A new gameplay clip of Blizzard’s new Starcraft game Wings of Liberty. Graphics improved a ton compared to the previous version Broodwar. Who else can’t wait to see the full game? How are the new social features going to work in Battle.net? I’m going Protoss and you?
Activition (Guitar Hero, Call of Duty, etc.) and Blizzard Entertainment (Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo), now Activition Blizzard Inc., are creating a new “cross-game communication” platform with “social networking features”. The good ol’ battle.net from the Starcraft Broodwar, Warcraft and Diablo days will be used for that. The revamped battle.net with all the full social features will go live with the release of Starcraft II in early 2010. The basics of battle.net is already online and can be found here. So far you can only add your blizzard games by using your game keys. Feel free to comment to how big this new online community might become.
