In the distant future, a small group of human exiles have been doomed to fight for survival on the edge of the galaxy. Through military strength, espionage, and deceit, a unified Terran government has maintained an uneasy peace, but as resources and fuel run short the Confederate nations find themselves looking towards the rich worlds of their alien neighbors, the enigmatic Protoss. To further complicate matters, it seems that a previously unknown species, the Zerg, have entered Protoss space and are destroying everything in their path. The time for war has come.
As the military leader for your species, you must gather the resources you need to train and expand your military and lead them to victory over powerful and truly alien opponents.
This demo features three all-new missions that foreshadow the upcoming galactic war. It also includes an optional tutorial mission to introduce new players to the ways of war.
You can play head-to-head via modem, serial link, IPX network, and over the Internet through Blizzard Entertainment's on-line gaming service, Battle.net.
