StarCraft 4K release date confirmed, preorders open

Blizzard offering unique skins to those who preorder

Blizzard's remaster of its classic StarCraft series now has an official launch date and pricing.

Fun RTS time

Called StarCraft:Remastered, the game is getting a nice 4K bump, among other things. It will be launching on 14 August on Windows and Mac and will include both the StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War expansion.

Cloud saves, leaderboards, matchmaking and support for up to 13 languages will also be supported. So think a prettier StarCraft, updated for the online age.

What will you get with preorders? You will get three unique building skins: the Korhal Command Center, Aiur Nexus, and Char Hive.

You can preorder the game here for US$14.99 (RM65) if you're keen on getting your Zerg on. Or if you'd rather, you can also download the original game for free.
