My all time favourite strategy game, Starcraft2, is nearing its release date (which is yet to be decided 😦 ).. however, they are releasing information bit by bit, to keep fans interested and motivated. (Sucha as gameplay Videos, Screenshots etc).
Now, Blizzard has released a Biography of Jim Raynor, the famous character from SC1, on their website. Following is an excerpt from the main article.
Starcraft fans Read On !
Blizzard released two new screens for Starcraft 2 today. While neither show your traditional top-down RTS gameplay, they do show off the game’s adventure-styled hub setting. And how gorgeous it’s looking. They also give us a close-up of one of the game’s leading characters, rebel fighter Jim Raynor, who looks like he could do with more sleep.
Im soooo looking forward to this game !
