Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void Closed Beta Opening Soon
Blizzard's new expansion for Starcraft II is getting a beta that you don't want to miss. This awesome preview video shows all the new units being added to it.
Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void is promising a lot of changes to the Terran, Protoss and Zerg gameplay that you know and love. We're not sure how we feel about the changes yet, but one example of how it will be changing is the worker count. Kotaku reports that starting worker count is not only going to increase, but double, according to Blizzard. If you know anything about Starcraft II, you know this will change the name of the game. Here's what Blizzard had to say about some of the upcoming changes:
This change is meant to reduce the downtime at the start of games, since the first few minutes of any game often grant little in the way of choices. So far, 12 feels like a good starting point for us, but we wonder if we can increase this even further without affecting early game choices too much.
This won't be the only change that will be showing up in the beta, however:
For the beta, we're altering the number of resources at each base. Half the mineral patches have 1500 minerals, and the other half have 750. The main goal here was to make a change that would keep the feel of resourcing rates similar to Heart of the Swarm, while simultaneously encouraging players to take additional expansions more aggressively.
Some other changes include scan ranges getting buffed and a bunch of new units such as flashy, teleporting Protoss Adept and the artillery unit, the Zerg Ravager.
While no release date has been set, make sure you're looking out for the closed beta for Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, which starts on March 31.
