If you’ve been waiting to hear details on when the 3 new official mods for the hugely popular real-time strategy game StarCraft II would be launched, then I think we have great news for you. Blizzard Entertainment has just announced that it has now released the new mods.
As James Orry over at videogamer.com recently reported, the three new mods — titled Left 2 Die, Aiur Chef and StarJeweled — have already been available to fans in beta form. However, Blizzard says that the final versions have been polished with bug fixes and a number of improvements.
They also feature official achievements and new avatars to unlock. The Left 2 Die mod sees players working together with a partner in order to defend their base from the onrush of the zerg infested. StarJeweled has players pitting their puzzle-solving skills against that of their opponents.
The Aiur Chef mod on the other hand sees both players and their opponents participating in a cooking race, in which they have to gather and mix exotic ingredients. Players can access the new mods by entering into StarCraft II and selecting the Features section of the Join Game interface.
