Infested Arena 3, like its predecessors, places four players in an arena setting whereby their objective is to survive each successive round. At the beginning of the match each player will get the opportunity to choose their Specialist (or Hero). Each Specialist is different and has a unique play style. The more Infested you kill the stronger you can make your specialist. Your Specialist will never die; instead, when your specialist reaches 0 health he goes into an incapacitated state. You must wait in this Incapacitated state for a duration of time before your specialist will get on his feet again. If all current players' Specialists get Incapacitated at the same time then the game will end in defeat.

Happy Mothers' day to those of you with children! If you're not a mother, make sure to wish her a Happy Mothers' Day, as you would not be here without her! :P.

Gradius, one of our good friends from SCLegacy, has finally released his singleplayer campaign, StarCraft: Subjection. Subjection is a fully voice-acted 8 mission singleplayer campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty that features four difficulty levels of Brood War style gameplay. Search for the keyword "Subjection" on the North American or European server on Battle.net.
In addition to the above trailer, he's released the full playthrough as a machinima (as it's all voice-acted). If you prefer to just kick back and watch a StarCraft movie, you may do so below!

Congrats to anyone who got BlizzCon tickets in the first batch! If you were unable to get any tickets, there will be a second phase of tickets going on sale on Saturday! Also worth noting, the map pool for the 2013 ladder season 3 will be changing.
SquadCraft is a highly strategic and tactical game. Players will alternate between commanding troops and customizing them (similar to XCom), with plenty of equipment, strategies, and game settings provide tons of replayability.

PSA from Sixen: Interested in Audio Development? Check out our new subforum for it! :).
Your brood mother awakens on an unknown planet due to terran activity, but doesn’t remember how she got there. You'll have to regain strength with various evolutions and abilities in order to take back territory from the enemy. As you take back territory, creep will spread over the zones and allow you to establish forward bases for your army.
You can check out Zero's video below. Remember that this is beta footage, so everything is subject to change!
Zero is looking for beta testers for the map, so be sure to take a look at the project page here! The map name on Battle.net is "Zeros Open Beta RPG" if you want to check it out.

Dogfighters is a third person team action game with a focus on aerial combat. The game works entirely through a physics engine, allowing players to take command of their very own ships. Each team has to take down the enemy's bunker, which powers the forcefield protecting their base. Bunkers are tough targets and can shoot down your missiles before they make contact, so you'll need to help the ground troops who assist your team in destroying it. Ships are customize-able and can be fitted with several different weapons and features, each with advantages and disadvantages.
It's currently still a work-in-progress, so remember that everything you see in the video is still subject to change.
Make sure you check out the thread and leave your feedback here!
Also be sure to check out Blizzard's most recent Arcade Highlight!
