Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void closed beta is live!
We're excited to let you know that invites for the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Closed Beta are going out today!

This initial phase of the Closed Beta will include ongoing changes to previously-announced multiplayer units as well as the introduction of a new Protoss unit—the Adept. Players with access to the Closed Beta will be able to check out PvP multiplayer action as well as Archon Mode, a cooperative/competitive multiplayer mode where two players share control of one base and army, combining forces to take on another opponent or team.

**Please note that there is no NDA on the beta content; however, please be sure to tag any coverage or content as Legacy of the Void Closed Beta as the game is still a work-in-progress **

The complete list of changes and features are available in the patch notes and a general Closed Beta FAQ can be found here

Additional details about what's in this first phase of the Closed Beta follows.



In addition to ongoing updates to previously-announced MP units, we're excited to debut:

A New Protoss Unit: The Adept
The Adept is a core gateway unit with a ground-only ranged attack and normal movement speed.
The Adept has an ability that sends out a mirror image of itself, and after a fixed duration, the unit teleports to the location of its duplicate - The duplicate can independently move around, but cannot attack or be attacked, and does not impede upon the actions of the main unit.

New Maps:

Ruins of Seras – Seras is an ancient temple in a mountainous region of Aiur, the Protoss homeworld. It currently stands in ruins, surrounded by an encroaching jungle.
Lerilak Crest – Named after the Dark Templar who discovered it, this is an area on a Dark Templar world, embedded by xel’naga ruins.
Orbital Shipyard – Floating high above Korhal IV, this is a Terran starship repair platform.
