StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void released earlier this month as a stand alone expansion. Players looking to jump right into the action would only be required to purchase this version to play Multiplayer and Legacy of the Void campaign.
The Protoss is the narrative of this expansion. The protoss evolve on Aiur; one of many worlds the xel'naga engineered. The xel'naga conceded that their latest creation was their first of all their experiments to evolve beyond the feral constraints of baser life-forms, and gave this new species the name of "protoss," or "Firstborn."
In the early, glorious days of protoss civilization, the Conclave built magnificent arkships, self-sustaining vessels capable of supporting protoss culture through its most desperate times. Armed with legendary warriors and knowledge of aeons past, the Spear of Adun will be Hierarch Artanis's flagship in the fight against Amon.
Come prove your might against participants from around the world in no-holds-barred tournaments that run once per day at specific times. Entries are open to players of all skill levels. Sign up, survive the elimination rounds, and face off against the best for ultimate dominance!
Two Player Single Base Control
Two heads are better than one: you and an ally share control over a single base to battle against two enemies in multiplayer action. Learn basic tactics from a seasoned veteran or amplify the power of a burgeoning all-star. Embody the spirit of the Archon and merge together to become a greater, unified force.
Objective Based Gameplay
Take command in a brand new game mode where you and a friend fight hosts of enemies in action-packed, objective-driven missions. Master the art of war with StarCraft legends such as Jim Raynor, Sarah Kerrigan, and Hierarch Artanis, and use their unique talents to turn the tide of battle in your favor. Level up to unlock additional units and new abilities—including exclusive team powers.
Legacy of the Void brings new combat units including the Adept, Disruptor, Cyclone, Liberator, Ravenger and Lurker.
My Life for Aiur!
Aiur is the protoss homeworld, located in a star system with a single yellow star and possessing a single moon not unlike Luna. It is at least the third of the system's terrestrial planets, if not further out.
A great psionic matrix emanates from Aiur. Protoss structures and units, to a lesser extent, draw their energy from it. A nexus provides a link to this matrix, but pylons are needed to actually tap into the energy required to provide psionic energy to new colonies.
