After more than decade of waiting, StarCraft fans will finally get to return to the StarCraft Universe and lead Jim Raynor and his Raiders quest for vengeance in StarCraft 2 : Wings of Liberty.

From Blizzard’s Battle.net blog:

The struggle for justice in a tumultuous corner of the universe known as the Koprulu sector continues. You will once again find yourself at the center of the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying legions of veteran, upgraded, and new unit types. Direct the exploits of marshal-turned-rebel leader Jim Raynor, meeting both familiar faces and new heroes along the way. Tailor your experience to suit your playing style by choosing your own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades throughout the 29-mission campaign.
