The upcoming updates for "Starcraft 2" are reportedly very comprehensive and include two new maps for players to explore and enjoy. The first map is called Miner Evacuation and the second is called Dead Of Night.

Miner Evacuation is basically comprised of challenges and obstacles in a planet full of infested units. The concept of the map-based challenge basically takes after the name of the map -- players have to successfully transport the miners and ensue safe evacuation by protecting their shuttles.
