SC Universe: Beyond Koprulu (Limited Open Beta)

Over five years ago, myself, a creative developer, and Philipp Meyer, a brilliant programmer, began developing a ‘World of StarCraft’ prototype using the StarCraft II Engine. Neither of us knew of each other’s projects, until one day we discovered one another and joined forces to build a small team, beginning work on what we wanted to be the biggest mod ever made… Not just a mod. A game. A complete transformation of the way StarCraft was played; Something the entire Blizzard community dreamed of for years.

We wanted to combine the third person action RPG elements of World of WarCraft, the combat mechanics of Diablo, and the starship mechanics of FTL with the StarCraft setting. We wanted the game to be completely voice acted with a unique story, custom art assets, and a fresh musical score. We wanted it to open with a breathtaking CG cinematic, inspired by Blizzard Entertainment’s dedication to high production values.

And so our small group set out to do what many said we were crazy to do, what others said we would never finish, and what some said we would completely fail at… But there were those throughout the globe who believed in us, backed us, and bought us the time we needed to deliver on our promises. Today we announce the Open Beta of StarCraft Universe: Beyond Koprulu, and the full launch slated to release one month from now!

To all those who believed in us and helped us along the way, we say thank you. SCU would not have been possible without you. We look forward to seeing you all… in the worlds… of StarCraft. ~Kreation

PS. A special note to our Kickstarter backers. Thank you for being patient with us. We have added mineral rewards to each Hero you log in with if you verified your S code with us, based on your backer level.

      I played the first part of the prologue last night. It was really fun.
      I am looking foward to the final product. Thanks Upheaval Arts!

      Indeed, but it's surely a pleasant surprise.
