StarCraft 2 has been the biggest PC game of the year so far, and there's still plenty of freshness to be enjoyed in multiplayer. But Blizzard has released a little something new in the form of a 3v3 map called "Burning Tide".
Featuring timed lava surges and collectable mineral caches, Burning Tide is a 3v3 map that combines several thematic elements from the epic single-player campaign mission "The Devil's Playground." Like the campaign mission, the goal of this game is greed, and the first team to reach the specified resource total wins! Players hoping to achieve victory on this map will need to work together, carefully managing their team's unit production and safeguarding their vulnerable workers as they defend against enemy forces.
Check out Burning Tide now in the custom games list in the game client.
Since this map has been out for a few days already, sound off in the comments if you've already had a chance to check it out!
i tried it a day ago
Blizzard sometimes I wonder if you guys aren't junking out on hat magazines like valve
With that said, I certainly appreciate the custom map. I am hoping the community will step forward and produce some killer maps like we saw in SC1 - and not just a million flavors of tower defense. I've only seen a few good ones. I really would like a proper remake of the Art of Defense maps. Someone put together a new "Art of Defense" map but its completely different and mostly junk. The beauty of the old AoD was its simplicity, I think we went too far on adding extra paths, lots of empty space, expansion points, etc in the new one.
