Starcraft MMO is only $80,000 from becoming a reality

StarCraft Univers logoThe developers of the long-awaited Starcraft MMO have begun a Kickstarter campaign to finish development of the game. Upheaval Arts is shooting to raise $80,000 for a beta release of Starcraft Universe, and the reach goals include PvP zones, an Act II of the game, and new regions to explore.

Starcraft Universe

The developers of the MMO released a prologue mod earlier this year named Starcraft Universe: Chronicles of Fate. The mod was solo-oriented but introduced players to the concepts of the game, including playable classes and character customization.

According to the Kickstarter page, there will be eight classes (four Terran, four Protoss) available to play, as well as customizable weapons, crafting systems, and vehicle combat. The game will include fully voiced cutscenes as well as music. If fundraisers hit the $100,000 “reach” goal, the developers will add Zerg character classes as well.

Once the Starcraft Universe mod is released, the creators state that players will not need to have purchased a full version of Starcraft II. All they’ll need is the “starter edition,” which is a free download from Blizzard, according to Kotaku. The estimated delivery time for the game, per the Kickstarter page, is January 2014.
