Starcraft II is getting co-op in the form of Allied Commanders

Starcraft II Allied Commanders

Starcraft II’s new Legacy of the Void expansion is adding a new co-op set of missions to the game. Allied Commanders mode will allow players to play as one of three Starcraft characters and ally with a second player to complete objectives. 

Each commander has a distinct play style and devastating abilities, as well as new cooperative powers exclusive to the Allied Commanders mode. New abilities, units, and upgrades are unlocked as the commanders work together to dominate each mission.

Three commanders have been revealed so far: Jim Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis, each representing each of the game’s factions. You can see some of their special abilities in actions in the trailer above.

Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void releases later this year.
