StarCraft II Q&A Round 4
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The fourth list of answers to fan questions about the upcoming StarCraft II was recently made available on the Blizzard StarCraft forums. The sequel to the still popular original StarCraft, SC II will introduce new multiplayer action and pick up the Zerg, Terran, and Protoss storylines a few years after the end of BroodWar.

1. Are the yellow minerals shown in the trailers harvestable?
Yes, they will be a harvestable high yield resource, meaning each harvest rotation will result in greater mineral quantities than the standard blue minerals. This gives players more strategic choices when trying to evaluate where they wish to expand. Expand to the high yield but risk easier discovery? Or expand to a safer area but earn fewer resources?

2. Will resource sharing be allowed between allies?
Yes, it is our plan to have this in the game, though there is still much testing and balancing revolving around this ability.

3. Will allied chat be enabled by default for pre-set teams?
Yes.

4. Is the Zealot charge ability an upgrade as well?
Yes, this ability is upgraded through the Protoss War Shrine.
