On November the 10th, the world will finally get their grubby paws on Legacy of the Void – the Protoss component of the StarCraft II Trilogy. Blizzard have been hard at work, and not just on the campaign and multiplayer component of the upcoming expansion. No, they’re giving the StarCraft II user interface a complete overhaul too.
With the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void release drawing closer, it’s no wonder that Heroes of the Storm is giving that franchise some attention. Blizzard’s MOBA may have the likes of Kerrigan, Raynor, and even the almighty Tassader running around, but it lacks a proper support character from that particular universe. That will no longer be the case, because Lieutenant Morales is about ready to enter the Nexus.
Legacy of the Void, the last piece of the StarCraft II trilogy puzzle, is due later this year – something which has now officially been confirmed at Gamescom. The final chapter in the series will bring with it not only the expected campaign, relentless click-click-click multiplayer, and the new Archon Mode, but also a brand new feature called Allied Commanders. We chatted to developers at Gamescom to find out more about this new feature.
