Blizzard has released three custom maps for Starcraft 2. Called Aiur Chef, StarJeweled, and Left 2 Die, the maps are available to players for beta testing. Blizzard acknowledged that the maps are still being developed and that no firm final release date is available. However, devs wanted players to get a first look opportunity to try them out and to provide the team with valuable feedback.
Mode: Free For All
Players: Up to 8
Each round of Aiur Chef features a theme ingredient and three succulent recipes that play upon its unique flavor. Before you can master these themed dishes, though, you'll first need to scout across the map and collect a variety of tasty ingredients (including the theme ingredient). Each recipe has its own set of required ingredients, listed in the recipe menu in the upper-left of your screen, which can be picked up off the ground or acquired by killing specific creatures. Don't get too greedy when loading up on ingredients, though -- inventory space is limited, so you'll want to focus on collecting ingredients for one recipe at a time.
Read each map's summary and check out several screens on the Starcraft II blog site.
