A new Replay feature includes options like Watch with Others and Take Command.

The observer user interface is now also customizable.

The general matchmaking system for Starcraft II is also improved with the Training Mode, designed to give newcomers a few points before they face human players, Unranked Play and an option to battle the improved game Artificial Intelligence.

The new Players Near You option also allows the gamer to find players on the local network and set up matches with them.

Blizzards states, “The background download for Wings of Liberty patch 2.0.4 was activated on February 9. We strongly encourage all players to leave the launcher running for an extended period of time at some point over the next few days to ensure that you’re ready to play when the patch goes live.”
