StarCraft II adds three official custom maps

Blizzard has now officially released three of its promised four new free custom maps for StarCraft II players.

The three maps, originally announced and shown to the public at Blizzcon last year, have been in beta testing for a few months, but are now available for all to download, complete with new achievements for players to unlock and display proudly. The achievements for each map are listed on the game’s official web site.

The custom maps include StarJewled, based loosely on PopCap’s puzzle game Bejeweled. Another is Left 2 Die with players building defense structures to keep out Zerg at night. The third map is Aiur Chef, where players collect different components and outrace others to make meals. Really.

We are still awaiting Blizzard DOTA, the fourth custom map that was also announced and shown at Blizzcon in October.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
