It’s easy to forget about other game launches on Fallout day, but Starcraft II is a big deal to some, especially those interested in the multiplayer side of the RTS game by Blizzard.
In what was a strange move by Blizz, they launched the last chapter of Starcraft II on the same day as the biggest game release of the year. Now 8 years old, Starcraft II is finalising story of that particular game, although we’re sure it’s not the last time we’ll see Starcraft, Jim and Kerrigan.
“When the First Contact War ended, Aiur had been conquered by the zerg Swarm. The protoss stood on the brink of oblivion, at risk of seeing their civilization disappear entirely. It was Artanis, a young executor, who prevented a bloody civil war and guided both the Khalai and Nerazim factions through the chaos of the Brood War. Now, with the Golden Armada at his command, he intends to take back Aiur and prepare his people for the final battle against an ancient and indomitable enemy.”
Legacy of the Void, is a standalone game, so you don’t need the base game. The focus of the campaign is the Protoss and their fight to reclaim their homeworld and save the galaxy. There’s new units to play around with in both the new missions and multiplayer modes. Players will also be able to play co-op in Archon mode, controlling the same base and units. There is also daily automated tournaments that players can partake in.
