Blizzard unveils 'StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void' and new IP 'Overwatch' at BlizzCon 2014

While it's not often that we cover gaming here at Neowin, Blizzard has unveiled quite a bit of news today at its annual BlizzCon event that's fit to print. While it's only the first day of the conference, Blizzard has announced two major titles coming in the future: Overwatch, and StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.


Overwatch is an amazing diversion from what we have come to expect from Blizzard. ​The newly unveiled title is a team-based shooter that has a unique cast of characters. Players can choose from four classes: offense, defense, tank, and support. Currently, there are two modes of gameplay. Although details are scarce, the game is expected to make its debut sometime in 2015. For those interested, Blizzard is now accepting applications for the beta.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void

It's been over four years since the release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Rather than having eager fans await the release of a completed project, Blizzard released StarCraft II in an episodic manner. In 2015, the final chapter will be released: StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. This will undoubtedly be the most exciting chapter from the series as it will focus on the much loved Protoss. Although there isn't a firm release date, Blizzard has opened up a beta sign-up page for those that are eager to gain early access.
