Legacy of the Void is, by far, Blizzard’s best game released in the RTS series ever since Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne. Legacy of the Void has a fantastic storyline giving the players a unique experience in terms of action, emotional involvement and an open ending. It would be a mistake not to commend this game, given the effort that was put into it and the great result that has come out of it.
Before we go on, we have to warn you that this article will contain spoilers in order to highlight how good the game actually is, so if you are interested in buying the game and want to be surprised by the awesome features that it has to offer, we suggest that you back away now and proceed to wait for your money to enter your bank account.
The game starts with Zeratul’s mission to find the last piece of the prophecy. He travels through the Void so he may find it and he does manage to achieve this at the cost of Talis’ life, a protoss who also happened to be in the same area and helped Zeratul escape. As Artanis rallies the protoss army to begin reclaiming their planet, Zeratul warns them that the invasion is a distraction from the war with Amon that should be waged quickly. His warnings fall of deaf ears.
Amon manages to corrupt the Khala, taking control of all protoss, Artanis included. Zeratul ultimately has to sacrifice himself to free Artanis from Amon’s will. Artanis then takes his green blade and places it on his right hand, as a tribute to Zeratul and his sacrifice for the people of Aiur. He then proceeds in his journey to stop Amon, trying to reach the Xel’Naga in order to stop the dark god.
His journey brings him together with Raynor and Kerrigan, who both unite their forces with the protoss leader for the greater good. Artanis and Kerrigan’s journey does not end well as they find the Xel’Naga dead, so it is left to the protoss, who are now in chaos, corrupted through the Khala by Amon to do his bidding, to stop him. They all eventually sever their nerve cords in order to break free of the Khala and Amon is destroyed.
Kerrigan ends up being a Xel’Naga herself after receiving the essence of the final living Xel’Naga, ending the chaotic generation that they faced. Legacy of the Void has a fantastic storyline, bringing together courage, sacrifice, honor and freedom to the table, subjects that Blizzard successfully mastered years ago.
