Blizzard WWI ‘07: StarCraft 2 Gameplay


After the cinematic trailer was shown, lead game designer Dustin Browder (whose RTS work includes Battle for Middle-earth, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, and Command & Conquer: Generals) came onto the stage and looked as happy as if he won an Academy Award. He then proceeded to narrate an exciting and lengthy demo of the game. For you hardcore StarCraft gamers, you can read about the exact details here. Click through for a few photos from Dustin's demo.


The Terran Battle Cruiser is not to be messed with, especially when there's more than one. (Check out what these suckers can do.)


The Protoss race received a lot of new units. This one is the Colossus, which can easily crush little Zerglings who get in the way. (Watch Zerglings die here.)


The most bad-ass new unit: the Protoss Mothership, an expensive but powerful vehicle which can create a protective field, like so.


But that's not all: she can also create a black hole in order to suck a multitude of enemies into another dimension. Cool! (See the Protoss Mothership in action.)


The crowd cheered when this "GG" Zerg formation came together. "GG" stands for "good game," a phrase players often say to each other after an online match. To see the formation, click here.
