StarHack, a project that has been in the works for quite a while now, has just released its beta version on Battle.net in North America. StarHack is a sleek-looking StarCraft 2 custom game that's based on Diablo's gameplay mechanics and style, but uses StarCraft 2 items and models. Here's a video of the game in action.
As the mod is still in beta, all of the areas and characters that will be available aren't in the game yet. However, once it's all complete the game will feature vendors, an inventory system, random generated dungeons, a minimap with real-time locations, four classes, 18 skills per class with a mix of active and passive skills, and support for up to 8 players.
I haven't had the chance to jump on and try the map for myself, but it looks and sounds exceptionally awesome. If you want to play StarHack just hop on to StarCraft 2, go to multiplayer and select "Create Game." Once there check the "Popular" and "Co-op Vs. AI" menu options and search for StarHack in the search bar. It will pop up and you'll be able to play.
