StarCraft Universe Open Beta Begins

Posted Jul 28, 2016 by Suzie Ford

StarCraft Universe Open Beta Begins

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. The Starcraft Universe team raised nearly $90k via KickStarter and will continue to support the project through an Indiegogo campaign.

StarCraft Universe tells a story set in an alternate reality, where the ending of StarCraft II:Wings of Liberty has a grim conclusion for Kerrigan. Without the Queen of Blades to stop the hybrid’s assault, the protoss are overwhelmed and defeated. In this reality, what would the survivors of these shattered worlds do? StarCraft Universe tells this story.

StarCraft Universe (SCU) is a game mod (Note: it is not a standalone game) for StarCraft II. Originally named World of StarCraft, SCU focuses on telling an epic story, intense combat action, and space exploration. StarCraft Universe is played though the StarCraft II Arcade on Battle.net.
