Blizzard has used the thoroughly appropriate setting of BlizzCon to release a whole lot of information about StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void, the conclusion to the StarCraft 2 trilogy. This standalone title will introduce two new co-operative gameplay modes (Archon and Allied Commander modes); along with new single player campaign missions and changes to all factions.
Just to be up front about this, I really don’t know a whole lot about StarCraft 2. IncGamers does have a correspondent attending BlizzCon though, so there will be some more in-depth and detailed impressions of StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void to read at a later date.
For now, you’ve just got me and a whole lot of videos explaining the changes for each faction. Here’s what’ll be going on with the Terran in Legacy of the Void:
This is what Protoss players can expect:
And here are some details about the Zerg:
The aforementioned Archon co-op mode is described by Blizzard as follows: “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 meanwhile, “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.”
Finally, here’s StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void’s suitably cinematic ‘Oblivion’ trailer. No pricing information or release date details appear to have been divulged at this point.
