With StarCraft Remastered coming out next week, it seemed appropriate to look back at the setting as a whole. Who are the Zerg or the Protoss? Why are they fighting with Humans? Is this supposed to be the future of Earth? Or is it some Star Wars style “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away” scenario? This post won’t be touching much upon the sheer volume of Starcraft lore built up over the years. Instead, we’ll rather focus on what you’ll need to know to get up to speed if you decide to go and give StarCraft Remastered a try.
