Starcraft 2 modified into … Diablo 2?!

One of the most impressive transitions devised in the Starcraft 2 Map Editor to date, modder Egodbout has decided to convert the popular RTS strategy into another popular Blizzard title, Diablo 2.

The Starcraft 2 toolbox is incredibly flexible and allows for  a lot of maneuverability and creativity. This has allowed the modder to recreate the strategy game with the toolkit.

Take a look at this in action…

It’s noticeably Starcraft, but tell me that isn’t impressive?

V 1.0 is out now and playable details. It can be downloaded here.

Here’s what he’s been able to include…

  • 6x Heros
