Ever since the StarCraft 2 Legacy Of The Void announcement a while ago fans have been eagerly awaiting the concluding chapter to Blizzard’s continuation of their iconic StarCraft from way back in 1998.

Legacy of the Void will be a standalone experience that does not require players to own StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty® or Heart of the Swarm®, which are also now available as standalone games.

Legacy of the Void will be available in the retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition. As well as a special edition of the full-color hardcover StarCraft Field Manual; a DVD loaded with cinematics and special features; and a CD soundtrack. The Collector’s Edition will be available at select retailers.

The story…

The Protoss campaign will follow the stories of Artanis and Zeratul in their fight to unite their people and reclaim their homeworld. This chapter puts you in command of the legendary Spear Of Adun which is a mighty Protoss Arkship capable of more than just hovering around (to say the least).

In addition we’ll finally get to see what happens to Kerrigan and Jim Raynor as this chapter will wrap up everything pretty nicely.

Gameplay…

Legacy of The Void adds a few distinct new game features, namely;

  • Archon Mode – Two players command a single base and work together to achieve victory.
  • Co-op Missions – Players team up and take on the roles of powerful commanders, adding a leveling up ability to enhance the capability of your commander who in turn can be used in the co-op missions.
  • Automated tournaments – Ongoing events that will support the competitive StarCraft 2 community.

New units…

Some of the official new units are;

Zerg – The Lurker

Werner is a strange one...he quotes a lot of things...incoherently I might add, also he reviews stuff from time to time. We still don't truly understand what he is or where he came from. To quote him verbatim: Make sure they see my twitter handle so I can get hookers and drugs.
