StarCraft: Remastered Launch Event

StarCraft: Remastered releases today! Hop on into Day[9]'s Twitch channel today and tomorrow to watch the StarCraft: Remastered launch event!

Blizzard Entertainment’s 1998 real-time strategy game, StarCraft, is one of the most celebrated e-Sports in gaming history. StarCraft was, and still is, a huge part of South Korean entertainment culture (some might even consider it to be South Korea’s national pastime), and it was a major part of some of the first truly big eSports leagues and events, like the World Cyber Games.

Today, nearly 10 years later, Blizzard is releasing StarCraft: Remastered worldwide — a revamped version of the classic title with brand new, high-definition graphics, re-recorded audio and dialogue, and localization for 13 different languages.

Blizzard has also fully integrated the Remastered edition with its current Battle.net social infrastructure, which will finally bring first-party ranked multiplayer matchmaking and leaderboards to Brood War.

But most importantly, the gameplay (for better or worse) remains completely unchanged — so you’d best be prepared to wrestle with the infamously whacky Dragoon pathfinding if you start playing again.

StarCraft: Remastered Launch Stream

With no changes made to the classic gameplay they know all too well, old Brood War pros will find themselves right at home with the Remastered edition — and Blizzard has seen fit to gather several of those players together for a StarCraft: Remastered launch event.

The launch event will run from 3PM until midnight, both today and tomorrow, over on takes place 3 p.m. to midnight, both today and tomorrow, on Day[9]’s Twitch channel.

Come join the stream, and experience the re-rerelease of one of eSport’s most celebrated games!
