Blizzard has spent the whole year betting on a big showing at Blizzcon. Let’s see how that bet pans out.
DeepMind’s AlphaStar artificial intelligence was recently put to work trying to master the real-time complexities of Blizzard’s StarCraft II. Which it successfully managed in just over six weeks, becoming the first non-human to reach the rank of Grandmaster in the game.
Blizzard is going to release a graphics pack for Starcraft: Remastered that transforms the game, giving it the look of Carbot Animations’ Starcrafts series.
