Earlier today, I became one of the first people in the world to fire up Starcraft II’s beta. And while it’s too soon to share my impressions of the game with you, it’s not too early to share some screenshots. I’ve tried to get a nice balance of races and terrain here, to give you [...]
Fans of StarCraft's Protoss may not have to wait until 2011—or later—to get their hands on the teleporting, psionic blade-wielding alien race. The Protoss will apparently get their own mini-campaign in the first part of StarCraft II‘s trilogy.
While we weren’t expecting to take control of the Protoss in anything but multiplayer until StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void shipped, looks like we’re getting a small taste of the faction’s single-player action this year.
A Blizzard employee writes on the official Battle.net forums “there will be a Protoss mini-campaign that lets you control Protoss units” in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, the Terran third of the campaign.
“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,” wrote the Blizzard Europe RTS Community Team member.
Just don’t expect it to go too far beyond “mini.”
“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,” indicated the Blizzard staffer. There go my dreams of moving to Korea and going pro, mini-campaign! Thanks for nothing.
As Mike has told you, Starcraft II is coming along nicely. Need to see for yourself? Here’s two new gameplay videos from the Terran campaign. StarCraft 2 Evacuation/Lava Mining Gameplay HD [GameVideos]

For some of us, playing StarCraft competitively is a beautiful ballet of dying over and over again, so it’s good that Blizzard is working hard on making death interesting in StarCraft II. The latest update to the Developer’s Corner section of the official StarCraft II web page showcases this video, kicking off with a Protoss [...]
The Starcraft II beta starting this summer is a sign of things to come. A release date is a sign of we things come to all of us. We don’t have a release date. Though, we do have Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime saying that Starcraft II will be release in 2009 as long as it “meets [...]
