Blizzard have announced that the highly-anticipated expansion to StarCraft II, dubbed Legacy of the Void, launches on November 10.

Legacy of the Void introduces a slew of new improvements and features, including Archon Mode, which sees two players share control over a single base and units as they take on an enemy duo in multiplayer, co-op missions, as well as new units, the return of the Lurker from StarCraft: Brood War, and automated tournaments that will support the competitive StarCraft II community.

“Legacy of the Void provides an epic conclusion to a story more than 17 years in the making,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment.

“It also brings tremendous enhancements to StarCraft II’s definitive real-time strategy gameplay, with new units, automatic tournaments, collaborative game modes, and more. We can’t wait for players to experience it all this November.”

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void is available for pre-purchase now on, with everyone who pre-purchases the game digitally getting immediate access to the Whispers of Oblivion prologue missions. Additionally, anyone who purchases or pre-purchases Legacy of the Void will also receive an upcoming hero in Heroes of the Storm called Artanis.

Those who upgrade their purchase to the Digital Deluxe Edition will unlock a variety of in-game bonuses for a handful of Blizzard’s titles as well, including an Archon battle pet for World of Warcraft, a Void Speeder mount in Heroes of the Storm, and a protoss-themed card back in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Finally, there will also be a retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition, which comes with the digital bonus items from the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a special edition of the full-color hardcover StarCraft Field Manual, a DVD filled with cinematics and special features, and a CD soundtrack.

The Legacy of the Void release date was announced during the StarCraft II World Championship Series Season 3, which was streamed live around the world from Krakow, Poland.
