IMG Previews StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new preview of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty the eagerly anticipated sequel to the ever popular sci-fi real time strategy game, StarCraft. StarCraft II will pick up a few years after the end of Broodwar and will feature a single player storyline focused on the Terrans, as well as new multiplayer action for gamers to enjoy.

Here's an excerpt from the preview:

The new strategic focus is on macromanagement instead of micromanagement, which has changed how the game handles things like mineral mining and commanding armies. In the original StarCraft, for example, you could only command twelve units at a time. In StarCraft II, the upper limit for unit control is in the hundreds. As a result, controlling a large army is much less about the minute commands given to small groups. In addition, all abilities are now activated one at a time when a group is selected. This allows you to target your abilities much more effectively without having to select each unit in turn.

Multiplayer matchmaking has also been improved significantly from the list of games approach used in StarCraft. All you have to do now is to select your game type and let Battle.Net find a game for you. These games are automatically weighted for you to find a game roughly around your skill level, which appears to have decreased the newbie stomping seen in the ladder matches of old. All players also have to go through a process for determining their league that consists of a few games where you're put up against fellow newbies. You generally get dozens of extremely exciting games, as they aren't over in the first few minutes.
