Starcraft Universe Kickstarts its open beta

You may recall WoW Insider 's sister site Massively posting about the fan-made Starcraft MMO -- Starcraft Universe -- back in February. An intrepid group of fan developers had released the Starcraft Universe prologue, and now they need your help via the ever-popular fundraising site, Kickstarter.

StarCraft Universe tells a story set in an alternate reality, 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.

StarCraft Universe (SCU) is a game mod (Note: it is not a standalone game) for StarCraft II. Originally named World of StarCraft, SCU focuses on telling an epic story and intense combat action, as well as multi-player raiding experiences. StarCraft Universe will be released as a series of custom games published through Battle.net.
