StarCraft II: Patch 1.5, A Step Toward Heart Of The Swarm
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment's Dustin Browder, StarCraft II game director, recently posted a new blog post detailing upcoming changes to the popular sci-fi real time strategy game. In the post the developer discussed some of the changes coming in the 1.5 update including arcade and custom game creation tools, and improvements in chat and game finding functions.

The upcoming 1.5 patch will be our most feature-laden patch to date. This patch represents the first steps towards the release of our first expansion for StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm, and will include numerous upgrades and fixes throughout the game. One of the most significant additions will be the all new Arcade feature which includes improved custom game visibility, ratings, reviews, game instructions, screenshot support, and more. Patch 1.5 will also include significant improvements throughout the overall user interface, streaming support, antialiasing, editor and modding upgrades, new art tools, and more. We’ll go into further details about these features in future developer updates. In this update, I would like to provide some insight into the thinking and motivation behind a few of the upcoming changes.
