Starcraft 2 Will Feature Mini Protoss Campaign

Announcement via Blizzard’s Online Forums Reveals Short Protoss Campaign, Possible Prologue to Larger Story

January 4, 2010 – Today, Blizzard revealed that there will be a ‘mini-campaign’ featuring the Protoss, bundled within the larger, Terran storyline of Starcraft 2.

The announcement, made by Blizzard’s Stefanie Gwinner said:

“I won’t go into details, since we don’t give out information on the campaign of StarCraft 2, but I can confirm that there will be a Protoss mini-campaign that lets you control Protoss units. This part of the campaign mode is of course way shorter than the Terran part, but it is very fun to have a very different playstyle to add even more variety to the game. I am sure every Protoss fan will love this part of the Campaign!

“That being said, the Protoss mini-campaign will not prepare you for the multiplayer as Protoss, you won’t be using all units or getting to know buildings and upgrades. In general, even for Terran, it is not the objective of the singleplayer to show how to play the game effectively, it is to tell a story and do a lot of fun things, that would not be possible in multiplayer. The Challenges, mini-missions, that ask you to complete a very specific task, are more suited to give players the opportunity to learn how to use the units and how to play the game.”

Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2010. It will be the first major game release from Blizzard since World of Warcraft was unveiled in 2004.

There is no official release date for Starcraft 2, but it is due to be released in 2010.
