Blizzard Reveals the Terran Banshee for Starcraft II
The official Starcraft II site has just been updated with a new unit for the game, the Terran Banshee. The new air combat units are similar to the Wraiths of the previous game — able to cloak and fly around — but with more powerful air-to-ground attacks. Rather than sporting the laser cannons of the Wraiths, these units are equipped with devastating missiles that provide firepower that is comparable to a Siege Tank. The trade off for this though is that the Banshee has absolutely no air-to-air combat abilities, making it extremely vulnerable to flying units. It looks like the folks over at Blizzard are on the right track to creating a balanced game that will provide an in-depth strategy experience.
