Blizzard has put out a job listing that states “Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replay ability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.” The listing is for a Senior Software Engineer, and this listing suggest that they will come out through Blizzards Launcher. We know Starcraft Remastered is releasing this summer this doesn’t seem to far fetched at all. What do you think? Is something you’d like to see if the pricing is reasonable?
Blizzard as just announced that StarCraft: Remastered will be coming this summer, with a slew of graphical updates, and 4K resolution options. Other improvements include some changes and updates to units, environments, even changes to the soundtrack and dialogue. Things like cloud saves and matchmaking updates will be included to bring a modern feel to the first game in the franchise. Also in the coming weeks, the StarCraft Anthology, which includes the original game and it’s two expansions will be for free for everyone to enjoy until the remaster releases this summer.
In case you haven’t heard, Heroes of the Storm is a game that Blizzard has been showing us at press events for some time now as well as getting players into during a gradually growing Beta which is now available for customers of the Founder’s Back released by Blizzard Entertainment on their market place and gaming community Battle.net . The feel of the game is something like Starcraft RTS elements meshed with Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre. The gameplay thus far looks fluid, but a final build isn’t in players hands – so we’re still keeping a skeptic eye about how good that gameplay really is.
Take a look at the Gameplay Footage for yourself, with a listing of where to get the Founder’s Pack, what’s in it, and the animated trailer for it below in Full 1080P High Definition.
