Blizzard releases Ghostly movie

See Nova in action for the first time

Blizzard has released a trailer of in-game footage taken from StarCraft: Ghost, the PS2, Xbox and Cube tactical action title announced at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Ghost puts players in the role of elite stealth unit Nova, as she uses her sophisticated arsenal of physical and psionic abilities to take out targets. The DivX format video weighs in at 13.1MB (with a 33.9MB QuickTime version also on offer for Mac users), and shows mostly in-game footage of Nova racing around, sliding down ladders, sneaking around sci-fi environments slicing and dicing hulking footsoldiers. You can find it on Blizzard's excellent Ghost website, which has been up since the original announcement.
