Starcraft 2 is easily the most anticipated PC/Mac game — if not the most anticipated game on any platform — of 2010. Heck, Starcraft 2 may be the most anticipated game of the past three years. But it’s finally here. Blizzard’s latest strategy outing is now in the wild, now entertaining the masses online, and now available for free in what’s bound to be one of our most popular game giveaways to date.
Starcraft 2 takes place in the distant future and in the darkest reaches of space, where the ghosts of the past whisper your name. Players assume the role of Jim Raynor, a marshal-turned-rebel who’s on a vigilante crusade to bring down the Dominion and its nefarious leader, Arcturus Mengsk. Haunted by betrayal and remorse, some believe Raynor may have given up the fight. But he, and thus the player, has promises to keep and a need for vengeance that’s long overdue.
With more than 30 new units and weapons to control, Blizzard’s new RTS lets players choose which missions to take, which storylines to complete (Protoss, Terrans or Zerg) and where to invest their hard-earned cash. And of course there’s a massively multiplayer online component via Battle.net and its AutoMatch technology that makes sure players of the same skill level play against one another and never prey on the weak(er).
