Default Legacy of the Void news thread

New trailer.


The female red-eyed protoss is most likely Rohana. Her corruption makes sense, since she has super-deep connection to the Khala. Maybe Artanis will be able to save her somehow. Who knows. The male one is... dunno maybe the Tal'darim leader. He doesn't look like archon, so it's not Ulrezaj. And he doesn't look like xel'naga too.

What is Whispers of Oblivion?
Whispers of Oblivion is a special three-mission prologue series that has been created to bridge the storyline between Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void.

What can we expect from these missions?
In Whispers of Oblivion, players will join Zeratul for the first time since Wings of Liberty to unravel the final piece of the Xel’naga prophecy.

How can I play these new campaign missions?
We will be making Whispers of Oblivion available to all players before the game’s release, but prior to that, we will be providing early access to the Prologue missions with pre-purchase of the game. Look for more details sometime in July.

Rohana's corruption is probably inevitable, she's supposed to represent the way the protoss were, and is prejudiced against Terrans/Dark Templar and we all know how Blizz handles nuance.

James Waugh, LotV's lead writer after Brian Kindregan was moved to the Diablo team.


I worked with him closely on CDev but IIRC I don't think he's ever ever written a game, so I'm curious to see if his style is significantly different from Brian's.

We shouldn't lump all of Blizzard together. In SC1, Aldaris was vindicated.

But you're right that it's unsurprising within the context of SC2, where shit is so black-and-white.

Edit: It seems that the "Why We Fight" manga has been retconned. It is no longer the Khalai of the Protoss Protectorate, but the Aiur protoss of the Daelaam. I wonder if this was an in- or out-of-universe change. I assume Khalai was dropped because the Khala will be gone for 9/10ths of LotV.
New comic!

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/media/bl...nis-sacrifice/

We get to see the Hierarchy in all their inconsistently-drawn glory!

Also, "Aiur protoss" is used/shilled as a proper noun again, but the term "Khalai" is still in vogue.

Aldaris had A HAT!

Artanis' portrait from "In Utter Darkness" seems to be his non-hierarch armor. Timeline differences!

Who gives a fuck about Kerrigan and Raynor? What about the Protoss? Or the Zerg?

Hope it's legit to post this info here. If not, excuse me please.



Sector 6 was written by Micky Neilson.

"Sector 6 follows a Moebius Corps squad as they spiral down a rabbit hole of insanity, a condition that may be linked to an ages-old alien relic. Will they overcome the mysterious forces that push them to the brink of mental meltdown? You?ll have to read to find out!"
