UPDATE MAY 25, 2008:
The Baneling has been added to the Zerg units.
From watching the video, the look a lot like the infested Terran.
The Baneling

UPDATE MARCH 27, 2008:
The highly anticipated Zerg Section is now up and running.
Just Hydralisks and Mutalisks so far. Two familiar faces.
You can also check out the Zerg trailer in the movie section.
Sorry about the lack of update. SC2 has NOT been updating the RSS feed.

UPDATE JANUARY 8, 2008:
The Seige Tank, another familiar unit from SC1 has joined the Terran ranks. The most important part of this - it sounds like they got the same voice actor for his catch-phrases, which is bad ass.

UPDATE DECEMBER 17, 2007:
The Nomad
This is the "smaller cousin" of the SCV.
It's a building unit FOR the battlefield.
The nomad makes these little turret things (watch the action clip on the page) to assist your units in battle.
This also adds an observer-type unit to the Terran.

(I hope this means they're gonna start updating the site more often. This was the first in over a month.)

UPDATE NOVEMBER 5, 2007:
The Observer
Another familiar unit has been added to the Protoss section.

UPDATE OCTOBER 24, 2007:
The Sensor Tower
The thing that sets this aside from the SC1 turret is its ability to detect units through fog of war (labeled as little red exclamation points). However, the building description pointed out that this will open the door to many decoy strategies. A simple SCV would appear the same as the mighty Thor beyond the visible playing field.

UPDATE OCTOBER 5, 2007:
Carrier Has Arrived
Mothership + Carrier... I don't think anything will feel quite as gratifying.

UPDATE OCTOBER 4, 2007:
Calling all SC2 fanatics! Blizzard has just released a fan site builder full of templates, and all sorts of other website crap.
If I had the proper authority, I'd incorporate it into this thread!
You can check the stuff out here.



UPDATE SEPTEMBER 28, 2007:
The Battlecruiser has joined the Terran Units.
The more expensive units of Starcraft 2 have more desirable features, which was a fall back of the first game. The BC of SC1 shot very slowly and really only had the yamato gun. It could be easily overpowered. Players will be more obligated to build higher level units now that they do more than single shots.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 13, 2007:
A new Terran gameplay video has been added, you can download it here. I caution those with limited bandwidth - it's almost 700 MB.

EDIT:
Thanks to thewandererererrr, a YouTube link to the Terran gameplay video has been found:
Part 1: <a href=" target="_blank"><a href=" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=GcHeto_NSRo</a></a>

BONUS!
A video of a korean dude named moon playing as a Terran in an apparent comp stomp on SC2:
Part 1: <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=J160JBPtgJk" target="_blank"><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=J160JBPtgJk" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=J160JBPtgJk</a></a>

Thanks again.


Another interesting thing I found was that Blizzard has created Starcraft 2 Forums where gamers from everywhere can talk strats and make predictions. There's even a thread where you can ask questions to the developers. I found one of the stickied thread's fascinating. It's almost like an extension of the FAQ on the SC2 main site. Developers have been pretty good about answering questions from fans - you can check those out in this thread.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 6, 2007:
The Mothership has been added to the Protoss section. They had a lot of information about this in the gameplay video on launch day. You can view the Mothership information here, and some in-game footage of it here.

UPDATE AUGUST 30, 2007:
The Thor unit has been added to the Terran Section. You can view it's specs here. It looks as if the siege tank has finally met its match - or rather its replacement...

UPDATE AUGUST 23, 2007:
The Banshee flying unit has been added to the Terran Section. I had a lot of trouble digesting the spiffed up language format of the description, but it sounds like the banshees will be similar to wraiths, however, they will only be able to attack ground units.

UPDATE AUGUST 15, 2007:
The Dark Templar have joined the Protoss Units.
Also, in the action clip of the Dark Templar, the new probes are shown.

