…Yes, StarCraft II’s final chapter comes the same day the highly anticipated Fallout 4 is released. You woulsn’t be wtong to call it a dick move on Blizzard’s part though this is all the more reason to digitally PRE-ORDER their games and expansions: I have been preordering expansions since World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Like Apple, once you buy it, the license is your for life =D
Of course, I will be getting it. Weather you get the standard version ($40) or the Collector’s Edition ($60), you will get early access to a yet to be announced StarCraft II Character in Heroes of the Storm. My money’s on it being a major lore character introduced in LotV and likely a Protoss.
Speaking of the new expansion, its focus is on the Protoss. In Wings of Liberty, James Raynor showed humanity can hold its own against the fury of the Queen of Blades and the Zerg. In Heart of the Swarm, Sarah Kerrigan willingly shed her recently regained humanity to become The Queen of Blades once more. In Legacy of the Void, the Protoss will finally get theirs as Zeratul leads his people to reclaim their homeworld and their future.
Heart of the Swarm also revealed the true enemy of all three races: Amon, who seeks to destroy the galaxy. Corrupting The Overmind (Kerrigan’s predecessor) and destroying the Protoss homeworld were part of the plan, but then the events of Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm Happened. The creation of the Xel’Naga–half Zerg, half Protoss hybrids–are Amon’s most powerful and deadly weapons: Even the reborn Queen of Blades is barely a match against one of them. Facing a common enemy, all three races will have to put aside their differences and work together to survive.
Legacy of the Void comes November 10 =D
