Blizzard are taking a fresh stab at a controversial concept with the latest StarCraft II update, offering a selection of community-built mods at premium prices. These premium Arcade maps will launch with the 4.3.0 update, finally bringing Blizzard’s promise of a StarCraft II marketplace to fruition after nearly a decade.

ARK Star is a turn-based, Tactical Rpg all about the Protoss, following a team of templars on a mission to destroy a new weapon. You’ll level up and unlock new abilities for your squad, uncover and craft new loot, and customize your squad for maximum effectiveness. Creator Daniel “Pirate” Altman says on Reddit that a single playthrough is roughly 3-4 hours, and there’s an option for a new game plus playthrough.