UPDATE AUGUST 4, 2007:
THE TERRANS HAVE ARRIVED!
<a href="http://www.starcraft2.com/features/terran/" target="_blank"><a href="http://www.starcraft2.com/features/terran/" target="_blank">http://www.starcraft2.com/features/terran/</a></a>

UPDATE JULY 19, 2007:
The mystery of the archon typo has been solved!
The new Twighlight Archon can be viewed in the Protoss Section. This unit will cost 2 High Templars OR 2 Dark Templars.

UPDATE JULY 13, 2007:
Five SC2 announcement videos have been added to the SC2 website video archive. You can check those out in the Movie Section.

UPDATE JULY 12, 2007:
Some extra Protoss unit sounds have been added to the site, you can check those out in the Protoss Section.

UPDATE JULY 9, 2007:
The Warp Ray, a Protoss air unit, has been added to the Protoss Section you can find the unit page here.

UPDATE JUNE 28, 2007:
The Colossus, a Protoss ground unit that can step up to higher ground, has been added to the Protoss Section you can find the unit page here.

UPDATE JUNE 22, 2007:
The Stargate has been added to the Protoss building collection in the Protoss Section. You can find this specific building here.

I recommend that a stickied thread is created for further information/updates on SC2.
Also, anyone who wants to receive immediate updates should add the SC2 RSS feed to their browser:
<a href="http://starcraft2.com/strings/en_us/rss.xml" target="_blank"><a href="http://starcraft2.com/strings/en_us/rss.xml" target="_blank">http://starcraft2.com/strings/en_us/rss.xml</a></a>

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Wow the stargate looks so freaking weird, although it actually looks like a warping portal which is basically what it's supposed to be so I guess it makes sense. It just looks kinda small.

Yeah, he doesn't understand. It's not your post count, it's MAKING YOUR POSTS COUNT!

Ye I think the new stargates look better.
And from the it also seems like U'll be able to see how far a unit production is by just looking at the building. Thats nice... for the enemy.

maybe the graphic for progress will be generic, eye candy, with no relevance to the actual unit

you know what I just realized...
since the demo will be at blizzon and people will see all (or some) of the other units, maybe after blizzcon they will put up the zerg and terran section on the website, finally!

unless of course, the demo is protoss on protoss only, in which case z and t will still be shrouded in mystery...crafty devils...

sorry for double post btw

well blizzard said that the multiplayer part of SC2 is functional and that all the races are playable so I bet T and Z will be at blizzcon.

Good idea, I'll sticky this. Much better than having a new thread every time there's an update lol. Just PM me if there's a new update added that you want to alert everyone to. Then I'll edit this first post with it later I suppose, or tidy it up.

stickied.

alright here's what I'm wondering:

in this screenshot,

http://www.infoceptor.com/wow/gallery/album35/screen8

the soul hunter that is on the bottom seems to be attacking some sort of mech

QUESTION: what is that terran unit that he's attacking??

You should try to play SC1 before SC2 comes out. Yeah yeah, the graphics suck, blah blah blah. But don't worry about it, its a great game.

Or at least read what happend in the first one to get some background on part 2. Maybe wikipedia has a page for it?

The Terran ground mech units from SC1 are as follows:
Vultures
Tanks (we're ruling this one out, because tanks are shown in this screen)
Goliath

Most likely, Blizzard is rolling out a new Terran unit with some old features, as well as some new ones to counter-balance the new Protoss features.

Looks like a Star Wars Snowspeeder with 2 rotating cannons on top of it.

What I want to see are some small base ramps like in the original Starcraft. Idk how the F I'm gonna block a Gundam rush or a Zling Rush without them.

also, are those reavers? They look like reavers.

E3 2007 Combat Units Interview
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22205.html

Info about Beta

He said in SC you require "3" HT to make a Archon, and in SC2 you only require 2
Now obviously this is a mistake so I'm pretty sure he meant to say
in SC you require 2 HT to make a Archon, and in SC2 it only requires "1"
