If you’ve been paying attention you may remember that a clever user-created mod for StarCraft II surfaced that virtually transformed the game into a full fledged MMO. A the time of its original unveiling this mod was to be called World of StarCraft. However, not long after the unveil video surfaced Blizzard claimed copyright and the video was quickly taken down. Luckily, it was not their intention to shut down the project entirely but instead to discuss a name change.
Well, the mod has officially swapped names and will now be known as StarCraft Universe. The mod’s developer, Ryan Winzen, also took the time to give us some insight into the game.
According to Winzen, he is looking to give to give players of the mod the ability to link up with up to 12 players on a single map, customize gear based on accrued loot, save their characters and choose from a variety of different player classes. Sounds like a pretty hefty order considering this mod is being entirely developed by a single person. Let’s hope he gets everything done.
