Blizzard reveals StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void

Next chapter of StarCraft II will be a standalone product

Posted on

Blizzard Entertainment has formally announced StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.

A standalone game, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void continues the story where the first expansion, Heart of the Swarm, left off, with a new campaign that brings the sci-fi saga to a conclusion. Protoss legends Artanis and Zeratul attempt to unite their race in an intergalactic fight for survival against an ancient evil from the Void that threatens the universe. The fates of Terran hero Jim Raynor and Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades, also hang in the balance.

Archon Mode, a competitive multiplayer mode unveiled at BlizzCon, lets two players share control over a single base and units as they take on an enemy duo in multiplayer action. By sharing the responsibility of commanding troops and managing resources, players can focus on their own areas of the battle and execute more intricate strategies.

Allied Commanders is another gameplay mode new to StarCraft II. In this objective-based, cooperative experience, players can team up and take on the roles of powerful commanders from the StarCraft saga. Each commander offers unique abilities and upgrades and bestows special bonuses on their armies. Players are able to battle through a series of special scenarios together, leveling up their commanders' capabilities as they progress.

Multiplayer battles in Legacy of the Void will be fought with an array of new units, as well as upgrades to veteran forces. Zerg swarms will welcome the return of the Lurker, a classic creature from the original StarCraft. The Protoss field a new weapon called the Disruptor, which can use massive energy spikes to wreak havoc through swaths of ground forces. And the Terrans have engineered some new technology, such as Tactical Jump, which allows their Battlecruisers to teleport to any location on the battlefield.

Blizzard is developing StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void for simultaneous release on Windows and Macintosh.
