recently revealed that Blizzard Entertainment
's next next beta patch for the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
client will pave the way for the release of a Mac version of the beta. The update will also include the Galaxy Editor, giving testers the chance to explore the toolset. SC II will pick up a few years after the end of Broodwar and will follow the story of the Terrans.
Yesterday, Blizzard revealed that the next beta patch should be launching this week along with the much-anticipated Galaxy Editor, which will allow gamers to create their own maps and script their own scenarios.
At best, the patch could hit today along with another database reset, but should be released by the end of this week according to lead producer Chris Sigaty.
The editor will not allow users to publish creations to the Battle.net 2.0 cloud, which is planned for the retail release of the game, but it will give players an opportunity to learn the scripting engine and get to work on their creations. Eventually (a year after release) map-makers will be able to sell their creations on the Battle.net Marketplace.
Additionally, the Mac beta client will be made available 3-4 days following the patch.
