New StarCraft 2 Mod Is Like Rocket League With Warcraft Characters
Check out this new Rocket League-inspired StarCraft Arcade game.
With Rocket League proving to be very popular on both PC and PlayStation 4, it was only a matter of time before it began to inspire other projects. Just a few weeks after its release, we already have a new StarCraft II mod that takes clear inspiration from Psyonix's soccer-with-cars game.
As demonstrated in the video below from Bounty4321, Aqua League is a StarCraft Arcade game that features the basics of Rocket League: There's a rectangular arena with two teams competing to knock a ball into the opposing team's goal. Players can collect boost power-ups scattered around to move more quickly, and it's possible to kill other players, removing them from play for a few seconds.
There are some obvious differences, including the fact that you're playing as one of two Warcraft creatures--Naga or Revenant--in a pool of water. In a nice touch, instead of creating an explosion when you score, a tidal wave shoots out across the map.
StarCraft Arcade previously required you own at least one version of StarCraft II in order to play its games, but as of last year, it's now freely available to everyone. However, Aqua League is said to still be in development and hasn't yet been released, so you won't find it on the Arcade just yet.
