Today Blizzard Entertainment released the first new official custom map for its insanely popular RTS StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Dubbed ‘Burning Tide,’ the new map pits two teams of three against each other in a race to reach a set number of resources.

Think that sounds easy enough? Well, of course there’s a twist. Much like the campaign level ‘The Devil’s Playground,’ Burning Tide features periodic lava flood which interrupt your resource gathering.

In order to get your hands on this new map all you have to do it log into StarCraft II and join a Custom Game that’s running Burning Tide. You’ll automatically download it and be ready to rock.

Personally I’ve always liked these little custom maps. They provide a nice break from the seriousness of league play. When I’m pulling my hair out because my partner and I are trapped in the Limbo of Rank 1 Platinum, I’ll often take a break to unwind with some custom games.

What about you guys? Do you ever venture into the realm of Custom Games, or do you stick to league play? Does Burning Tide sound like something you’d be interested in?  Would you like to see more maps like this from Blizzard? Let us know what you think with a comment below.
