    Xb Playable build of Starcraft Ghost the canceled PS2/Xbox game has leaked



    Hereís something I didnít expect to see today: New gameplay footage of StarCraft Ghost. The third-person shooter had a rocky and well-known development history before being officially canceled by Blizzard, something confirmed back in 2014. Now an early Xbox build seems to have leaked out and popped up online.

    Andrew Borman posted some screenshots on Twitter but quickly pointed out that he had nothing to do with the leak and that the screens were posted anonymously in some Xbox groups earlier.

    But, someone else, who seems to have access to this leaked Xbox build, uploaded more than just screenshots. YouTube user, Leers Meneses, uploaded a 13-minute clip of gameplay from the third mission of what looks to be the same build seen in the screenshots Borman posted.

    The video was uploaded early Sunday morning, in the US, and shows some basic shooting and jumping gameplay. It looks like a lot of the standard shooters and action games we got back in the early 2000s, which might be another reason this game never got finished and released.

    According to the uploader of that gameplay clip, this build is from an Xbox dev kit and was recently uploaded. In the footage we see Meneses using a modded Xbox 360 to access the game. He also says that the first two missions arenít working properly. Folks over at ResetEra are also sharing this clip and theorizing that it came from a devkit leak.

    Not long after this video was uploaded to YouTube, someone else seems to have posted footage of a different mission, but it caused the uploaderís Xbox to crash. Another user, Delso Bezerra, also uploaded some high-quality footage of what appears to be this same Xbox build of Ghost.

    StarCraft: Ghost was first announced way back in 2002 for the Gamecube, Xbox and PS2. After numerous delays, and different developers working on it, it was eventually canceled sometime around 2005 or 2006.

    No download links for this build are available just yet, but knowing the internet I assume a playable build of this game might become easily accessible some time in the near future.

    (Update: 3:00 PM EST) Twitter user DaysAfterRodeo contacted me with a link to what they claim is the build that people are downloading. He explained that this leaked build is from a dev kit and shared a screenshot of a dev kit with StarCraft: Ghost on it. So it seems this is out there and we are probably going to being learning a lot more about the game in the coming days and weeks.

    I thought that it was originally announced for the GameCube.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    As soon as I run across an archive, I may reassemble my Xbox and test it out.

    They needed to have the Zerglings rushing in like the Hord in Halo. One Zergling at a time kind of defeats how they attack in the RTS. The game lacks the feeling of urgency with such a lack of actual gunfire.

    It looks like a million other games of that generation. Pretty mediocre. They needed to do more with that ass like while the game wasn't good, PNO3 was memorable at least for the butt dance. Ghost needed some personality and doesn't look like it had any.

    I'll have to check this out later. I was really into StarCraft: Brood War when this was announced, and this was one of the few times I was looking forward to and following the progress of a game when it was announced. I remember holding out hope that it would eventually be released until it was officially canceled.
