And it appears to be an RTS :D

FMV sequence in a spaceship - looks Terran - zooming in on a metal door - door opening - reveals a guy with a cigar in chains - prisoner - door shuts behind him - there's so much bass the room is shaking - guy steps into some kind of metallic devicce - legs are strapped in - guy rising toward ceiling - Korean text on screen got people very excited - another part of the machine is dropping metal arms on him - machine whirring - applying armor to his torso - extremly detailed visuals here - now guy is strapping on gloves - armor is molding together - seems like a Terran marine - rockets turn on - zerg now onscreen - Marine delivers a line - StarCraft 2 officially announced.

Out of curiosity I tried typing in blizzard.com/starcraft2, starcraft2.blizzard.com, starcraft2.com.

I found that:
http://www.starcraft2.com/

Redirects to Blizzard.com.

A sign of things to come.

Screenshots?! They have done very well to keep it underwraps for so long. Most announcements come with nothing but a press release and a concept FMV. This is very cool indeed.

Unless of course those a simply mock up shots... Looks good so far, very true to the original.

cinematic has always been great from Blizzard, HQ and well done. The game looks like SC1 in every way, kinda like how CnC3 was done, they kept the game intact which made it fun. I cant wait.

SC was the first PC game I owned, many good years with it, can't wait for this.

So, most games that are just like their prequels are shot down as being too much of the same thing, but when it comes to Starcraft, it's a good thing?

I never played StarCraft, so this is new to me, and could be a good thing.

It looks like Warcraft 3, which isn't a bad thing. I mean, the game looks good. I'll most likely pick up a copy. I never got into the original Starcraft. I think it had something to do with everyone foaming at the mouth over a 10 year old game.

As far as gameplay goes those videos were really boring imho. Only thing that looked cool was the zerg "wave" attack other things but even that wasn't really wow.

Sh!t, I were hoping they would announce Diablo 3. :thumbdwn:

SC is good, but Diablo is better.

Maybe because its a good ****ing game? :rolleyes:

Thank f*cking god its not an MMO. I am looking forward to this. First time in years I have said that about a blizzard title. Here is to hoping that this game will have widescreen support.

Well, thank you Blizzard! Finally they're putting out something decent again!

Looking forward to this, but there's probably gonna be a bit of a wait period... Still, at least now I know they're serious about it! :captnkill:

Finally a sequal!
Unfortunally, blizzard never had good graphic engins in their games...
Nevertheless, this is going to be one badass game!
Bring it on!!!

they have had good graphic engines, they just dont push for anything new or technical hehe :) they usually want their games to play on a lot of pc's out there. wc3 ran on low end comps just fine when it came out, and so did WoW. Its one thing to have a good engine, its another to have the most latest graphic technology eye candy available in the engine. Lots of game engines out there have the tech but dont have a good engine.
