StarCraft II details

During its BlizzCon conference at the Anaheim convention center, Blizzard announced new details regarding the forthcoming StarCraft II. Specifically, the company has provided new Terran unit and building information. Detailed profiles on the Marine, Reaper, Ghost, Viking, and Command Center have been posted to the Starcraft 2 Web site. Blizzard says "In the aftermath of the Brood War, the resourcefulness, ingenuity, resilience, and sheer grit of the Terrans shows in their new designs and adjustments to existing designs as they adapt to and counter their enemies' strengths and weaknesses." Each site profile includes background information, screenshots, video, and concept art.

The Marines page, for instance, states "The heavy armor worn by marines is effective against small-arms fire and provides them with full life support and NBC (Nuclear/Biological/Chemical) shielding for operation in deep space and other hostile environments. Ballistic alloy combat shields have also been developed in light of experiences during the Brood War, giving an option to toughen up marines faced with an increasingly lethal battlefield."
