While games like Warcraft and StarCraft are pretty great games on their own, sometimes people tend to forget that they both offer the ability to make mods and custom games using the map editor. In fact one of the most popular mods to come out of Warcraft’s map editor is none other than DotA, which has since spawned a standalone sequel in DotA 2.
That being said, it seems that a fan has managed to take StarCraft 2’s modding tools to the next level by recreating Diablo 2 within the game itself. Yup, you read that right, it seems that someone has managed to recreate an action RPG game within an FPS game and from what we can tell from the video, it looks pretty damn good.
It also looks pretty damn accurate in the assets as far as we’re concerned, not to mention that since this is also largely based on the StarCraft 2 engine, it looks as though Diablo 2 has been given a much-needed boost in graphics. Some might even argue that this could be the sequel that we deserve, but that’s just debate for another day.
Now since this mod exists within StarCraft 2, we doubt it will run into any legal issues like the rogue World of Warcraft server as gamers will need a copy of StarCraft 2 to play it. As it stands, the mod is also in its alpha stages but you can see it in action in the video above. More details can also be found on its Patreon page.
