Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void Beta Update: A new Terran unit and Gameplay changes!
One of the most awaited events, Gamescon’ 2015 is still to arrive but Blizzard has already announced its lineup for the event. Everyone will have a chance to question the new game play changes that have been brought about. Starcraft 2 website have just revealed updated changes in “Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void” and these details were spoken out by the developers themselves. Details mainly consisted of new Terran unit that was brought about on this patch as experimentation.
This is what the developer had to say about the new patch:
In general, we believe that armies made from the Factory or Starport will be more capable as independent compositions in Legacy of the Void. Players will be able to commit to a tech-path specifically, and so we are also interested in splitting out the mech and air upgrades again. We believe that bringing back this choice is a potential improvement for the game.
