About a few weeks back, Blizzard announced that the original Starcraft and its Brood War expansion would be remastered, to include 4K Ultra High Definition resolution and an updated zoom out and in function among others. They released the following video to accompany the remaster announcement:
To add on top of all of that, Blizzard also followed up by announcing that version 1.18 of Starcraft: Brood War would be released - featuring anti-cheat measures, compatibility with modern operating systems as well as letting the Starcraft Anthology to be made free for download!
