Blizzard has released a pair of new StarCraft II screenshots showing the game's fancy point-n-click adventure scenes along with a biography on Terran hero, Jim Raynor. Check out the screens here.
No RTS explosions here then, just human hero Jim Raynor looking rather wrinkly and a big ol' spaceship with plenty of buttons and gizmos that'll probably beep when you click on them with your cursor.
In all fairness, the point-n-click stuff does look very nostalgic and should help flesh out the colourful StarCraft universe once the FMV intro's done and gone. There's even a KOTOR-style conversation system, which if done right should give everything a proper RPG twist. You catch up on the life of Raynor by heading over to the official StarCraft II website.
