We’ve remastered our units, buildings, and environments, improved game audio,
and broadened our supported resolutions. Illustrated interludes bring the
struggles and victories of heroes like Artanis, Fenix, Tassadar, Raynor and
Kerrigan to life like never before. Most importantly, the strategy gameplay that
StarCraft perfected years ago remains unchanged.
