Steam Modder Brings Starcraft to Civilization V

What's world domination without some Terran, Zerg, and Protoss units?

If you're anything like most of us at The Escapist, you may have put a few (hundred) hours into Sid Meier's Civilization V and its expansions. After so many turns of war, diplomacy, and establishing trade routes, perhaps the game is getting a little stale. So what better way to spice up a three-year-old game than by adding Starcraft II units, as Steam modder Epic has done?

Calling the creation "Heroes of Starcraft, Epic adds Terran, Zerg, and Protoss species, as well as ten Hero units, to Civilization V. The Steam community page description breaks down the mod as thus:

Terran (Jim Raynor)
UA: Receive Culture and Science boost when hire new Hero.
Heroes: Jim Raynor, Horace Warfield and Ariel Hanson.
Ariel Hanson has a special Trait Medic that can heal multiple targets.
Siege Tank - Melee unit that can setup and do range attack.

Zerg (Sarah Kerrigan)
UA: Skills deal 10% more damage and 10% of Skill damage converted to Culture.
Heroes: Sarah Kerrigan, Izsha and Abathur.
Sarah Kerrigan has a specail Trait that her Skills burn all targets.

Protoss (Zeratul)
UA: Spells deal 25% more damage and 10% of Spell damage converted to Faith.
Heroes: Zeratul, Tassadar and Selendis.

New wonder Korhal Palace unlock Hero Nova.
Nova can use a new ability "Nuke Strike" that damage large area but has longer cooldown.

To play Heroes of Starcraft in Civilization V, you'll need the Brave New World expansion and a previous mod of Epic's, "Heroes of Might and Wisdom V3." And sure, you'll just play for a few turns. Just one more turn. Just one more...
