Not a single drop of Korean blood in me, I swear. But even I’m looking forward to the release of Starcraft 2!
Blizzard claims the title’s been ten years in the making but I believe it’s something more like a ten year period which has been punctuated by the releases of World of Warcraft, World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. And the workings on Diablo III.
The cinematics on display thus far have absolutely blown me away. Blizzard have always been good with their trailer offerings, but the ones for Starcraft 2 are just out of this world. An insider interview (available from the official website) with Blizzard’s Cinematic Creative Director revealed that the polygon count on the marine was so high that when the team tried to render it, they actually broke the software. Now that is detail. Way to go Blizzard!
I shall leave you now with some screenies I capped from the TV advert.
Not long now.
