The Epic Conclusion to the StarCraft II Trilogy

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void is the epic conclusion to the StarCraft II trilogy. Developed by Blizzard Entertainment, it was released on November 10, 2015, for Microsoft Windows and macOS. The game follows the story of Hierarch Artanis, leader of the protoss race, as he seeks to reclaim his homeworld of Aiur from the zerg Swarm and the ancient evil, Amon.


Legacy of the Void is a real-time strategy (RTS) game in which players control one of three races: the protoss, the terrans, or the zerg. Each race has its own unique units, buildings, and abilities. Players must use their resources to build up their armies and defeat their opponents.

Legacy of the Void introduces several new features to the StarCraft II gameplay, including:

  • Asymmetrical balance: The three races are now more distinct from each other in terms of their strengths and weaknesses. This makes for a more varied and challenging multiplayer experience.
  • New units and abilities: Each race has received new units and abilities in Legacy of the Void. This gives players more options to customize their armies and strategies.
  • Archon mode: Archon mode is a new cooperative multiplayer mode in which two players control a single army. This mode is perfect for players who want to team up and take on the AI together.


The story of Legacy of the Void begins several years after the events of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. The protoss race has been scattered across the galaxy, their homeworld of Aiur in ruins. Artanis, the new Hierarch of the protoss, has raised a powerful fleet of warships known as the Golden Armada. With this fleet, Artanis intends to reclaim Aiur and reunite the protoss race.

However, Artanis’s plans are threatened by the ancient evil, Amon. Amon is a powerful being who seeks to consume all life in the galaxy. Artanis must rally the protoss factions and defeat Amon before it is too late.


Legacy of the Void received critical acclaim upon release. The game was praised for its well-written story, challenging gameplay, and beautiful graphics. Many reviewers called it the best StarCraft II expansion yet.

Legacy of the Void was also a commercial success. The game sold over 1 million copies in its first week of release. It is currently the best-selling StarCraft II expansion of all time.


Legacy of the Void is a fitting conclusion to the StarCraft II trilogy. The game offers a satisfying story, challenging gameplay, and beautiful graphics. It is a must-play for fans of the StarCraft series and RTS games in general.
