The campaigns will have comic style cutscenes, seen a bit here:

  3. I really have high hopes for this. Fingers crossed that they execute this well. Though I am happy about the minimap changes.

    I hope they fix the ridiculous gun sounds.
    The Deathstar sounds like a potato gun and the rest of my tanks sound like 2 frying pans smacking together when you fire them.
