Blizzard revealed the epic conclusion of the StarCraft II saga before a packed house at BlizzCon 2014!
The next chapter of StarCraft II will be a standalone product, not requiring any prior expansions of SC2. Attendees of BlizzCon were among the first to pay Legacy of the Void with single-player campaign missions, a new cooperative gameplay mode – Archon Mode, and multiplayer battles featuring several new playable units all on display. Yet another gameplay mode, Allied COmmanders, was also announced at the event.
LotV continues the story of SC2: Wings of Liberty where the first expansion, 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. 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, is a new way to enjoy StarCraft II with friends. Archon Mode allows two players to share control over a single base and units as they take on an enemy duo in multiplayer action.
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.
