Fans of the classic Starcraft and Broodwars titles have something pretty awesome to look forward to. The latest 2.1 patch hit the Public Testing Realm and should add a few cool features to the game. Expansion mods that will help flesh out the mod system. Map mods are a terribly important aspect of Blizzard games and it’s nice to see them adding to the functionality of the existing system. It’s important to remember that DOTA exists because of Warcraft 3’s mod engine.
“Extension mods will help streamline the mod creation process for map developers and allow players to more easily find and play their favorite mods,”
Better mod support is nice and all but Blizzard isn’t done just yet in patch 2.1. Classic soundtracks from the original Starcraft and Broodwars expansion are being added as an optional feature while playing non-campaign based matches. If you long for the electronic charm of yesteryear this patch should be everything you dreamed of and more.
