Blizzard has announced that StarCraft: Remastered will be hitting PC on August 14th, 2017 for $14.99. Originally released in 1998, StarCraft is still one of the most popular online games in the world. StarCraft: Remastered will include everything from the original release as well as its expansion, Brood War.
The full list of features for this remaster are as follows;
- Full graphical upgrade of the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War expansion

- New matchmaking and leaderboards
- Player profiles that track individual statistics
- Cloud saving for campaign progress, hotkeys, and replays
