Fans of Blizzard’s epic strategy game will be delighted to hear that the third game to the legendary series, dubbed StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, is coming on Windows and Mac this November 10. The game is the final episode, concluding the long saga that started in 1998.
At Blizzard’s event earlier today, co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime said that Legacy of the Void features enhancements to StarCraft II’s strategy gameplay, including new units, automated tournaments, collaborative game modes, and much more.
“Legacy of the Void provides an epic conclusion to a story more than 17 years in the making. We can’t wait for players to experience it all this November,” he said.
Legacy of the Void has many Protoss campaigns. Players control the commanders Artanis and Zeratul in their quest to regain their home, but it won’t be easy. A seemingly endless army of Zergs await the Protoss armada.

One interesting feature of the game is the Archon Mode, which lets two players share control over units. This is awesome since players can execute complex strategies and benefit from each other’s expertise. The game also features co-op missions, allowing players to team up and take on roles of the commanders. Together they will fight the enemies together.
Furthermore, new units have been added to the game. The Lurker returns to help the Zergs while the Terrans get a heavily-armed gunship called the Liberator, which possesses the ability to transform into a stationary air platform. Lastly, the Protoss army can use a new weapon called the Disruptor, which utilizes massive energy to slay enemies.
Blizzard also released the opening cinematic of the game. The video can be seen above. StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void is now available for pre-purchase on Battle.net for $39.99. Those who avail the pre-purchase promo will get immediate access to the Whispers of Oblivion prologue missions.
There’s also an option to upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition, which costs $59.99. This plan unlocks bonuses Archon battle pet for World of Warcraft, a Void Speeder mount in Heroes of the Storm, and a Protoss-themed card back in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The Collector’s Edition ($79.99) is retail-exclusive and includes a full-color hardcover StarCraft Field Manual.
