    WARNING: This mod will NOT run at a playable level on weaker computers!

    Why different versions?

    This mod has been split into two seperate Arcade maps, each containing 2 of the 4 arenas. This was done due to performance concerns. Otherwise the versions are identical.

    ABRIDGED GAMEPLAY DEMONSTRATION:

    Features:

    • Advanced graphical fidelity
    • Indepth third person shooter mechanics
    • 5 playable classes
    • 4 gamemodes
    • 4 arenas
    • Experience true warfare through countless warfare events
    • An ideal introduction to the map through "Beginner Mode"
    • 4 player co-op
    • Voice Acting
    • Playable Vikings - upgradable to Archangels

    Credits and thanks

    Ah Psionic warfare... that game on the arcade that I really truly wish my crappy laptop could handle, because It just looks like loads of fun.

    I am exactly on the same situation... I tested it moths ago and the biggest problem was the total absence of a tutorial/beginner mode, but now he added it as a lot of us suggested.

    • Michael Bay Action + TPS + Zerg/Blood/Splatter + Viking Mech = Shut Up and take my 5 Stars
    • I will test it ASAP.

    This game is an anomaly of SC2 and so well made and taking care off. AMAZING! AMAZING!

    This game should come with a warning not for low end PCs and low end VGAs.

    This is awesome. No other word fits, surprised you used an adjutant instead of a ghost/spectre.

    Well yeah I think an Adjutant makes for a much more interesting class than a ghost/spectre. Especially seeing how all the classes in Total Destruction are psionic users.

    What did you link there to? The link seems to be broken.

    Good call, with a mod like this some people will always have perfomance issues. I put a warning at the top of the thread.

    Anyways, anybody up for maybe having an arranged SC2mapsters play session of this mod? Nothing is more awesome than playing this in an organized team.

    I shared this on Youtube, Twitter and a few other places. Sent a link to an acquaintance of mine who works at Blizzard, as well as a few StarCraft 2 streamers. I'd expect an e-mail from Blizzard soon enough. Can't promise, but I think they might feature you on the Arcade website. ;)

    By the way, so far, I've already gotten a few replies asking for co-op.

    EDIT: And if you ever do need extra classes, you could always add a Ghost and/or a Spectre, given that those already have hi-poly models made for them.

    Wow thats awesome, thanks alot! Lets hope something comes out of it.

    Well, as for the classes, I wont make more, this mod is 100% finished now. I wont ever touch it again exept for bug fixes. Im actually kinda glad that it is done now.

    Awww, and here I was hoping you'd use the campaign cinematic models for Zerg Units. :P

    The forum is getting repaired, I forgot direct links do not work. Go to the forum > SC Universe lore forum > the stickied thread "Unit Pictures"

    What the fuck did I just watch?

    That was an amazing introduction. Jesus its like a blockbuster video game. Blizzard should for real feature you and your game. I can't wait to play it and I'm not big on FPS, but that crashing medivac gave me chills.

    Presentation is certainly nice, but in MP it probably still controls like ass, due to how the engine is set up. Input lag aplenty, same shit that made Project Vector and TSOF near unplayable.

    Good bit of fun though, shame the engine screw it up so much.

    I can't find a way to invert the y-axis of the mouse?

    I can't play a 3rd person shooter without an inverted mouse option...

    you got featured on Kotaku and boy oh boy i tried this today and its freakin awesome, makes me wish Blizz didnt kill SC Ghost but who cares we got this mod; Heres a +1 rep or like or whatever, i hope we get more updates in the future

    Seems like a really cool mod, but I can't get my targeting (shift key) to work?? I can't get out the tutorial area where it wants me to kill 3 bots to proceed. Everything else seems to work, moving, melee, psionic, secondary attacks (on some classes, not others..) I've tried left shift, right shift, a completely different keyboard, tried resetting hotkeys etc. Anyone got an idea? Also trying this on Mac if that's somehow an OS specific bug.

    Wow Crainy this is amazing man! I haven't gotten the chance to try it yet but it looks visually stunning!

    WinterStarcraft is streaming your game to 1000+ people!!! Might be all bots, but I think its actually people.
