You can finally play the game 20 years later.
Remember when Blizzard was working on a StarCraft third-person shooter spinoff titled StarCraft Ghost back in the early 2000s?
Around two decades later, an early playable Xbox build of StarCraft Ghost has apparently leaked online. Twitter user Andrew Borman shared screenshots of the leaked build on his account, though he claimed that they were taken from anonymous Xbox forums.

Several people have uploaded gameplay footage of this playable StarCraft Ghost build on YouTube as well, some of which have been taken down at the time of writing. However, a high-quality video by a user named Delso Bezerra is still up and running, which you can check out below.
The footage shows StarCraft Ghost protagonist Nova in action, running around and shooting aliens in what seems to be a straightforward and generic shooter from the early 2000s with the StarCraft brand slapped onto it.
According to Kotaku, a source has reportedly told them that the playable build of StarCraft Ghost is from a leaked devkit of the game. If you’re really interested in trying it out for yourself, head on over to this link to download it. However, do so at your own risk.
