The original StarCraft has been hailed as one of the greatest games of all time. It's a landmark in the RTS genre, and nearly two decades after its launch, still generates great memories from its players -- some of whom still prefer it to its shinier sequel.
That base game is getting a shiny update itself, as Blizzard announced this weekend. Coming this summer, StarCraft Remastered will sport improved visuals, 4K resolution, and enhanced audio. The zergling rush has never looked so good.
Even better, the base game -- not the Remastered version -- along with its expansions, will soon be totally free. This accompanies a patch for the game, its first since 2009. The patch hits on Thursday, March 30; you can read all the notes here.
If you don't have the original StarCraft, or just want to relive some great memories of the old days, (re-)acquire the base game later this week. If you've never played it before, you owe it to yourself to try one of the best games of all time, if only to see how Sarah Kerrigan used to look.
