Earlier this year a fanmade mod for StarCraft 2 was launched called StarCraft Universe: Chronicles of Fate. It was impressive in a couple of different ways, one of which was how the developers managed to transform an RTS game into an MMO, and secondly the fact that Blizzard sanctioned this project meaning that the developers got the blessings from the company and didn’t have to worry about Blizzard shutting them down. Well the developers, Upheaval Arts, has announced a Kickstarter campaign for the game in which they are seeking funding of $80,000 in order to complete the game.
The MMO’s storyline will be an alternative ending to the Wings of Liberty game and “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.” The game will feature 8 different classes including the Marine, Ghost, Medic, Firebat, Zealot, Dark Templar, Preserver, and High Templar.
The developers have also announced additional features such as customizable characters, weapons, mounts, voice-acted cutscenes, and varying difficultly levels. For more information about the game or to pledge your donation, hit up its Kickstarter page for the details!
