    StarCraft II StarCraft Universe (Fan made mmorpg using the SC2 mod tools)

    After five years in development, the KickStarter-backed Starcraft Universe developed by Upheaval Arts, an MMO built using the Starcraft 2 modding tools, has finally hit open beta.

    I originally talked about it here in this thread :

    https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/10...d-of-Starcraft

    Main features:

    - Up to 6-player multiplayer raids.
    - Fully voice-acted characters and dialogue.
    - Procedurally-generated storylines and missions.
    - Command and crew a ship with other players, Star Trek-style.
    - 8 playable classes, Terran or Protoss.
    - Vehicle combat.
    - Fly and explore distant planets with your squad or alone.

    StarCraft Universe (SCU) is a game mod and is played though the StarCraft II Arcade on Battle.net. Blizzard has given the thumbs up to the project.

    Interesting. Does it require one to have all three parts of the game?

    Nope, just need one part of the game. Heck you can even download the starter edition for free, and play this game.

    Just open Starcraft II and log into Battle.net. After logging in, navigate to the Arcade by using the menu at the top of the screen. In the search bar on the top right, type "SC Universe". Click on one of the maps and press "Play".

    I would recommend to start off doing "SC Universe: Prologue 1 (Singleplayer Basic Tutorial)"

    For those that don't know, this game is now officially launched. It's a SC2 mod, but you only need the free trial version to access it in the arcade.

    It plays as a different and stand-alone game. Only way to make this possible was to do a mod, otherwise Blizzard would have stopped it due to the assets in use.
