Starcraft II announced

Blizzard has announced their next big game: Starcraft II.

I'll try to throw up some more info later. Right now I'm late getting ready for a wedding. Here's a link for the trailer they showed at the Korean event where they announced it.

Sorry for the delay. Hangovers and travelling... Besides, now there's more news to share!

First off, Starcraft II will be only for the PC and Macs, no consoles. There will be single player and multiplayer modes. Battle.net is expecting some changes to rock out Starcraft II's multiplayer more. The Humans, Protoss and Zerg will all return with some new units and with some new powers for the old units. No word yet on if there will be other races.

Starcraft II takes place four years after the Brood War expansion for Starcraft. The humans in Starcraft II will be the "evil empire" of the Terran Dominion. The ancient Xel'Naga will figure into Starcraft II's storyline, but no word if we'll actually see any or if they still exist. No plans for any water battles.

Ahh...Starcraft. How I've missed a solid reaver rush. This will probably be the game that gets me back into gaming on my PC (after I build a new one).

It's been announced: No other playable races. Only the Protoss, Zerg and Terrans.
