Year 2488. After three years of fighting across the sector, the Guild Wars are winding down and the Kel-Morian Combine is losing ground on every front. All signs point to an inevitable victory for the Confederacy.


Out of nowhere, Confederate outposts and key facilities on the strategically important colony of Sonyan are hit by a series of well-coordinated raids and bombings. These attacks are carried out by mercenaries believed to be contracted by the Kel-Morians. Confederate forces are placed on high alert and troops are diverted to Sonyan from neighboring colonies. Tensions are rising on some of the Confederate-occupied fringe worlds while Confederate intelligence is scrambling to get a read on the situation...



What is this?


A single-player campaign for Starcraft 2 with a story taking place during the Guild Wars, before the events of the original Starcraft. Missions alternate between classic RTS focused on map control and squad-based tactical gameplay. Runs on a tailored version of SCMRmod.


Contains mature language and violence.




  • 13 missions planned (+ 3 cutscene maps)
  • different mixtures of real-time strategy and squad-based tactics
  • Three customized terran factions
  • Three difficulty levels
  • Loadout / level-up system - choose different perks and abilities
  • Story tied into the Starcraft universe
  • press-key-to-continue dialogue system that lets you read at your own pace
  • plenty of characters, backstory and optional reading



Early access version with most maps now available.


Certain maps are split into smaller sections. There is no checkpoint system in place yet, so it is recommended to save often, especially on these maps.

Known issues / things not yet implemented


  • Demolishers and Stingers can lose ammo without firing their weapons if another order is issued as they are about to attack
  • Briefing Replay function not yet implemented
  • Briefing Skip works somewhat awkwardly, but it's safe to use and won't break anything
  • Stats screen - all of the mission statistics aren't necessarily 100% accurate
