“This is the Protoss on their last legs, in their final hours, fighting against the darkness that threatens to consume the Universe. And they are the only ones who can stand up to the forces that are arrayed against them. They are the proud few warriors facing the void, facing oblivion on their own, and slowly being picked off one by one. And that’s what we’re going to try and get across in Legacy of the Void, that real sense of doom, and really give you the sense of what it is like to be this race with those long, and amazing, and glorious traditions, slowly being consumed and snuffed out.”
With this quote from Starcraft 2 Game Director Dustin Browder, it’s safe to say that the overarching story in Starcraft 2, and its expansions, is going to come to an epic conclusion. Coming off of the darkest storyline in “Heart of the Swarm” it sounds like it’s only going to get darker as the Protoss’ light continues its path to being snuffed out for good.
The Legacy of the Void expansion is scheduled to be released later this year.
