Shows new protoss units, including a revamped carrier and a "twilight archon"

Some of the terrain is amazing!

edit - HAHAHAH, Just yesterday HKS was telling me, "We should make buildings that can blink." And lo and behold, the Protoss have blinking turrets.

edit 2 - Also worth mentioned, there is A REAVER in the last bit. Look closely in the protoss units. It's a hovering unit, now.

The terrain is a bit disappointing, the jungle looks like it was cut and paste out of warcraft 3

You must be smoking crack Castlebunker.  Although the video is disappointingly low-resolution.  Can't expect much from youtube though.  Anyone got a link to a high res version?  Sure would be helpful.

The new carrier design is awesome.

I also loved the tilesets.  ;D

And reavers are still around!

Edit: Stasis field is also visible. And Protoss get surfer units now, as well. :)

"The Protoss will always win because they have the ability to make giant bananas that fly through the air and send out "infoceptors" which slaughter the enemy with popup ads and useless information about blizzard games such as "Starcraft is one of the greatest games of all time" and "Blizzard Entertainment is the second advent of Jesus Christ"." - Cheese-Child's Starcraft review

Heh, I guess they aren't "giant bananas" anymore. I like how it looks, including the shield.

And the thing that appears at the end indeed looks like a Reaver. As of now, the known units are:

SC                              SC2

Zealot                        Zealot
Dragoon                      Immortal
Dark Templar              Stalker
High Templar              High Templar?
Archon                        Twilight Archon
Dark Archon                Colossus
Shuttle                      Phase Prism
Reaver                        Reaver?
Observer                    Soul Hunter
Scout                          Phoenix
Corsair                        Warp Ray
Carrier                        Tempest Carrier II Electric Boogaloo
Arbiter                        Mothership

And chances are they need an Observer-type flying detector, meaning there will probably be at least 1 more Protoss unit than in Brood War.

I near shit myself when I saw those carriers. Who am I kidding, I did.


but haha, I can imagine some CRAZY ass strategies involving blinking cannons. I really hope they keep adding a bunch of totally unexpected things like that, to completely change how you play. Of course to an extent.


oh REAVERS ARE STILL HERE MOFOS!

Wrong. Observer, High Templar, and Dark Templar are still in the game; Blizzard isn't done with them yet.


"Observer: The invisible flying eyes of the Protoss are back. We can confirm they'll be in the game, but further details are shrouded in secrecy. "

"High templar: The high templar is back and he'll bring his powerful psionic storm area attack with him. But he's gotten a handy new power he'll be able to create a force field to trap enemy units temporarily or create barriers. Blizzard testing has revealed some extremely effective bottlenecks tactics using him. The ability to say you can't go there anymore will be very powerful."

"Dark templar: Just like in the first game the dark templar is a stealth unit that wreaks havoc to any force foolish enough to leave home without a detector. any new special abilities have yet to be revealed  "

The High Templar is even seen in the first gameplay video.

Anyway, I'm guessing the more dark tones of the Protoss are leading the story to point out it's been more "Dark" ruled now. But that's just a wild guess. (Sarcasm)

Actually, the jungle has really grown on me. (LOL GET IT? JUNGLE? GROWN ON ME? Aw fuck it.)

I hope the Jungle still has water, though.

HAHA, I could see them trying to reason out how water isnt part of the jungle worlds.

But the fact that there are very little doodads in the jungle (my favorite terrain) type. =(

where's the trees =(

Well now we know most of the Protoss units.  It looks like the Protoss is taking a turn towards the Dark Templar side.  The new Tempests are obviously Dark Templar technology, along with the Soul Hunters and Twilight Archon.

I saw the Reaver!  It's staying.
I have seen the Desler.  I have tasted of his milk and honey.

its a bit confusing now which units will replace what in SC2
I do believe that the mothership doesn't reaplce anyhting and thats its an additional unit
BTW, in my opinion, the names of the units in the video suck.
tempest instead of carrier? it was called a carrier because it acts like a carrier ship, carrying interceptors. tempest doesn't fit.
twilight archon? what does a twilight have to do with an with an archon  ???
soul hunter? how cliche is that name?
phase cannon is good though :)
