarCraft: Remastered, according to a press release:

All players who pre-purchase before August 14 will receive three unique building skins for use in StarCraft: Remastered—the Char Hive, the Korhal Command Center, and the Aiur Nexus. Additionally, those who purchase StarCraft: Remastered will receive digital bonuses in StarCraftII, including the Alexei Stukov co-op commander and three unique portraits that celebrate StarCraft: Remastered.

StarCraft: Remastered will be available for Mac and Windows PC. Check out a batch of new screenshots from the game in the gallery below.
