I just hope and pray that they will let you zoom out more. What always bugs me with RTS games is that, as far as I know, none of them ever let you zoom all the way out so you can see the whole battlefield.

Starcraft was slick and a lot of fun, but ultimately the endless scrolling drove me nuts and I couldn't play it anymore.

I wish they would make "World of Starcraft" or "Galaxy of Starcraft" or whatever it would be called.

I am so psyched. Here's some demo video. Be sure to watch all the way to see some nukes at the end!

I hope they do it right, considering the Galaxies fiasco.

I've been waiting for this for a while. Now the only question is how long is it going to take. As much as I love Blizzard, they are notorious for pushing release dates back. At the earliest, I don't think this will come out until the second half of 2008.

I'm glad they didn't go for another MMORPG. No matter how much polish they put into it, the genre doesn't appeal to me at all.

A new RTS is a good thing. I just hope it's half as good as starcraft was.

James, in a year's time the game will only just have been released. You'll need to wait another 6 months before anyone can talk about it sensibly

Meanwhile another website to spend time checking for updates. The Protoss stuff looks interesting...building troops in your opponent's base has got to be worth a laugh.meeple

With Blizzard? They're the only 100% dependable game publisher I can think of - not a stinker to their name.

Try the supreme commander demo immediately.

I only wish that they would merge the fantastic art and unit balance of Starcraft with the unbeatable gameplay features of games like supreme commander.

I'm very glad to see they ditched the bs of small groups and heroes that was Warcraft 3. It looks like a more than adequate sequel to one of my all time favorite games.

In an interview I just read yesterday they said they would NOT incorporate the 'mega zoom' from supreme commander because it does more to harm the competitive gameplay than to support it. <-- that's there opinion btw, not mine!

If you haven't checked the website for a few days, they've got a downloadable version of the gamplay demo that someone linked above. It's absolutely KILLER, and the increased quality and resolution will let you get a really nice look at what they're doing with it. I simply can't wait to see some new Zerg units.
