Blizzard has announced that StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, the standalone final chapter in the StarCraft II “trilogy,” will be released exclusively for the PC on November 10:
In the expansive new Protoss-focused campaign, players will take command of the mighty Spear of Adun — a magnificent Protoss arkship capable of altering the course of battle from above. Players will guide Protoss legends Artanis and Zeratul as they fight to unite the Protoss race, take back their homeworld, and vanquish the ancient evil that threatens the universe. In addition to determining the Protoss’s destiny, players will also bear witness to the ultimate fates of Terran hero Jim Raynor, the former marshal turned rebel leader, and Kerrigan, the Zerg Queen of Blades.
“Legacy of the Void provides an epic conclusion to a story more than 17 years in the making,” said Mike Morhaime, Blizzard’s CEO. “It also brings tremendous enhancements to StarCraft II’s definitive real-time strategy gameplay, with new units, automated tournaments, collaborative game modes, and more. We can’t wait for players to experience it all this November.”
Players interested in pre-ordering StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void will have plenty of options. More details on the add-ons and bonuses found in the game’s three pre-order packages can be found after the break.
