The thing that stops me from being good at Starcraft 2 is I can only manage a few minutes of furious finger work. Luckily, there's now hope for those of us without the stamina to sustain our armies: Rogue Star, a Starcraft 2 Arcade mod that transforms the game into a turn-based RPG. Take that, pro-gamers—you could be spending whole, luxurious minutes before activating your blink attacks.
"The prologue contains 30+ abilities, 60+ items, and 10 unique enemy types," explains the mod's creator in a
SC2 Arcade forum post
. Elsewhere, in
the mod's dedicated subreddit
, he reveals that while Rogue Star is single-player only right now, co-op and PvP will be "added in a later content patch". More classes are also planned.
The best part is that, because Blizzard
have made the Starcraft 2 Arcade free
, you can play the game regardless of whether you own the base RTS. All you need to do is
download the Arcade
, and search its games list for Rogue Star.
