The final expansion for StarCraft II, Legacy Of The Void [official site], is expected to appear before the end of 2015. But in the meantime, those who pre-order the game (don’t pre-order – Ed) can gain immediate access to the beta for prologue missions, Whispers Of Oblivion. We sent Rob Zacny in to take a look at both that short campaign, and the multiplayer for the expansion.
Perhaps it was unfair to expect too much from Whispers Of Oblivion. It’s a Legacy Of The Void pre-order bonus that will be free for everyone when the game launches later this year. It’s the StarCraft equivalent of a Happy Meal toy. I might have enjoyed it more, except that I started replaying the Wings of Liberty campaign, and thinking about all the places StarCraft 2 has gone — and hasn’t gone — in the last five years.
