Forget that other silly, post-apocalyptic title with that blond-haired kid giving a thumbs up, for today, we stand for Aiur! That’s right, Legacy of the Void, the last part of the StarCraft II trilogy is out today too, and it promises to be something special.

There’ll be something for everybody, including solo, multiplayer, and co-op content. Here’s a brief overview of everything one can look forward to, taken straight from the StarCraft II blog:

The Campaign

  • Command the noble Protoss to save the galaxy over the course of 19 exciting missions that span multiple worlds.
  • Take control of the ancient Protoss arkship, the Spear of Adun, to call down devastating strikes directly onto the battlefield.
  • Explore mysterious new planets with the addition of eight new and vibrant tilesets.
  • After you’ve completed the Legacy of the Void campaign, experience the resolution to the storylines of Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan, and Artanis in “Into the Void”, the 3-mission epilogue campaign to Legacy of the Void and the capstone to the epic story that begun in the original StarCraft.

The Multiplayer

  • Six new units have been added across the Terran, Protoss, and Zerg races.
  • A number of existing units from both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm have been retrofitted with new abilities and upgrades.
  • Wage war across 10 new multiplayer maps with more to come in each new ladder season.

Co-op Missions

  • Play cooperatively with your friend, or be paired with a partner of your skill level.
  • You each select one of StarCraft’s legendary commanders, which defines your army options.
  • Work together on a campaign-style mission, with objectives that need to be completed in order to win.
  • Completing missions gains you experience and levels up your commander.
  • As levels are unlocked, gain new powerful abilities that increase the strength of your commander.

Co-op

Archon Mode

  • Two players team up to share control of a single base.
  • Play at a new level of competition, with your combined focus allowing for more complex strategies.
  • Compete on the ranked ladder, all the way up to Grandmaster League!

And that’s not all. There new automated tournaments too, and a bunch of other small additions that have been thrown into the package. My copy of the game is staring me down as we speak. Don’t mind me, I’m off to get lost in all the modes, for a very, very long time.

What about you? Are you excited for Legacy of the Void?

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      So soulless of you

    • hairyknees

      This was not a sponsored post 😛 I wrote it because I’m THAT excited for Legacy of the Void 😀

      • Hammersteyn

        I’m excited for all you can eat ribs tonight. I should write too 😛

        • No doubt he’ll take a picture and share it too? BWAHAHAH

        • miaau

          all you can eat ribs? Sounds good. I think.

          Hmm, with no basting, right? Real ribs?

          • Hammersteyn

            I think there’s basting. They’ll probably cancel the special after tonight when I’m done

          • that I can believe! Poor bastards.

          • miaau

            I hate basting

            1. Sugar, diabetic
            2. Real meat, smoked taste… hmm.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I like rubbing my face with bread afterwards from ear to ear to get the last sauce off as I don’t hold back when nomnomming ribs

          • miaau

            I used to do that as a child, till we figured out why I got so sick after certain foods and I hated cake and sweets.

            Ah, the memories. Also, to (gross!!!) suck on the cloth used to clean our hands…..

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I never did that, and I never will.
            Gross dude

          • miaau

            Hey, I was like 5. Gross now, did it then. We ate ribs at home, not out, marinated massively, a fair amount when I was very little.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            If you eat your own bodymass in ribs, you will cancel their profits for the rest of the month

          • miaau

            Well, enjoy it. Really, sounds like you are looking forward to it.

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          I like to call these “all you can eat” things as “getting 5 times the value for money”

          • Hammersteyn

            At least 5 times

      • I think you misunderstood me. Geoff gave me a cookie to comment 😛 teheehehehe

        • hairyknees

          I never got a cookie 🙁

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I INTERCEPTED THE COOKIE!

          • GOOD

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Awwwwww…

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “it promises to be something special.”

    Aiur hope so!

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      You are such a zealot

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I don’t give a protoss.

        • GeoffChisnall

          Stop terranizing everyone.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Damn it, I’m all out of Starcraft-related puns.

            Something, something, zerg and witty. 🙁

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Just call Rince a firebat…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            But Firebats are cool, he’s more like the Creep.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Purple and retracts when the host is killed?

            WHO IS THE HOST?

            Ewwwww.

            More like a broodling, small, annoying and doesn’t last long

          • Oi!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            See this is why this isn’t working for me. I had to google Creep to see if I remembered the name correctly. Last Starcraft I played was 1, when it was released. When was that? 100 years ago? I dunno. Too lazy to google again.

          • miaau

            Radiohead, right? When you googled creep? Ah, the good old days.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Well I googled “Starcraft Creep”. I’d prefer not to imagine what I’d have returned if I just searched for creep heh. A picture of Rince or something.

          • So mean!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

          • You are a loser, so not possible!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            ….

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            O_O

          • Yes, I am!

        • Not what we’ve been told *RUNS

    Useless Fu****g morons, last time I order anything from them.

    • miaau

      that sucks, I have found them effective and capable of correcting the odd screw they have had.

      Sorry to hear that. Good luck and I hope it gets to very soon.

      • Lardus-For the Emperor!

  • SmurFyZA

    Keen to play tonight 🙂

  • I will be playing a massive amount of FallCraft the next few weeks. Ill start with SC2 as it is already good to go and when fallout is ready ill switch over to that for a bit.

  • Darren Hill

    Are there no reviews for this game yet? :O Really interested in if the story ends up closing well

    • hairyknees

      I’d imagine it does (to an extent). They announced that Nova DLC which takes place after Legacy of the Void. Maybe the Protoss all died though 😛
