StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void Hits all the Sweet Spots
It’s been a few days as we took some rest from BlizzCon 2015, and then suddenly Blizzard took the liberty of taking away our remaining free time by releasing StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void. As many speculated, the latest expansion is surely a hit since almost everyone is praising their heart out about the game.
The lore of the 17 year old legacy is finally coming to an end with the expansion as the game takes you on a journey to finally claim home for Protoss and bring an end to the evil in Koprulu.
The new campaign will let you take the role of Artanis and also includes many new features including automated tournaments, Co-Op missions as well as Archon Mode.
Blizzard Entertainment CEO, Mike Morhaime made the following statement about the expansion;
“An epic campaign, game-changing multiplayer units, and all-new co-op and competitive modes combine to make Legacy of the Void our best StarCraft game yet. With more gameplay and story updates planned for after launch, and a new era of world-class StarCraft II esports ahead of us, the future of strategy gaming has never been brighter.”
One of the most promising feature in Legacy of the Void is the above stated Archon Mode in which two players join hands to control a single base and fight the enemy in multiplayer mode. Co-op missions also are a spice of the expansion as players can now team up to complete different challenges to level up on the ladder.
StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void developer Jack Huck also gave his two cents by commenting on how the game breaking expansion came into form.
“We have to be very critical of our work, you can’t take it personally, it’s almost to0 easy for us to try things, remove it and the move onto something new. That’s really how you achieve such a high level of quality, be ready to be critical of it and try not to get attached as it can always be made better”
Blizzard’s plans on Starcraft’s future are still unrevealed but rest assured that there is a lot to come for the award winning RTS.
If you haven’t got your hands on StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void yet, then you are missing a lot to say the least.
