Starcraft II Q&A Batch 56

Starcraft II Q&A Batch 56 has gone the route of a Fansite Q&A, so the developers responded questions submitted by Starcraft II Source (4players.de). In the original game, whenever a patch is released, the past replays become unplayable. The jewel of these questions answered definitely has to be that replays will be compatible across all new upcoming patches. You can read the whole Q&A here.

Some replays were not compatible with new patches in StarCraft I. Are you working on making replays compatible with new patches for StarCraft II?
Yes, we

    3. In the campaign of StarCraft II, there are many optional objectives to do so that the player can choose how to play through the campaign. But there are players who want to see every cinematic and play every mission. Are there missions where you have to decide, which way you go (e.g. the Terran campaign in StarCraft I, where you decide to choose nuclear weapons or Battlecruisers), or will the player be able to play the whole campaign in a linear progression? Will there be a menu were you can replay already completed missions? If so, can you also unlock new missions in that menu?

    As you play through the campaign, there will be a few cases where you must <u>make a distinct choice that could change the outcome of a certain side plot or the fate of a specific character.</u> These choices will be made very obvious to players, and for those who want to see all the possibilities, you’ll have the ability to go back and choose the other path. We will also have a way for you to replay completed missions or cinematic cut scenes via the story mode interface as well.

    F#@$. This is going to cause major confusion as to whats canon. I hate diverging plots like this, especially when they’re major decisions
