Arguably on of the most important games in e-sports, Starcraft is just one of those titles that have deserved a re-look considering just how many people still play this iconic title and just how old it is.

In terms of specifics, here is a rundown of what StarCraft: Remastered offers:

  • Widescreen UHD support for up to 4K
  • New illustrations to “enhance storytelling” in the campaign missions
  • “Advanced matchmaking”
  • “Full connectivity” to Blizzard’s online network
  • Cloud saves for campaign progress, custom-made maps, keybinds, and replays
  • Eight new languages in addition to the five that came with the original

“While these improvements will bring StarCraft to the modern era, gameplay and balance have been precisely preserved, for an experience that will feel identical to veteran players,” Blizzard said.

The title will be retailing for $14.99/£12.99/AU$21.95.
