Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void Opening Cinematic

Posted on September 25, 2015  in Gaming

The Swarm brought ruin to our world. Our proud people became refugees. And yet, they could not shatter our unity. For we are bound by the Khala. The sacred union of our every thought and emotion. Today we retake our homeworld. And with it, our legacy!

I really love the Protoss so when my brother told me that Blizzard released a new opening cinematic for Starcraft 2 Legacy of the Void 2 weeks ago, I immediately searched for it and watch it right away.

I was really amazed!!! I love the golden armor of the Protoss, the charging of the ever reliable zealots. And I also realized that the sentinels are cute in animation. Of course most of the Protoss fanatics who watched it will be mesmerized when “the merging is complete” and Archons will shout “Power overwhelming!!!“. Bad luck for the Zerg, they let the Protoss build a pylon so this will be a warping galore for the Protoss.

I believe the cinematic is set in Aiur, and it seems the Protoss is focused to reclaim their old stronghold. I wonder why there so few zergs than usual, maybe their Queen took the Swarm to deal with the other greater enemy.

For more Legacy of the Void backstory, enjoy this video posted by Blizzard today…

I am excited with Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void and I can’t wait for the November 10, 2015 launch!!!

Hope you liked my Starcraft post here at menardconnect.com.

Starcraft 2: Unexpected Encounter @ Yahoo! Video

The games is available in two packages: A USD60 retail boxed copy and a USD100 collectors box copy which comes with an art book, a soundtrack and an exclusive in game pet for WoW (World of Warcraft) and some other cool Blizzard stuffs.

We will be seeing once again the Terrans battle it out with the Zergs and Protoss and for me this is really exciting since the game developers have been giving out some teasers for more than a year already.

The game time-line is set four years after the Starcraft: Brood War campaign ended and fans will be seeing familiar characters like Raynor, Zeratul, Kerrigan, Mengsk and many more.

Thanks to SpiderHam for the related Starcraft II article.

Are you excited for the Starcraft 2 release too? Feel free to leave some comments here.
