Blizzard has finally revealed information about the final installment of the Starcraft II trilogy. Legacy of the Void will be available as both an expansion pack to the original game, and as a standalone game that doesn’t require an previous purchases. This allows players who don’t own the first two Starcraft II titles to jump into everything. Although it also means that they will miss the previous installments of the story.
Legacy of the Void will close the chapter on the story, and will follow a unified Protoss race – with both Templar and Dark Templar side joining forces to reclaim their homeworld from the Zerg. This also brings the new Archon multiplayer mode, which provides a new twist to how the game in played. In Archon mode, two players will cooperatively manage a single base to face off against similar teams. How this works looks strange, but it brings micro-management and coordination to a whole new level.
There is still no news about when the game will be released, although Blizzard has opened Beta signups for Legacy of the Void.
