Have you played StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void yet? You should – it’s rather excellent. I’ve been playing the expansion quite a bit myself recently, and I still love it.
My time with the game gets split between competitive multiplayer and co-op missions. The latter in particular is a lot of fun, but the experience does grow a little thin. There are only a fixed amount of missions to undertake, and after a while, they begin to feel a bit repetitive – even if different commanders are being used.
Thankfully, Blizzard are going to rectify that somewhat. There’s a new co-op mission on the way.
Ji’nara, First Ascendant of the Tal’darim and Alarak’s second in command, has been challenged to the rite of Rak’Shir by a splinter faction that continues to worship Amon. If their mysterious challenger emerges victorious, Amon’s minions will be poised to seize control of the death fleet from Alarak and return its might to Amon’s grasp. Provide Ji’nara with the psionic support she requires to defeat Amon’s champion and put an end to this insurrection once and for all.
Chain of Ascension will play similarly to the one mission in Legacy of the Void where Artanis has to help Alarak become the highlord of the Tal’darim. That map was a lot of fun alone, so I can only imagine how cool it will be to tackle similar objectives with a friend.
You and your ally must help Ji’nara overcome her foe by keeping your army close. Your support will give her the strength to drive her enemy back, ultimately plunging them to their death. This psionic tug-of-war will ebb and flow depending on who has the stronger army.
The new mission will release with patch 3.2.0. I cant wait to play it! What about you? Are you excited for Chain of Ascension?
