Blizzard Deploys StarCraft II's First Official Custom Map

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty players shouldn't be wanting for custom-made maps—and wildly different game types—thanks to the game's Galaxy Editor. But an officially released Blizzard-made map is worth getting a little excited about.

Blizzard has released "Burning Tide" for StarCraft II today via Battle.net, featuring the same rising lava tides seen in the single-player campaign's storyline. Remember "Devil's Playground"? It's just like that! It's a 3v3 map that sees StarCraft II players competitively racing toward a specific resource amount. It makes resource management in space that much more exciting.

Want it? Grab it via the custom games list in the StarCraft II game client.
