StarCraft is the $5,000 guitar of video games. You think it looks cool, and love having a bit of a play, but it’s best left in the hands of someone who can really shred.
Yet the past two StarCraft II expansions have managed to yank me back in. And based on the preview I experienced at the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco this month of the third instalment – Legacy of the Void – I’m sure it’ll steal quite a few hours of my time again.
games.on.net was given limited hands-on access to Legacy of the Void’s multiplayer. While we didn’t get to see a lot, we were able to try the new Archon co-op mode – and it may just help some newer players get back into the game which, quite frankly, still has a scary learning curve.
