StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void enters closed beta on March 31st

The second and final StarCraft II expansion, Legacy of the Void, will enter its beta phase on March 31st. Following the Terran themed Wings of Liberty and the Zerg focused Heart of the Swarm expansions, Legacy of the Void will be a Protoss centric finale to the story. The single player campaign will follow Protoss heroes Artanis and Zeratul while possibly offering closure to the storylines of the previous protagonists, Jim Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan. 

Along with the new single player campaign, Blizzard has updated the multiplayer component of the game with additional units and revised unit abilities. The additions will be a combination of units from older games like the ground based Zerg Lurker and new ones like the long range Terran Cyclone.  Blizzard will also be adding new multiplayer modes. The first is the Archon Mode, a co-operative mode where two players share control of one base while competeting against other pair. The other is Allied Commanders, an objective based co-op mode where players assume the role of iconic Starcraft commanders. Each commander has unique, upgradeable abilities and provide special bonuses for their respective armies as players fight through special scenarios together.
