SC2: Protoss Stargate revealed
More and more StarCraft 2 content is being revealed these days. Now, the Protoss Stargate has been made public for you to feast your eyes on.
Last time we saw the Phoenix enter the list of Protoss units and buildings. Now we get to see the Stargate, along with a cool screenshot.

It was a small outpost: a nexus, assimilator, and a couple of gateways. Commander didn't want to risk marines against the cannons they had dug in on the cliffs so me and the boys got brought in for a little death from above. First raid, we got a bunch of them little worker probes and lit up the pylons powering the cannon. They tore us up pretty bad, though, so we headed back for repairs.
By the time we came back, it'd all changed. Two big stargates were there, and Protoss flyers were popping out of those big hoops like bees from a hive. We got hit every which way, and I only made it home on one engine and half a wing. Couple of minutes later, protoss air hit our base hard; I'm starting to think they only let me get away so they could follow me back...
