With the news that another swag of StarCraft II players have been banned for hacking, it’s not without a sense of irony that Blizzard have chosen to reveal the collection of in-game cheat codes that they tucked away inside the game.
These codes can only be used in single-player mode, so they won’t mess with other people. To access them, it’s a simple matter of pressing enter while playing a game, and then typing the code into the console.
But they come with a warning!
While most of the codes are just for fun, they will almost always prevent additional achievements being gained while you play. To get around this, make sure you keep a save file from before you start experimenting, or just be careful. I don’t want to hear about anyone missing out on finishing the game “properly” and missing out on an achievement just because they wanted five million credits back in the first level!
So – it might not be WikiLeaks, but these codes could have some amazing effects on the worlds of StarCraft II.
