Starcraft II is a real time strategy game produced and developed by Blizzard Entertainment as a sequel to one of the most popular and best selling games of all time, Starcraft.
Part One of the three part Starcraft II series is currently released. The other two (Heart of The Swarm and Legacy of the Void) have no planned release date.
Lead by the former human ghost Sarah Kerrigan, the Zerg remain a strong opponent in the Starcraft Universe. Their numbers rival any other race and they swarm like a disease across space. Striving for perfection, the Zerg assimilate other races into their own to create different strains of the insectoid race. Instead of having a democratic system, the Zerg are led by Kerrigan and think as a Hive Mind (one being).
The Terran are the human fictional version of us. They are nomadic and often move around to different areas to gather and deplete areas of resources just to stay alive. They are also the most dangerous in terms of loyalty. It is not uncommon to find the Terran fighting with each other for dominance despite the Zerg infestation.
Considered to be the perfect race and the most technologically advanced. Despite their warrior like ideas and tribal instincts, the Protoss remain neutral only for the protection of the galaxy and life itself. Because of their perfection and intelligent attributes, they are the targeted race for the Zerg to assimilate into.
The Galaxy Editor
The Galaxy Editor is a part of Starcraft II if you have purchased the game or have downloaded the beta. It is considered one of the most robust RTS editors in Blizzard's history. With more options to change units and structures, more emphasis is focused on producing custom games that move further and further away from the RTS gameplay.
Here is a demonstration by Blizzard at Blizzcon to show how much you can do:
The possibilities are endless. If you have any ideas, feel free to share them and try to help each other produce maps.
More will be added to the OP as time goes on. I created this thread because we only had the other 'Who's Ready' thread. If you have pictures from the beta or the full game, private message me with a link to the picture so that I can put it in.
