StarCraft 2 art tools now released to aspiring modders

StarCraft 2 (Yes, really)

By on September 6, 2013 at 9:27 am

If you’ve ever wanted to use the exact same tools that Blizzard themselves use to create 3D art for StarCraft 2, then you’re in luck! Blizzard have now released those tools to the general public, that they may extend and expand on the StarCraft 2 modding scene.

The tools involve a plugin for 3DS Max 2011, so you’ll need to have a copy of that and StarCraft 2, but other than that, you’re good to go. They’re available in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions: grab the one for you from Battle.net here.

The picture you see above is just one of the wacky creations whipped up by the art tool beta testers before launch, creating an entire military-themed RTS instead. Go on, get in!

Damn! I thought they were giving away a standalone 3D suite for a second.
