Starcraft Universe MMORPG wants to improve itself through Kickstarter funding

The long-in-development StarCraft 2 MMO mod, StarCraft Universe, has finally launched a Kickstarter campaign in hope of raising some funding.

The mod, originally called World of Starcraft, was released via Battle.net in February by Upheaval Arts, and while it didn’t feature multiplayer, the single-player build allows the developers to ensure the core systems work properly.

“The objective of this game is to experience the universe of Starcraft from a third person view and master challenges and missions. The focus of the game is to have a team of players/friends creating/customizing their own hero character which they use to battle together through enemy forces and powerful bosses,” said Upheaval Arts.

The campaign is seeking $80,000, which will allow the free-to-play game get the infrastructure it needs, as well as provide backers with some extra goodies, such as virtual pets and a digital soundtrack.

The mod features custom maps, eight playable classes, advanced character customisation, mounted vehicle combat, and a uniquely built custom physics engine.

The mod requires Starcraft 2, but because you can get the Starcraft 2: Starter Edition for free, there’s nothing else you need to get going in some Starcraft MMO action.
