StarCraft Universe online RPG surpasses Kickstarter funding goal

StarCraft Universe, the online role-playing game mod for StarCraft 2 given Blizzard's blessing, reached its Kickstarter funding goal today.

As of this writing, the crowdfunding campaign has earned $80,097 of its $80,000 goal from 1,535 backers with 33 hours remaining.

The free-to-play mod has been in development for two years and will be released through, the launcher for Blizzard games like Diablo 3, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and World of Warcraft. Developer Upheaval Arts is planning for an open beta in late 2013 or early 2014.

Update: We've amended the article to refer to StarCraft Universe as an online RPG, not an MMORPG as originally written.
