StarCraft: The Dark Templar, Twilight Audibook Available

Blizzard Entertainment released the last part of the trilogy in audiobook format — StarCraft: The Dark Templar, Twilight (Audible).

This novel by Christie Golden was originally published in June 30, 2009 — as a novel tie-in to the StarCraft II trilogy. In this novel, we learned the truth about the Xel’Naga and also featuring Ulrezaj, the dark archon.

The audiobook was narrated by no other than Christie Golden herself.

Blizzard Seeks Test Lead for StarCraft

StarCraft: Remastered went Live on August 14, 2017. Yet, Blizzard Entertainment posted a job opening for a Test Lead to join the Classic Games team.

Toward the end of the job opening text by the “Pluses” section it clearly says: Passion for StarCraft.

Through some techniques I was able to find this job opening was posted on April 7, 2020.

The question is… why would Blizzard Entertainment need a Test Lead for a game that shipped 3 years ago unless you are planning to add some type of content? This job opening is in the “Quality Assurance” job category.

But… StarCraft II is also now considered a Classic Game. So don’t get too excited about new StarCraft: Remastered content.

So what could Blizzard be working on for StarCraft II if this is what the job opening is for? Well, it could be anything such as new Co-op Commanders or a new campaign (i.e. Nova Covert Ops).

Whatever it is… Blizzard has reached a phase where they are drawing close to a PTR testing or sudden release within the next 6-12 months+.

StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel’Naga Audible

The StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel’Naga Audible is coming on March 10, 2020. It is truly special, because this unabridged audiobook based on Gabriel Mesta’s 2001 novel is narrated by Neil Kaplan … the voice actor behind Tychus Findlay.

Neil Kaplan is also known as Emperor Zarkon / Galra Guard / Officer Sablan in Voltron: Legendary Defender (TV Series), Dominus Ghaul (Destiny 2), Cenarius (World of Warcraft: Legion), Kiyoyasu (Naruto TV series 2006), but holy #$% … his most immortalized character gotta be Optimus Prime in Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2000). He has worked in many other video games and TV series to fit all in here. Your scrolling finger is going to hurt.
