on November 7, 2014 9:21 PM

Earlier today Blizzard revealed the first details of Legacy of the Void, the final installment in the StarCraft 2 trilogy, and has now released videos detailing all of the new units coming to multiplayer

Terrans have added some new interesting units like the Herc that can hookshoot its way to units and the Cyclone that moves swiftly like Stalkers, while adding new enhancements like the tactical jump that allows Battlecruisers to teleport to any location on the battlefield. The Protoss have deployed new units like the Disruptor, which can use massive energy spikes to deploy devastating area of effect damage, while retooling units like the Immortal by replacing its passive ability with an active one that makes it immune to damage for a short period of time. Of course, the biggest news to come from this was the changes for the Zerg, who are finally getting the classic Lurker unit back from the days of Brood War to lay waste to infantry with its deadly burrowed spines.

You can watch all three videos detailing the changes to Terran, Protoss and Zerg below. Don’t forget to sign up for the Legacy of the Void beta for your chance to test the new units before the game launches at a yet to be determined date.
