  • Published in Strategy news

The final chapter in StarCraft II's expansion trilogy, Legacy of the Void, has been showcased at Blizzcon on Friday.

The last expansion pack, focusing on Protoss, adds a new single-player campaign, new cooperative gameplay modes: namely Archon Mode and Allied Commander Mode, and several new playable units. The expansion is a stand-alone offer, and does not require the base game, Wings of Liberty or Heart of the Swarm to be played.

"StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void continues the story of Blizzard's award-winning StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty where the first expansion, Heart of the Swarm, left off, with a new campaign that brings the sci-fi saga to an epic conclusion," reads the PR.

"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 grants control over a single base to two players, and then pit them against another team of two. "By sharing the responsibility of commanding troops and managing resources, players can focus on their own areas of the battle and execute more intricate strategies," Blizzard detailed.

On he other hand, Allied Commander is more of an objective-based mode allowing players to control "powerful commanders of the StarCraft Saga" and go through a series of "special scenarios together" using unique abilities and buffs. As players progress, the Commanders level up, and invest points in new abilities.

Lastly, the expansion adds several new units, such as the Zerg Ravager, the Protoss Disruptor or the Terran Cyclone. Also, the Lurker sees a return from the original StarCraft.
