First Official Starcraft 2 Custom Map. Yes.

It's Friday, so time to quickly nose around and see if there are any key stories we've missed. And Blizzard releasing their first official custom map for Starcraft 2? That's a key story. Not an enormous key, like the one Superman uses to keep his Fortress of Solitude locked, but certainly some manner of key. Perhaps one for a padlock for a bike or something. ANYWAY! The map's called Burning Tide and is basically a 3v3 map riffing off the Devil's Playground mission from the campaign, with all the fun rising and lowering lava flows and desperate rushing to get Ore. Or, as I prefer to call it "Space-Iron". You'll find it in your Custom Games folder in Starcraft II if you just play now.
