Blizzard has been beta testing its next expansion for Starcraft 2 for quite some time now and soon, we will get to play it for ourselves as the release date for Legacy of the Void has been announced. In addition to the release date, Blizzard also released the opening cinematic.
The news was all announced during the Starcraft 2 World Championship Series tournament, held in Poland over the weekend. Legacy of the Void will be launching on the 10th of November, you can watch the opening cinematic below:[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vvEzm9DlDQ’]
Legacy of the Void will focus on the Protoss story line, following on from the base game and Heart of the Swarm. As you would expect, the expansion is bringing along plenty of changes to the game and new units for new strategies in multiplayer. Additionally, there is going to be a new ‘Archon game mode’, which will allow two people to share a base and work together to take down opponents.
Pre-ordering the game will get you instant beta access. The standard edition will set you back $39.99, while the digital deluxe edition will be $59.99. In the UK, that translates to £29.99 and £44.99 respectively.
