CVG released part two of their Starcraft II Preview. Here they cover a few details of the Colossus, Phoenix, Warp-in ability of Phase Prisms, the Mothership and comments concerning e-Sports and TV, and the secrecy of Starcraft II’s plot.
How About The Plot?
This is another tight-lipped, no-go area. The initial announcement was Blizzard vice president Chris Metzen’s unsatisfying assertion that “everyone who survived will have their stories told”. As more people nagged about the fourth race, this was extended to a promise that the Zerg/Protoss hybrid would be dealt with. In a meeting the next day, the only other scraps of plot information were that the game is set four years after the events of the previous game, and that people have been “having adventures” in the meantime. In other words, we were like dogs sniffing at the bottom of the bedroom door.
