Blizzard today revealed the final stand-alone chapter in the StarCraft II trilogy, Legacy of the Void.
Legacy of the Void will feature the Protoss race’s singleplayer campaign, introduce new multiplayer units, and two new cooperative modes: Archon mode and Allied Commanders mode.
Legacy of the Void’s singleplayer campaign will pick up where 2013’s Zerg-themed Heart of the Swarm left off. “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,” said Blizzard in a press release. “The fates of Terran hero Jim Raynor and Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades, also hang in the balance.”
In cooperative, Archon mode will allow two players to share one base and all its units, and go head to head against another team doing the same. Allied Commanders is an objective-based mode in which players take control of powerful StarCraft heroes, each with its unique abilities, upgrades and bonuses.
There will be a number of new units added to multiplayer. Legacy of the Void will see the return of the fan-favourite Zerg Lurker. The Protoss have a new weapon called the Disruptor, which can use massive energy spikes to wreak havoc through swaths of ground forces. The Terrans will gain new technology , such as Tactical Jump, which allows their Battlecruisers to teleport to any location on the battlefield.
Legacy of the Void will also include new online functionality, such as automated tournaments.
